Jeter cleared by the doctor, but still waiting to play

Derek Jeter couldn’t remember the last time he’d been to see Dr. Robert Anderson, but it was definitely before spring training; maybe a week or two before. What Jeter does remember is that his ankle wasn’t fully healed the last time he saw the doctor. When Jeter saw Dr. Anderson yesterday, the healing process was complete.

“It’s always reassuring when someone says something that’s broke is not broke any more,” Jeter said. “Now it’s just getting through the normal aches and pains that come around it. As long as you know the break has healed, then the aches and pains, that goes away on its own.”

Jeter said Dr. Anderson gave him clearance for full activity, but during today’s workout, that clearance didn’t change anything. Jeter went through the same sort of drills he’s been doing for a few weeks, which did not include running the bases at full speed.

“It could be tomorrow; it could be the next day,” Jeter said. “But I don’t think I have to run them full speed before I play. If you go back to spring trainings of the past, I don’t think anyone is running the bases at full speed before the first game. As long as I can get around, that’s fine.”

Previously, Jeter had indicated that running the bases at full speed would be a fairly significant milestone, but today he downplayed the importance.

“I’ll give you the same answer I gave the other day,” Jeter said. “As soon as I’m able to play, I’ll play. I haven’t talked to Girardi. They’ve been gone. Stevie (Donohue) has been gone too. I’m sure I’ll talk to them at some point tomorrow. We’ll see. As soon as I can play, I’ll play.”

    Warren getting batted around a bit.

  2. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    Mustelier doesn’t look bad in the outfield. Just made a nice running grab on a hard liner.

  3. jacksquat March 8th, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    Nice catch by Mustelier in RF.

  4. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    So a groin injury for Arsmada? Ugh, there goes Sherman’s trade idea.

  5. G. Love March 8th, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    The sooner we get Jeter back in the field the better. The team needs to know what he’s capable of. If he looks solid in the field, you may want to consider trading Nunie (ugh) for a corner IF/OF since you have Nix as a backup already on the roster.

    I wonder what a Nunez/Warren package could net us.

    And my new obsession is 24yo Milwaukee 1b prospect Hunter Morris who if Corey Hart & Mat Gamel weren’t both injured we’d probably have a shot at getting since he was blocked. LH hitter with HR power and 2b’s power (hit 40 2b’s and 28HR’s at AA last year). Milwaukee is so thin in the rotation if those other 2 guys were healthy I bet we could trade some starting pitching for him. He’s probably going to be forced to start at 1b this season while the other guys recover.

    Mesa had a very nice at bat lining a 2-2 slider at the knees and away over the second baseman’s head. That impressed me.

    Melky will be our Opening Day CF.

    Another sign that indeed it’s a retirement announcement forth coming tomorrow.

  12. Deal With It March 8th, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    Tackelberry March 8th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    It’s not my ‘word’, strictly an opinion.

    This team started sliding a couple of years ago with too many aging players, made the post season but has had trouble advancing. Now that ‘age’ is catching up even quicker with declining players and injuries.

  13. Rich in NJ March 8th, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    “Another sign that indeed it’s a retirement announcement forth coming tomorrow.”

    Is anyone really doubting that?

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 8th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    Are you guys watching this on mlb.com?

  15. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    I dont know if anyone else saw the Japan-Taiwan game, but Wang’s velocity was 89-90. At that velocity he would be a great pickup.

  16. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 8th, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    I wonder if any of the sports networks will carry tomorrow’s events, other than YES. I haven’t re-activated DTV yet and didn’t want to do it until the beginning of the season. However, if nobody else is carrying it, I will bite the bullet and do it today.

  17. tomingeorgia March 8th, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    Trisha,
    I am.

  18. Rich in NJ March 8th, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    I’m pro-Wang.

  19. Doreen March 8th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    It’s not like thy didn’t have trouble advancing in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Not to mention 2002.

  20. UnKnown March 8th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    “Is anyone really doubting that?”

    I am trying to find anything I can to convince myself that MO won’t be announcing his retirement, but so far I am coming up empty.

  21. Rich in NJ March 8th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    OK, I hear you.

  22. Deal With It March 8th, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    More like after 2009 is what I was referring too, sorry if i was unclear.

  23. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 8th, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    Thanks tom.

  24. blake March 8th, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    sign Wang….if it’s a minor league deal then its a no brainer

  25. tomingeorgia March 8th, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    trisha,
    Without MLB.com I’d be lost out here in East Nowhere. I get Braves games on cable, but the ability to watch ANY game, ANY time is priceless. O brave new world!

    blake March 8th, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    ——————–

    Agreed.

    Though I’m watching Canada vs. Italy, it’s pretty easy to see the difference between the major leaguers and the guys who aren’t.

