Derek Jeter hasn’t been cleared to run yet

There’s no timetable for Derek Jeter‘s return from the disabled list because, as Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports, the Yankees shortstop has not been cleared to resume running yet.

Jeter has been on the disabled list since August 3 with a strained right calf and has progressed enough to take batting practice and field ground balls, but Feinsand speculates that he won’t return before Friday at the earliest.

Jeter missed the first 91 games of the season, played one game before getting hurt again, and then played just four games after that before landing back on the DL. Jeter and Alex Rodriguez have not been in the same lineup together since the 2012 playoffs.

    Interesting. So if a loose grizzly bear shows up in his presence, he’s only allowed to walk away from it?

      If I remember my adventure books from when I was younger correctly, all Jeter had to do is play dead. Here’s hoping he and I read the same books…

      I depends on if that grizzly is A-Looser than your average grizzly….if it is, he’s in trouble regardless.

        ah, I see what you did….

      they don’t have grizzly bears in the Bronx.
      but if they did I got Jetes.

    Dislike the yankees as much as anyone but its sad to see a great career fizzle out.

      I don’t think it’s fizzling out. He hurt himself…it’s too early to say if this portends endless future injuries that will eventually drive him out of the game.

      Yeah, it’s highly worrying given his age but, knowing Jeter, he could easily bounce back and have a great year next season.

    Where are all the accusations about the Yanks mishandling Jeter’s injury?

    • Morning Star - Aug 19, 2013 at 1:06 PM

      Given his status as a Yankee legend, Jeter probably had as much to say about his recovery and return as did the team doctors.

      If he were in his 20’s or early 30’s more ‘flags’ would be raised. He’s at an advanced age for ANY athlete (and no, golfing and automobile racing are NOT sports).

      Jeter is just…old.

        Sports and athletics are not the same. Many sporting events do not require participants to be particularly athletic.

    This man has no will to run.

    • fanofevilempire - Aug 19, 2013 at 2:56 PM

      he’s no Forrest Gump.

    Why the hell isn’t he taking HGH and roids and deer antler spray and EPO and amphetamines and stuff to get back on the field? Why isn’t he blood doping? Doesn’t he give a crap about his teammates? Doesn’t he realize they need him?

    As a Sox fan, I can say I miss seeing Derek Jeter play ball. I admire the Yankees and have followed their “core” players throughout their careers. Jeter, Posada, Pettite, Bernie Williams, and Mariano. Never hated them but didn’t wish them well when they played the Sox :-)
