Found October 20, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter underwent surgery Saturday to repair a left ankle fracture. The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. Jeter is expected to fully recover in four to five months. If there are no setbacks, Jeter should return for the start of spring training. Jeter, 36, sustained the injury while trying to make a diving ball in the 12th inning of the Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers. He dove to his left for a ball off the bat of Jhonny Peralta, then twisted his ankle as he crumbled to the ground.
