Derek Jeter cleared to progress into baseball activities and running

Good news for the Yankees this evening.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that Derek Jeter received clearance today to progress into baseball activities and running after he had his surgically-repaired left ankle examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina. Anderson performed the surgery back in October and later advised the veteran shortstop to shut things down after a crack was found in the ankle in April.

Jeter has already been playing catch and fielding ground balls hit directly out him, but now he can now expand things a bit. It’s important to note that the announcement from the Yankees said that the ankle is “healing,” and therefore not fully healed, so he still has a long way to go with his rehab, but it sounds like he’s moving in the right direction.

    They’re going to need a lot more than Jeter, this is the worst offensive Yankee team I can remember, just horrible.

      1990 team offense was worse.

    Like Jeter fields ground balls that aren’t hit directly at him.

      there is a second baseman to his left and a third baseman to his right, they
      also are equipped with gloves.

      why should he waste at bats in the minors, the team has to get ready for a second half run.
      they didn’t send him to Scranton to work on his game, the ankle has to be healed.

    So, they can expect him to be fully ready BSOHL for spring training?
