MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees have Curtis Granderson and Jayson Nix on the way back. Both players are beginning minor league rehab assignments. On top of that, the team could have Derek Jeter back as early as Saturday, but manager Joe Giardi is not so sure that will happen.
Brian Hoch of MLB.com says the next logical step for Jeter would be to prove he can run the bases pain free and at 100 percent. He no longer has any apparent issues with his ankle, but he will need to prove the quadriceps strain is not hampering him. Once this happens, Jeter will likely return to the Yankees' 25-man roster without a rehab assignment. Jeter believes that could happen Saturday, but Girardi says don't count on it.
"Nothing's out of the question, but I'm not so sure we'll see him Saturday," Girardi said. "You've got to be able to run at 100 percent and know there's no soreness, no pain, and that everything works proper."
Jeter, of course, returned from his ankle injury, played one game, and was promptly injured and placed back on the DL. The Yankees cannot afford for that to happen again. In fact, they really can't afford for Jeter to miss anymore time period. They are five games over .500 and seven games back in the division.
Jeter had a career-year last season. He showed that even at his age, he could still produce. Now, the world wants to see if he can do it after coming back from not one but two ankle fractures and a quad injury. Seems like a long-shot, but this is Derek Jeter we're talking about. He generally makes the impossible seem possible.
