Here’s the latest from The Associated Press down in Tampa, where the Yankees have a long list of players rehabbing. Still no mention of Derek Jeter hitting.
Speaking of Jeter, Brian Cashman shot down the idea of trading for Mets shortstop Jose Reyes. Cashman said the Yankees don’t have a need at shortstop, but he’s still on the lookout for a reliever. He indicated that Jeter would probably play in some minor league games before being activated. That means huge ticket sales for someone.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter threw for the third straight day Thursday as he rehabs a strained right calf muscle that landed him on the disabled list.
Jeter has been on the DL since July 14, putting his chase for 3,000 hits on hold. He was six shy of reaching the milestone when he was hurt during a game June 13 against Cleveland.
The Yankees’ captain has been working out at the team’s spring training complex. He could increase his on-the-field workout in the next couple days.
Also, right-hander Bartolo Colon and infielder Eric Chavez increased their onfield drills as they rehab injuries.
Colon, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, ran sprints in the outfield for the first time in addition to his third consecutive day of long toss. Chavez, out with a broken left foot, said he was fine after running from home to first around a half-dozen times.
