MLB Injury News:
Derek Jeter hasn't done anything baseball-related since fracturing his ankle in the playoffs this past season. He has simply been rehabbing and strengthening his ankle. Now, though, he is ready to start participating in baseball activities and workouts.
According to an Associated Press report, Jeter has been cleared by doctors to participate in baseball drills but he won't take the field until next week. He says he will be ready for the Yankees' opener on April 1st.
"I've got the OK to start," Jeter said . "But I don't start until next week or the week after, anyway. In terms of baseball activity, I'm right where I need to be."
Jeter's value was immediately felt in his absence last year during the playoffs. The Yankees looked lost without their captain. Jeter has always had the leadership qualities that kept the Yankees perennially successful even in lean times. During the ALCS last season, the team collapsed once Jeter was gone.
Jeter has spent every one of his 18 Major League seasons with the Yankees. He is entering the final year of his current contract, and his future is unknown at this point. What is known is how productive Jeter has been in his career. He is a lifetime .313/.382/.448 hitter.
