According to Yankees' Manager Joe Girardi, Derek Jeter could return to the lineup as early as this weekend. http://t.co/bIQApyXyiA — theScore (@theScore) July 9, 2013 Asked if he could return to the Yankees by this weekend, Girardi said, "There's always a chance. You just have to see how he does the next three or four days." Jeter hopes to get back to the Yankees “as soon as possible,” admitting he pleaded his case with GM Brian Cashman even before playing in his third minor-league rehab game Monday night for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre. He went 0-2 with a walk and a run scored in five innings Monday night. “What do you think? Yeah, but I get it. It’s not like I don’t understand why I’m here,” Jeter said before going 0-for-2 with a walk and a run in five innings of the RailRiders’ game against Rochester. “I’m trying to push to get (to New York) today, but I don’t think I can make it today. So it’s whenever they say. “Really, I don’t know what else to say. I’d like to be there now, but I’m not, so as soon as I’m allowed to get up there, I’ll get up there.” In 18 seasons with the Yankees, Jeter has 255 home runs, 1254 RBIs and a franchise record 3304 hits.
