MLB Injury News:
May 1 could be a big day for the New York Yankees, as they
are hoping to get shortstop Derek Jeter and first baseman Mark Teixeira back on
that date. Right-hander Hiroki Kuroda plans on returning well before then, as
the veteran is hopefully he’ll make his next scheduled start.
Teixeira told reporters – including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com –
that his goal is to rejoin the Yankees on May 1. New York views that target as
optimistic, as the first baseman still needs to be cleared by doctors to resume
some baseball-related activities. At that point, Teixeira could begin swinging
a bat and work his way into minor league rehab contests.
New York and Teixeira both admit that surgery is still a possibility
for the slugger, which would require a longer stay on the disabled list.
However, this will only happen if his wrist doesn’t get better.
While Teixeira is open about his target date of May 1, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports heard from sources Jeter and the Yankees are eyeing the
same return timeframe for the captain. Neither he nor New York have confirmed
this, and Heyman doesn’t know if it will happen anytime soon, considering Jeter
still has a ways to go in his recovery.
Kuroda took a line drive off his throwing hand the other
night, forcing him to leave his first start of the season early. While the
veteran told reporters – including Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York – that he’s
still experiencing discomfort and doesn’t feel normal yet, he is planning on
making his next scheduled start.

From Andrew Marchand:Derek Jeter is not even hitting right now. Jeter is not even fielding right now. Jeter is not even running right now.
Jeter is not even close to getting in a minor league game or a simulated game.
So even Jeter, for all his positive traits and accomplishments, wasn't going to be ready by Saturday when he is eligible to come off the disabled list.
The New York Yankees are fresh off a disastrous spring.

The analysts, experts, baseball fans, and maybe science itself don’t think the Yankees will be good this year. With the massacre of injuries and both an April starting lineup and starting rotation, with an average age of about only 33 years old (you’d think it would be higher, I know) and a couple of old guys, one would say the 27-time-Champion...
Derek Jeter. Alex Rodriguez. Curtis Granderson. … Lyle Overbay?
These are not your grandfather’s Yankees of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. In fact, these aren’t even your older brother’s Yankees, with the first three names on that list sitting on the disabled list in New York. This version is not at all what we’ve come to expect from the Bronx Bombers.
