Derek Jeter takes BP, runs, inches closer to returning

I love Jayson Nix. You love Jayson Nix. We ALL love Jayson Nix. But eventually the Jayson Nix dynasty will have to end. His replacement is on his way to the Yankees soon:

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has resumed on-field hitting after being shut down last month by left ankle soreness.

Jeter took 32 swings in batting practice Wednesday at the Yankees’ minor league complex. The 38-year-old superstar also ran for the second consecutive day.

There’s no timeline yet, but this is something.

    When the day comes — and we know it will — I hope Gator does a fair tribute to the Spring of Nix…and I hope it includes some kind of cheese and bacon concoction (cuz that dude is definitely bacon).

    That’s two more days in a row than I ran.
