Apparently, it wasn't just a bone bruise that eventually led to Derek Jeter completely fracturing his ankle during the 2012 American League Championship series.  For weeks leading up to that moment, Jeter was hobbled by what had to this point been classified as a bone bruise.  But now, it appears Jeter may have known it was more than that. According to George A. King III of the New York Post, doctors told Jeter he had a stress fracture in his left foot.  The injury was likely a result of fouling numerous pitches off his foot and ankle.  It also clearly led to the fractured ankle in October.  However, the New York Yankees' brass say they didn't know about a stress fracture. “I was not aware of it,’’ Girardi said of Jeter talking about a stress fracture. “I am not aware of what he is talking about. I knew he had the bone bruise.’’ Jeter is in camp now and participating in drills.  The whole thing is a moot point, but there could be a concern about the Yankees sending a knowingly injured player onto the field.  If no one knew it was a stress fracture, there's no problem.  Players play with bone bruises all the time.  However, if the front office knew Jeter had a stress fracture and they let him play without the proper healing time, that's a problem. Jeter had a fantastic year last season, but now no one knows what to expect of him.  With permanent screws and a plate in his ankle, how much shortstop can he reasonably be expected to play?
