The Yankees could activate shortstop Derek Jeter from the 15-day disabled list on Monday, reports MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. The 39-year-old has been on the disabled list since August 3 with a strained right groin, his third stint on the DL this year already.
Jeter missed the first 91 games of the season recovering from the broken ankle suffered during the post-season last year. After his season debut on July 11, he went back on the DL with a strained right quadriceps. Jeter played in four more games, then went back on the DL with the strained right groin. In 21 trips to the plate, he is hitting .211 with one home run.
The Yankees open a three-game set on the road against the Blue Jays Monday. If Jeter returns then, he would be scheduled to face Jays starter R.A. Dickey.
