Found March 29, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters – including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com – that Derek Jeter will not play in another minor league game until next week, as he’s being shutdown as he continues to recover from an ankle injury. "He was here today with the physical therapist getting treatment and doing some work that way, so we'll give him a few days to calm down," Cashman said. "We'll back off completely. He won't be doing anything; he won't be playing any games here for the next few days." Jeter last appeared in a spring training game on Saturday when he suited up as designated hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Triple-A club. He experienced soreness in his ankle the next day and has since been receiving treatment. While Jeter is being shut down until next week, Cashman would not describe the soreness as a new issue. Instead, the captain is continuing to recover from the same significant ankle injury he suffered during the playoffs last season. With Jeter starting the regular season off on the disabled list, Eduardo Nunez is expected to serve as New York’s Opening Day starter at shortstop. Jeter will join fellow regulars Phil Hughes, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the DL to start the year.

Why Yanks will finish LAST in AL East

I have immense respect for the New York Yankees. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera -- first-ballot Hall of Famers who have spent their entire careers with the same franchise -- are class personified. Even amid talk of the mythical $189 million ceiling for next year, the Yankees (unlike other franchises) have an enduring commitment to winning, with 27 World Series championships to prove...

Yankees make Lyle Overbay their Man

AL BEast Notebook – March 28 The Yankees finished their Grapefruit League season today, losing 2-1 to the Pirates. After the game, Juan Rivera was released and according to ESPN New York’s Wallace Matthews, Lyle Overbay will be the starting first baseman for Opening Day and for the next six weeks. Well, almost. Their first game is against lefty Jon Lester, so it is likely that...

A-Rod working out

Sure, Alex Rodriguez won't be in the Yankees lineup on Opening Day. Thanks to offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum, the 37-year-old slugger likely will be out until at least the All-Star break. But don't worry Yankee fans, A-Rod is working out and doing his best to be ready sooner than later. On Friday, Rodriguez posted pictures of him working out on Facebook with...

Deja Vu all over again

The Yankees will enter the 2013 season without an offensive-minded catcher for the first time in about 17 years. The departure of Russell Martin has left much to be desired offensively from the current crop of backstops, mainly Francisco Cervelli – who figures to be the starter -  and likely backup Chris Stewart. The situation this year is very similar to what happened in 1996...

Jeter will be out of any game action until...
