Yankees SS Jeter done for year with ankle injury
BALTIMORE (AP) — Derek Jeter began the season on the disabled list, just like it will end.
The New York Yankees shortstop will miss the rest of the season after being placed on the disabled list Wednesday with an ankle injury.
Jeter, 39, played Saturday against Boston. He was removed for a pinch runner after hurting his left ankle. Although a CT scan was negative, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the injury will need significant time to heal.
“You have to let the pain dissipate and then give it a chance to let the ankle strengthen back up,” Cashman said. “We’re just not going to have the time to do that in any capacity right now. It puts him in a vulnerable situation and risks re-injury. That’s not something we are willing to do.”
Jeter started the year on the disabled list after breaking his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He returned to the DL twice more and played in only 17 games, batting .190 with one homer and seven RBIs. And now, he’s been shelved for a fourth time.
“This entire season has been a nightmare for me physically,” Jeter said. “It’s a fitting end.”