  27. Chip March 8th, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    I would sign CM Wang and then deal Phil Hughes or Ivan Nova, but preferably Hughes. He’s a FA at the end of the year; you have Phelps behind him and Wang as a very nice insurance policy.

  28. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    I think with the way he’s pitched Wang might end up with a big league deal…

  29. Chip March 8th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    ————–

    Texas might be interested given their injury situation. Cheaper than Lohse and doesn’t require the draft pick.

  30. Rich in NJ March 8th, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    They can’t trade Hughes until he proves he’s healthy. Apart from that, unless they are blown away with an important, cost-controlled offensive piece, they may think he is too dependable (compared to Nova and Phelps) to risk losing given how bad their offense could be for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

  31. Chip March 8th, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    A couple of thoughts:

    Baseball Tonight has become crap. Their “insiders” are so full of nonsense and their team of analysts…well when Curt Schilling is your best guy that’s all you need to know. MLB Network crushes them.

    Listening to Jim Kaat work Canada/Italy – I miss the guy. I always hated the way he kept lamenting for the game to go back to being the way it was when he played, but he’s a no BS guy too and I appreciate that.

  32. Against All Odds March 8th, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    I don’t even remember the last time I watch BBTN. MLB Network has done a fine job since they debuted

  33. Chip March 8th, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    According to MLB Trade Rumors St. Louis hasn’t been thrilled with Ronny Cedeno’s performance this spring. I would work something out with them for him. He’s an upgrade offensively from Jayson Nix and defensively from Eduardo Nunez.

  34. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Team Italy is going to the semi-finals holy crap

  35. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 8th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    VIVA ITALIA, right Shame?

  36. randy l. March 8th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    jerkface-

    if wang throwing the sinker 89-90 ?

    what kind of pitcher is he now?

  37. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    Sinker was that fast, so now he is a normal mortal sinkerballer instead of the immortal sinker baller with the 92-95 mph bowling ball.

  38. Against All Odds March 8th, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    watched*

  39. 4 NYY March 8th, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Wasn’t wang clocked at 82 in his first start ?

  40. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    Wasn’t wang clocked at 82 in his first start ?

    He was 79-85 with all of his pitches on the taiwanese stadium gun, but that gun didn’t fire every time so I dont know if it was really accurate.

    He was 87-91 on the japanese stadium gun with the sinker, which I think holds more weight.

  41. Hassey March 8th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    I turn my back for one second, and when I come back all of youse guys are talking about a Wang?

  42. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    And he averaged 90 mph on the pitch last year in the majors.

  43. Hassey March 8th, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Is he the same guy that owns the Islanders?

  44. blake March 8th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    “Baseball Tonight has become crap. Their “insiders” are so full of nonsense and their team of analysts…well when Curt Schilling is your best guy that’s all you need to know. MLB Network crushes them.”

    it’s been probably 2 years since i’ve watched baseball tonight

  45. blake March 8th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    “Team Italy is going to the semi-finals holy crap”

    Shouldn’t we call them team American’s that are Italian?

  46. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Tin Cup….Hard to believe that it was 4 years ago that we watched in horror the dismantling of Cing Ming Wang…….I can understand ( to a degree ) Hal’s desire to get the Yanks fianancial house in order if their plan was more than just saving dough. I mean they’re just patch working the club with no clear vision for two years from now. If they were plannig to re-tool the organization in conjunction to getting fit budget wise well then there’s a plan to get behind…..They’ve been trying to stay in the playoff hunt and rebuild since 2008 with very mixed reviews. As for Holliday, what I clearly remember from the 2009 offseason was if you made a case for signing him there was 100 posts about his Coors Field / Oakland Alemeda stats. He would be a steal right now…..

  48. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    MLB Network is a 100xs better than anything ESPN has to offer. That debate on ESPN the other day about who would win a game between the Heat and Blackhawks was one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen (and I spend most of my day in here!).

    Anyway… does anyone wanna dumb down the WBC situation for me. I wish LGY was here to give us a playoff schedule :D

  49. randy l. March 8th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    that’s pretty good , especially if he can add a few mph to it.

    last summer, i was talking with a friend who is an official scorer for a lot of oriole games. he also goes to a lot of national’s games because his wife is a die hard nationals fan. he knows steve McCatty , the pitching coach, fairy well. my friend asked him what he thought about the things neil allen did with wang with his sinker. allen emphasized a short stride length for wang and said that wang constantly had to be tuned up because his stride would get too long for the sinker.
    my friend told me that McCatty told him respectively that he didn’t pay much attention to stride length with wang. so wang has gotten a lot of different coaching over the past few years, and all of it isn’t the same.

    i wonder what would happen if wang went back and did exactly what allowed him to have the dominant sinker in the first place. you’d think it would be a natural for the rays to take a chance with wang with allen there, but obviously they’ve passed on him.

    wang was a traditional fastball, slider, change up guy before allen got a hold of him and taught him the sinker. that’s why i was wondering if wang was still throwing the sinker. he actually can pitch without it. i like the guy. hopefully he’s healthy and can restart his career.

