MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees continued to be without shortstop Derek Jeter for last night's series opener against the Baltimore Orioles, and the team has put forth no timeframe for the Captain's return. Instead, general manager Brian Cashman indicated that Jeter's ailing ankle is a "day-to-day thing," according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
"Right now, it's just a day-to-day thing," Yankees
general manager Brian Cashman said. "It was a little sore the other day,
something he really wasn't speaking to, but you could see the way he was moving
Jeter has been sidelined since exiting Saturday's contest early. He's continued to have his left ankle treated, and the team has said that he's only available in emergency. Cashman and manager Joe Girardi have both admitted that you can tell the ankle continues to bother Jeter.
It sounds like the team will keep Jeter off his ankle for as long as possible, but the emergency that was referenced would be if something would happen to fill-in shortstop Eduardo Nunez. In that case Jeter could be required to step in at short.
"I might use him in an emergency if I had to use him
tonight," Girardi said. "That's kind of the situation we're in. It's
not like I have a number of shortstops lying around."
Jeter has yet to address the injury publicly. He's declined interview requests as he continues to focus on having his ankle treated. While Jeter is a future Hall of Famer, there doesn't seem to be reason for the Yankees to rush him back. Prior to hitting the shelf once again, the 39-year-old was only hitting .190/.288/.254 over 73 plate appearances.

For the fourth time this season, Derek Jeter has been sidelined. There is no timetable for his return, and unless the Yankees reach the postseason — and there is still hope on that front — there is a decent chance that he will make no meaningful contribution to the team at all this season. Even […]
Do you remember where you were 12 years ago today? I do. I was in my second grade class with all of my friends just having a normal day like everyone else when chaos started to occur. Teachers went to meet outside to try and grasp what was actually going on. After the second plane hit it was clear that this was a deliberate attack against our nation. Was there more to come? Were...

Jeter, 39, played in just 17 games this season hitting a dismal .190/.288/.254 with a home run and eight runs scored.
The last time Jeter played was on Saturday against Boston. He would leave that game...
He is Derek Jeter so of course he was going to make it back for Opening Day. And when he refractured his left ankle the recalibration was to early in the second half — ahead of schedule for sure — to help save the Yankees’ season.
Jeter wasn’t going to be stopped by quad and calf setbacks and even this latest ankle misery hardly diluted the belief that somehow some way he...
On Friday, I asked Derek Jeter if it would be special to pass Paul Molitor for ninth place on the all-time hits list. Jeter was four hits shy of Molitor at the time, and I was curious if it would mean anything more to overtake a Hall of Famer against whom he once competed.
As I expected, Jeter mostly shrugged off the question, saying he only thought about such milestones when reporters...
