The hits keep coming for the Yankees. They have dealt with injuries to their bullpen and seem to be losing players at a frequent pace. One of the Yankees' more important players left the game today and this could seriously impact them if the injury is serious.
Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left today's game with an injury with or near his surgically repaired left ankle.
If Jeter did re-aggravate his left ankle injury, it would be an absolutely crushing blow to the Yankees. Nothing is known yet, but with Jeter, you always have to be concerned when you hear his name and the word "injury" brought up in the same sentence.
This season has been one of frustration for Jeter. He has battled injuries for most of the season and hasn't seemed to stay healthy for a long stretch of time. In 16 games this season, Jeter is hitting .186 with one home run and six RBI's. The severity of the injury is unknown, but this is a situation that is definitely worth monitoring. Stay tuned.