  50. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    Cuba and Japan have advanced and so have the Netherlands (whoa) and… Chinese Taipei…? Is that right?

  51. blake March 8th, 2013 at 3:38 pm

    I haven’t watched ESPN at all in a long time unless there is an actual game on that I want to see……their regular programming has essentially become unwatchable….

  52. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    And Italy just had to win two games (one against Canada and the other against Mexico) to advance…?

  53. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Wang is insanely popular in Taiwan. I remember reading a story about how people would leave baseballs in his mailbox for him to sign and he’d do it and put them back out there or something.

  54. randy l. March 8th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    “I turn my back for one second, and when I come back all of youse guys are talking about a Wang?”

    we have lots of tricks up our sleeves.

    we could change to montero in a nano second.

    you don’t even have to turn around :)

  55. ron March 8th, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    Not big on reunions like vazquez,wang,pavano,etc…

    Padres listening on headley.

    Yankees need to get involved.
    We have no 3b in our system,so headley would be perfect.
    Then slide youk over to 1b.

    Nunez,nix,johnson,rivera,etc…,are bench players,and are not good substitutes for our injured players.
    Maybe a heathcott,or sanchez lead package along with warren,or betances gets it done.

    Make it happen cashman.

  56. Shame Spencer March 8th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    —————–

    Fox’s sports station should be interesting.. with NBC and Fox in on it, I wonder if we’ll see some changes over at ESPN where they’ve had the advantage of sitting in the lone seat at the table for a long time.

  57. Sir Harden Thick March 8th, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    the Yankees offense has scored the least runs in all of the grape fruit league. The Yankees have no hitting in the majors and minors leagues.they need to make a move now or it’s going to be way too late

  58. randy l. March 8th, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    montero is hitting .412 with an 1.238 OPS by the way :)

    thanks for asking.

    zunino is only hitting.238.

    maybe the yankees could work something out there :)

  59. FiretheUMPIRE March 8th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Ron the Padres specifically said they are NOT listening on Headley. But he’s a good trade deadline target. Hopefully some of the farmhands will have bolstered their value by then.

  60. blake March 8th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    The Padres won’t trade Headley now….they need to sell tickets….they’ll move him at the deadline

  61. randy l. March 8th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    pat m-

    i don’t even know where to begin with what hal is doing to the yankees.

    that article you sent said it all. i think we all could get behind it if they blew it all up and started over, but this wishy washy 189 thing is all over the charts. it’s not going to work.

    it’s hard to believe so much time has passed since that night you, me, cb and others were talking about the strange release point wang had in that spring training game. good times on the blog back then.

  62. FiretheUMPIRE March 8th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    If Tex is out for the year, Headley plays 3rd and Youk plays 1st. Then Arod comes back next year and DH’s. I wonder if they would be interested in Jose Ramirez and Slade Heathcott.

  63. ron March 8th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    •The Padres are starting to listen to offers for Chase Headley, Bill Madden of the New York Daily News reports. The Padres tabled extension talks with Headley earlier this winter after the two sides were far apart on terms. The third baseman is under contract through the 2014 season and Madden argues that the Yankees should make a move for a young star like Headley or Giancarlo Stanton in order to bolster the lineup and ensure the team will contend this year.

    If they are then we should be right in the middle of it.

  64. Jerkface March 8th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Anyway… does anyone wanna dumb down the WBC situation for me. I wish LGY was here to give us a playoff schedule

    Right now Pool C and D are playing in the first round. So the top 2 teams advance by record, with ties handled vie tie breakers based on direct head to head and runs scored/allowed etc.

    Italy with 2 wins is a near lock to advance, because they will have beaten the 2 teams challenging them for the spot (Canada/Mexico) so they win head to head tie breakers. It will only get tricky if USA loses 1 and to who.

    Pool A and B (Cuba/Japan, Netherlands/Taiwan) are in the semi-finals. A and B are playing each other. Winner of Pool A vs Runner up of Pool B and vice versa.

    Cuba vs Netherlands
    Japan vs Taiwan

    Next is

    Winner vs Winner (Netherlands/Japan)
    Loser vs Loser (Taiwan/Cuba)

    Loser of the LvL match is eliminated, Winner of the WvW match gets a bye. Then the loser of the WvW match fights the winner of the loser game. Loser of that gets eliminated, winner faces the bye team. The bye team is automatically advanced to the championship game, the match just determines seeding.

    Same thing happens with pool C and D.

    Then the 1st place teams face the 2nd place teams of their opposing combined pools (so say Cuba vs USA and Japan vs Dominican Republic), and the winner of those games are in the finals. I guess.
