Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported a little less than two weeks ago that “Yankees people” were targeting May 1 as a potential return date for injured shortstop Derek Jeter. But that’s not happening anymore.
According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, Jeter is “not close to game action” and the Yankees are easing off any sort of projections for his return. “He’ll be back when he’s back,” manager Joe Girardi told reporters on Tuesday evening.
Jeter is taking daily rounds of batting practice and fielding ground balls at the Yankees’ spring training complex in Tampa, Florida, but his surgically-repaired left ankle is simply not where it needs to be.
