Derek Jeter has boot removed from ankle, still no timetable for return

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter donned a uniform at Yankees Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, but he’s not close to returning to action. The 38-year-old had the boot removed from his surgically repaired left ankle and played catch before the Yankees took on the New York Mets.

Derek JeterJeter re-fractured the ankle in spring training, after originally breaking it during last year’s postseason. Jeter had the boot removed last Friday and was recently cleared to throw. He is scheduled to undergo a CT scan sometime next week and hopes to be cleared for additional baseball activities, like swinging a bat.

The 13-time All-Star will turn 39 next month and there’s no timetable for his return. The Yankees have said he will be out at least until after the All-Star break in mid-July.

Jeter originally broke the ankle during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series last October. He was healed enough to take part in a few spring training games but has been inactive since March 23 when he re-fractured the bone. He was placed on the 60-day disabled list on April 27.

The team captain has been with the Yankees during the team’s last two homestands, and has to be pleased with how the Bronx Bombers are fairing. The Yankees are currently 30-22 and sit just one game back of the Boston Red Sox for first place in the American League East.

I’d be shocked if Jeter was back before the end of July, and actually expecting him to return to major league action before mid-August would be awful optimistic.
