Found August 13, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
New York Yankees' shortstop Derek Jeter, who has been on the disabled list with a calf strain, is eligible to come off the DL this weekend and is making progress, but manager Joe Girardi is unsure if Jeter will be ready by then. As reported by Josh Vitale and Chris Iseman of,  manager Joe Girardi isn't sure if Jeter will be ready to come back that soon, though. He said that Jeter was scheduled to begin taking tee and toss on Monday, and he could begin a running program in the next week. Injuries have plagued future Hall of Famers Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez all season, and Girardi was unsure who would return to the lineup first. "Initially, we thought we were going to get Derek back after Spring Training, and that didn't work. I'm not really sure I find it hard to believe that Alex has played more games than Derek or vice versa. But Derek came back first. It's just been a strange year." It has been a nightmarish season for Jeter, who has spent time on the DL three times.  He returned from a broken left ankle on July 11, but in the blink of an eye, was back on the DL with a quad strain.  He returned again on July 28 before going back on the DL with the calf strain just four games later. When Jeter does return, there has to be some question of his durability. He is 39 years old and coming off of several injuries this season. Could the role of designated hitter be in his future to keep the wear and tear that playing shortstop entails on his body? It will be interesting to see what the Yankees do with him moving forward.  Jeter has played in only five games this season and is 4 for 19 with a home run and two runs batted in.

Jeter takes BP, but return date uncertain

Derek Jeter took batting practice on the field yesterday for the first time since going on the disabled list with a strained right calf but after a season filled with injuries and setbacks he knows he doesn’t have much say in where he goes from there. “At this point do you think I have any input into anything that goes on around here?” Jeter said of his numerous issues coming...

Derek Jeter on return: 'I'll be ready when I'm ready'

Derek Jeter is eligible to come off the disabled list next Sunday, but — after two other failed attempts to get back in the lineup this season — he made no promises that he will be able to do so as he works to recover from a right calf strain.

Not close to returning, New York Yankees star Derek Jeter should fully heal and then begin chasing Pete Rose

Girardi: Jeter not quite ready for return from DL

Jeter no where close to returning

It looks like New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter won’t be back in the majors anytime soon after his third trip to the disabled list. Jete went on the D.L. on August 3 this time with a right calf strain. He’s stayed with the team in New York to work out but will be heading back to Florida when the current homsetand finishes up. Although Derek Jeter was seen throwing at...

Source: Ronald Martinez/Getty Images North America Derek Jeter has played in just five games this year, and none since Aug. 2, and the captain of Yankees is unlikely to return to the club anytime soon. Jeter, 39, is headed to Florida for rehab. “He’ll continue to increase his work here. When we go on the road, I think he’ll probably go down to Tampa and resume baseball activities...

Man impersonates Shane Spencer, claims steroid use

Yankees fans will always have fond memories of Shane Spencer. He was, for one September, their Roy Hobbs. Spencer, who nobody heard of, hit 10 home runs in 67 at bats in the September of 1998, three of them went for grand slams. It was not something anyone expected, especially with a team that only called him up to get some of the regulars healthy for an October run. That Yankees...

Alex Rodriguez hires top criminal lawyer Joe Tacopina

When the news of the Biogenesis suspensions came down there were no real surprises. A number of players were expected to be suspended for 50 games, Ryan Braun was expected to get a little more, and it was certainly not shocking that the league threw the figurative book at Alex Rodriguez. What is a little surprising 

Alfonso Soriano makes history with 13 RBIs in two days

If there is one thing that every baseball player wants other than a World Series trophy, it is to be remembered as one of the greats; to have their name mentioned in the same breath as legendary ball players such as Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano already has a pair of World Series rings from 

Former Yankee Shane Spencer Victim of Hoax As Imposter Implies Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera Used PEDs (Audio)

Note to radio producers: If you’re going to have a former Major League Baseball player on your program to talk about a sensitive topic such as performance-enhancing drugs, it might be a good idea to vet them, first. ESPN Radio 104.5 in Albany, N.Y., failed to do just that, and got burned in a pretty spectacular way Tuesday. Shane Spencer occupies a place in Yankees lore that far...
