MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter continues to target a Saturday return from the disabled list. He took another step toward that goal yesterday, taking batting practice on the field for the first time since hitting the DL as well as conducting roughly a half-dozen sprints, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Jeter indicated to reporters that yesterday's progress marked the first step in his return from a quadriceps injury that's sidelined him since prior to the All-Star break. The Captain said that he's not experiencing discomfort in his quad, which is an important first step.
"It's the first step," Jeter said. "That's
the key, is you don't want to feel it, and I don't feel it."
Before he returns, Jeter will have to be cleared to run the bases. He said he expects to increase his workload today, and it's a good sign that he's no longer experiencing discomfort in his quad. It doesn't appear that Jeter will require time in the minors on rehab assignment, especially if he's deemed able to be activated when eligible on Saturday.
Jeter's been sidelined since exiting his first game back from his initial stint on the DL, which was the result of his broken ankle from last fall. It's just one of the many injuries the Yankees have faced this season, which have at least in some part accounted for the team's struggles.

The Mets and Yankees don’t exactly have a heated rivalry, but nonetheless, one team dominates the town and the other is kind of a second-class citizen. So, perhaps it’s not surprising to see the Queens team take a potshot at its Bronx brother given the opportunity.
