Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been dealing with a painful bone bruise in his left ankle since the middle of September. He was able to play through the discomfort over the final few weeks of the regular season, but he might have just aggravated the injury.

Jeter fouled a ball off his left foot in the third inning of Wednesday’s ALDS Game 3 against the Orioles and had to be lifted in the ninth after hobbling through a couple more at-bats and defensive chances.

He’d grimace after every swing, and his already-limited range at short was made even worse.

Jeter finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and two strikeouts. Jayson Nix came on to replace him in the field.

The Yankees currently trail the Orioles 2-1 in this five-game division series that is tied at a game apiece.

    That ibanez home run was huge and will now add more fuel to the fire about the on going ARod debate.

    Actually he fouled a ball off the top of his foot n wasn’t able to really put any pressure on it. Maybe you should watch the game since ya know it’s kinda yoyr job…
