PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
From Mark Feinsand:Derek Jeter did hitting drills in the batting cage and fielded grounders Monday, moving one step closer to a return from the disabled list. Jeter was unsure whether he would be activated when he’s eligible Saturday, and while the Yankees seem skeptical that he’ll be ready by then, that remains the shortstop’s goal. “I’m going day-to-day, man,” Jeter said. “I want to play as soon as possible. Saturday is the first day I can play, so I want to play on Saturday. But I get it.” Jeter said he will take batting practice and run on Tuesday, checking off another box on his rehab list. While it may not be Saturday, Jeter will be back in Pinstripes pretty soon. If you want to see Jeter and the Yankees in person, you can always get your New York Yankees tickets right here, from SIH tickets.
