Derek Jeter is out for the postseason after fracturing his ankle while fielding a ground ball at short during the top of the 12th inning of ALCS Game 1 between the Yankees and Tigers on Saturday.
The Yankees shortstop was trying to field a grounder from Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta when he went down to the ground in obvious pain. He tried passing the ball to Robinson Cano to make a play, but his efforts were fruitless and Peralta reached on an infield single.
Jeter was carried off the field and replaced by Jayson Nix at shortstop. Detroit scored on the next batter to increase their lead to 6-4.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi told the media after the game that Jeter suffered a fractured ankle on the play and that he was out for three months. Eduardo Nunez will replace Jeter on the postseason roster.
The Yankees captain has been bothered by an ankle injury since September. He left a Sept. 12 game at Boston with a sprained ankle and served as the team’s designated hitter the next few games while trying to heal. He also hurt his left foot on Oct. 10 against the Orioles.

  • woo hoo... Great night. Tigers win in 12 and the whiny Derek Jeter breaks his lil ole ankle and is out for the season
  • Not a Stankee fan but cheering for an injury is just wrong, even if it is Jeter.
  • Does anybody really care ? !!!! Only ONE player ! He was already hurt and tried to play HERO !!! GO TIGERS !!!!!
