Derek Jeter lasted just one game when he returned from ankle surgery on July 11. We’ll see if his 39-year-old body cooperates a little more this time.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the veteran shortstop has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is batting second in the Yankees’ series finale against the Rays on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Jeter wound up sitting out for a little over two weeks with a strained quad that he suffered in his 2013 regular-season debut.

The Yankees enter play Sunday with an eight-game deficit behind the division-leading Rays in the American League East.

Yankees shortstops have hit .215/.269/.291 with two homers and 28 RBI in 104 games this year.

      Thanks for 2009!!!

    I am sure that Jeter will look simply majestic as he fields his position.

      just as he did when he carried out that #55 for Matsui.
      awesome!

    • southofheaven81 - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:27 PM

      How’s that foot taste?

      • proudlycanadian - Jul 28, 2013 at 2:17 PM

        I am sure that Jeter looked magnificent when he hit that home run and will continue to hit .400 over the rest of the season.

      • southofheaven81 - Jul 28, 2013 at 3:33 PM

        Yeah, you’ll sure have shown us when Jeter finally does get too old to play. Like he was supposed to be in 2008. And 2011. And now.

      im sure the jays will go another 20 years without making it to the show

    The climb back into first place starts today!!

    • cackalackyank - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:19 PM

      Could be…they just need some timely hitting, and for CC to put on his other left arm…you know, the one he can pitch with.

    • fanofevilempire - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:20 PM

      homerun for Jeter……………………
      he’s back…………………………………………………
      lets go!

      • bigharold - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:22 PM

        The climb back has just started!!!!!!!!!

      • proudlycanadian - Jul 28, 2013 at 3:23 PM

        To dream the impossible dream! To right the unrightable wrong! That is his quest! To follow that star. No matter how helpless, no matter how far!

      • bigharold - Jul 28, 2013 at 6:11 PM

        PC, .. are you referring to the BJays theme song??

  4. cackalackyank - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:22 PM

    Hopefully Matsui leaves a suitcase full of his 2009 postseason mojor near the bat rack…and it soaks in to the lightly worn bats stored there.

    • bigharold - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:24 PM

      “.. and it soaks in to the lightly worn bats stored there.”

      Apparently you are on to something.

      • cackalackyank - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:32 PM

        Damn, I hope so, cuz so far this year has been suckin.

  5. bigharold - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:22 PM

    One pitch one HR.

    • southofheaven81 - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:27 PM

      Goddamn, he knows how to carry a dramatic moment.

      • cackalackyank - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:32 PM

        Yep that’s why he’s the Captain.

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:44 PM

      Batting .400 I believe. Though still a few AB’s shy of qualifying for the title.

    • nbjays - Jul 29, 2013 at 8:29 AM

      Give him the MVP right now. Why wait until the end of the season?

  6. bosoxfan15 - Jul 28, 2013 at 1:35 PM

    He will pull a hammy running out a double play. The end is near for his breaking down body. Too bad, he is a class act.

  7. jayscarpa - Jul 28, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    After no HR for a right hand hitter since MAY, two today for the Yankees.

    Of course Hughes is sucking so some things never change,
