Derek Jeter went through basically the exact same workout that he went through yesterday. He did conditioning in the outfield, took batting practice with Francisco Cervelli, then took ground balls at shortstop; first on the infield grass and then on the dirt.
He will, as expected, DH in a minor league game this afternoon.
However, Jeter said he’s finished giving daily updates on the status of his ankle.
“I will not address how anything feels anymore,” he said. “It’s not broke. Some things you’ve got to work through, so it’s really pointless to sit here and say each and every day, ‘How’s it feel? Does it feel bad?’ It’s pointless. Some days are good, some days are bad, but you’ve got to work through it. So that’s what I’m going to do.”
“… I’ll save you guys time. You can go to Lakeland now.”
That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to skip watching Jeter take a few at-bats at the complex in favor of watching Andy Pettitte pitch against the Tigers.
