Found June 10, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
Derek Jeter was scheduled to meet with his surgeon this week in Charlotte, NC as part of a follow up examination on his injured ankle. He apparently had that meeting over the weekend, and received some good news. Jeter took 25 dry-swings and fielded grounders right at him on Monday in Tampa, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York. This represents a step in the right direction for the Captain, who had been limited to just throwing, cardio exercises and physical therapy. Expect Jeter to increase his baseball activities as long as his ankle responds well and his surgeon gives clearance. After setting a deadline to come back and trying to rush his rehab, Jeter re-injured his ankle. Now, the Yankees and the veteran shortstop have refused to put a timetable on a return, saying that they expect him to contribute after the All-Star break. With a weakened ankle and a body set to turn 39 years old in 16 days, it’s anyone’s guess when we’ll see Jeter back in the Bronx. To put things in perspective, GM Brian Cashman said last week that Alex Rodriguez’s rehab is ahead of Jeter’s; A-Rod, barring suspension, is due back around mid-season. Jeter is back on the field in Tampa. He took 25 dry swings today and fielded 20 grounders right at him, Brian Cashman told me. Story soon. — Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) June 10, 2013
