Derek Jeter‘s recovery from a broken ankle has gone well enough that the Yankees shortstop has a date in mind for his spring training debut: March 10.

Jeter has repeatedly said that he expects to be ready for Opening Day and seeing game action beginning on March 10 would give him plenty of time for that, assuming he avoids any setbacks along the way.

General manager Brian Cashman told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that Jeter will likely play designated hitter initially “and then expand” to getting reps at shortstop, adding: “Physically he’s capable of doing everything. It’s just we’re being very cautious about how we take him out of the gate.”

    It’ll be interesting to see which Jeter returns, the 2011 version or the 2012. My guess is the former.

      Decline is inevitable, but a lot of people have looked really stupid for writing off Jeter over the last few years. Ortiz too.

    That pic is like a golf move.
