Derek Jeter is one day closer to making his return from ankle surgery.

According to Peter Botte of the New York Daily News, Jeter played in his third rehab game with Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre tonight and went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. He also had three defensive chances at shortstop in five innings.

Jeter is now 1-for-6 with four walks and one strikeout during his rehab stint. As for the next step, the 39-year-old shortstop told Botte that he will get the day off tomorrow and “unless something changes,” he’ll play another rehab game Wednesday night. The expectation is that he’ll return immediately following the All-Star break, though there’s always the chance that he could be activated this weekend.

    Hopefully he is back in New York soon. A few more games in AAA and his intangibles will raise the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre Yankees to the major leagues, creating a very confusing situation.

      Correction: I see that the team was renamed the RailRiders this season, possibly to avoid just such a problem.

    That’s a really ugly uniform.

      I have always disliked the vest-style uniforms, and this one is particularly bad. Plus, it looks like they forgot to design pants, so they are just using leftover Yankee ones.
