Derek Jeter was removed from Saturday’s loss to the Red Sox with soreness in his surgically-repaired left ankle. A CT scan came back negative, but the veteran shortstop is going to be out for a little while.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday morning that Jeter’s ankle will be reevaluated after a few days of rest. There has been no talk of shutting the 39-year-old down for the remainder of the season.
Jeter has appeared in only 17 games this year for fourth-place New York and is batting just .190 with a .542 OPS in 73 plate appearances. Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop in Sunday’s series finale with the Red Sox, who have an 8.5-game lead in the American League East standings.
