PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees

When we last saw Derek Jeter, the New York Yankees shortstop was being helped from the Yankee Stadium infield with a broken ankle during Game 1 of the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers. Fans had been waiting over six weeks to see how the 38-year-old player fared after surgery to repair his damaged left ankle and yesterday, they got to see a lot more of the Yankees' Captain then they ever saw before — especially around the middle area of his normally fit body. Jeter was spotted at a South Beach hotel in Miami Thursday wearing a walking boot to protect his valuable joint.  Photos of Jeter published in The New York Post showed New York's No. 1 bachelor sporting a bit of a paunch underneath his powder blue T-shirt. According to general manger Brian Cashman, Jeter has been in a non-weight bearing situation and will continue to be until January.  That means his workout routine has been limited — if he can do any cardio at all — and limited to his upper body because he can't put any weight on his left foot. Jeter has been spotted at the Yankees' minor league complex in Tampa a couple of times this offseason, but not on a regular schedule.  It's unknown if he was there for treatment, workouts or remember what infield dirt smells like again. The injury happened to the same ankle which had been nagging Jeter through the last half of the 2012 season.  He broke it during the embarrassing series against the Tigers while chasing down a ground ball.  The image of Jeter being helped from the field by manager Joe Girardi and a trainer is one fans would like to forget. The popular Jeter signed a three-year, $51 million contract with the Yankees before the 2011 season and has one more year left worth $17 million with an option for a fourth year when he turns 40. Anyone who has watched the prideful Jeter over the course of his Hall of Fame career knows it won't be long he is back in the gym working off the chimichangas. Remember also, pinstripes are very slimming.
