Derek Jeter has taken a major step towards returning to the Bronx.
Today, the Yankees announced that the Captain will begin a rehab assignment starting on Saturday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Jeter, who’s been recovering from a fractured ankle all season, is scheduled to play at least five innings at shortstop against Lehigh Valley.
Jeter had been working out in Tampa at the Yankees’ minor league complex, taking batting practice and fielding ground balls. On Wednesday, he was cleared to run the bases – the last hurdle a player is usually faced with before going on a rehab assignment. The Yankees have been taking things slow with the now 39-year-old veteran, since last time Jeter rushed his rehab and ultimately hurt himself again when X-rays revealed another break in the ankle.
The Yankees haven’t placed a return date on Jeter, leaving it open by saying they just expect him after the All-Star break. He will likely need all of the allotted 20 days of the rehab assignment in order to be ready to play. Meanwhile, Alex Rodriguez will continue his rehab with the Tampa Yankees after a couple of games with Single-A Charleston. You can maybe expect both Jeter and A-Rod to be back on the left side of the infield before the month is over.
#Yankees clear Jeter to begin rehab assignment. WIll join Triple A Scranton/WB tomorrow and is scheduled to play at least 5 innings at SS.

PAYING NO MIND
Saying "I know people think I’m nuts," Alex Rodriguez insists he’s not worried about what people say, he just wants the chance to compete on the field.
Ermon Lane knows how to break a tackle. FOX Sports reporter Amy Campbell probably just wishes he didn’t practice the skill at her expense.
Campbell was on the wrong side of a hit (pun intended) this week when she visited Beaverton, Ore., to film a high school football recruiting competition. She and her colleague, Chad Simmons, set up near the field to chat all things high school...
