Derek Jeter expected to be activated from disabled list Sunday

UPDATE: It sounds like the simulated game went off without a hitch. According to Chad Jennings of the Journal News, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he expects Jeter to be in the lineup tomorrow.

10:16 AM: Derek Jeter is eligible to return from the disabled list today, but the Yankees are planning to give him an extra day as he works his way back from a right quad strain.

According to Peter Botte and Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News, the Yankees announced after last night’s game that Jeter will participate in a simulated game today. This means that the veteran shortstop will not be activated until Sunday at the earliest.

Jeter said prior to last night’s game that he feels fine, but clearly the Yankees don’t want to take any chances.

“I feel fine. . . . Everything feels good,” Jeter had said between batting practice and his medical examination. “Always hopeful. We’ll see. I really have nothing for you. I didn’t assume there would be anything (wrong). I didn’t think there would be anything. Glad there isn’t. Hopefully it’s fine.”

Jeter made his return from left ankle surgery on July 11, but he made it through just four at-bats before leaving the game with the quad strain. The fourth-place Yankees are hoping his next stint with the team lasts a bit longer.

    I wonder if the Yankees will backtrack and play Nunez at 3B? It’s not like they are going to have ARod for any significant amount of time.

      Eduardo Scissorhands’ decent bat & worthless glove vs. Lillibridge’s good glove & worthless bat. Great choice.

      DJ, Cash man said to STFU, no he didn’t, he would never say that to you, A-Rod
      yes, you no.

      best of luck, we need your bat and leadership.

        The biggest joke here is seeing a daily update on old new york players who are way past their prime. Please. They are in fourth place. They are junk.

        Most of them have been negative recently.

      “Another Yankee thread! Can’t have too many of them can’t we?”

    Would you rather them post stories on how the bluejays were ranked first by many in preseason and how they are actually in last and looking like they are staying there?

    • mgentis55 - Jul 27, 2013 at 6:21 PM

      yes. at least it would be different

    • proudlycanadian - Jul 27, 2013 at 6:24 PM

      Do not need that as long as Harry is around.

    Then why did you click on the story and leave a comment. If you don’t want to hear about them just skip over the story all together. If you click read and post don’t whine about hearing about them

    Is a “simulated game” like trying out for a fantasy league?

    • nbjays - Jul 27, 2013 at 1:17 PM

      A ‘simulated game” is like pretending to play baseball, which is what the Yankees have been doing fairly often of late anyway.

      • fanofevilempire - Jul 27, 2013 at 1:29 PM

        If the Yankees lose every game they play for as log as there is MLB they would
        always be better then the Blow Jays. If the Yankees decided to for what ever reason
        to terminate all baseball activities with MLB they would have to shut down all baseball
        operations of the other teams and dissolve MLB as it exists, MLB Baseball would no
        longer matter as all these current MLB teams who serve as Yankee opponents would no longer serve any importance as they only exists to provide an opponent for the Yankees
        to play and beat. If you have any questions please do not contact me as I have no interest
        discussing this any further, thank you for your time and attention.

        Am I the only one that loves that evilempire’s posts always look like they were written on a typewriter?

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 27, 2013 at 2:06 PM

        If only I had more to say I would totally steal the end-stop routine.

    Cue the dramatic music. Make up some extra gift baskets. Could this be the last ride of Derek Jeter?
    In my opinion if he doesn’t make it through to the end of the season injury free, he might just decline that option and retire. Never mind filing free agency to get more $. He really has nothing left to prove, or should I say that he can prove. He will not win an MVP next year if he plays at 40. He will not play another 5 seasons atempting to catch Cobb or Rose. What can Jeter possibly accomplish besides diluting his image? Of course in the mirror universe Derek Jeter returns, leads the Yankees offence in an improbable comeback against the O’s, Rays, and Sox that ends with a World Series appearance. Life in that universe, while more unlikely, would at least be a tiny bit more interesting.
    Which ever of these Universes it turns out we live in, next year will be a very different world in MLB just because Mo is gone. If Jeter is gone too…?

    Yanks have been a joke of a franchise since the 70’s.
