Derek Jeter goes 1 for 2 and shows off his wheels in his second rehab game

Two rehab games in the book for The Captain, and so far so good.

Derek Jeter played in his second rehab game yesterday — playing DH — and went 1 for 2 with two walks. Better news, however, came when he went first to third on a teammate’s single. Spontaneous running is the probably the second best test he could undergo, just after nine innings worth of lateral movement at shortstop.

Looks like the Yankees will, at the very least, be able to activate Jeter to begin the second half next week. It’s possible he could be back even sooner.

    Great news. We Yankee fans have really missed having Jeter around. I kind of feel that given his place in MLB that even non Yankee fans miss him too. As baseball fans we all appreciate the great ones.

    as a fan of the red Sox, even I will admit baseball just doesn’t feel rights without ole Jeets

      Are you going to have Empty Nest Syndrome when he retires? I like Jeets, but he isn’t the game. I’ve enjoyed the season so far just fine. I hate to see him out injured, but it’s not like the game won’t go on or be interesting to watch without him. Geez.

    As for the other 48 states, we don’t give a crap about Jeter and haven’t even noticed he was missing.

    Considering the Yankees were able to keep it close without getting much if any offensive production from the left side of the infield this is great news. Nunez, Jeter and A-Rod in the line up sounds a whole lot better than Adams, Nix and whoever else the Yankees were running out there.

    One can’t expect any of them to come back and make an immediate impact, although Nunez has already made his presence felt, but these guys should be rounding into form by early August. It’s going to be one hellacious stretch run.

        Yes, it was, that was the whole point. Keep up.

        caeser12 that is either subtlety that will always and forever be lost on the folks around here or a brilliant save/comeback.

        Either way your doing great today!

    I wonder if Jeter has accidentally run into a bar called the Captain’s Table.

      Would he order the Me special?
