Derek Jeter has a had a setback in his surgically repaired ankle. Jeter traveled to Charlotte for an unscheduled visit on Thursday to meet with Dr. Robert Anderson, the doctor who performed his initial surgery. During the visit, a CT scan revealed a small crack in the surgically-repaired left ankle. Jeter will avoid surgery and wait for the bone to heal on its own. He is expected to be back with the Yankees after the All-Star break if the ankle heals well, although nothing can be assumed with the aging Jeter’s body. Eduardo Nunez will continue to fill in at SS while being spelled by Jayson Nix.
