MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees will soon have their captain back. After playing just five games this season thanks to a myriad of injuries, Derek Jeter is nearing yet another return to the active roster. He is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment in Scranton today. Andy Mcullough of the New Jersey Star Ledger covered it last night:
Derek Jeter will go to Scranton and play five innings tomorrow.

Jeter has been on the DL since the beginning of August with a strained calf. That injury came almost immediately following a strained quad. And of course, the quad injury immediately came after Jeter's return from a fractured ankle. It's been a rough year for the long-time Yankees' shortstop to say the least.
The Yankees are just 6.5 games back in the American League East, so they are far from out of it. Jeter's eventual return could help them formally right the ship and truly compete down the stretch. It's been a three-way race most of the season the AL East. The Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, and Baltimore Oriole have all been battling it out for playoff positioning. Now, the Yankees can insert themselves into the conversation.
Jeter has not played enough this season to be able to judge what level of production can be expected. He's come back from quad and calf strains before in his career. But he's never had to come back from a severely fractured ankle. That will be the big question mark when Jeter returns and can play more than five games.
