Breaking news: Jeter breaks ankle again

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Apr 18, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Derek Jeter has what Brian Cashman called a new, small fracture in the left ankle. Cashman said he’s out now until after the All-Star break.

Jeter made a visit to Dr. Robert Anderson — who did the original surgery Oct. 20 after the first break happened in Game 1 of the ALCS a week prior — in Charlotte, N.C., for a CT scan that showed the problem. Surgery is not in the forecast this time.

“This is a new injury,” Cashman said. “It’s not an unhealing of the previous injury.”

Jeter had been working out at the Yankees’ minor-league complex in Tampa, Fla., and it’s presumed the new break happened during that process.

Next week, the 38-year-old shortstop will make another visit to Anderson and is expected to address the media in New York.

    Heard the news today oh boy :( :( :(

  2. PacoDooley April 18th, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Wow, major setback. I hope Nunez can stay healthy and is ready to play a big role this year. I also wonder how this will affect Jeter and his contract situation after this season

  3. Zach S April 18th, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Oh damn. Damn damn damn. Damn damn damn. And damn.

    Sorry to bring this up, but shouldn’t have let him play last year once it got really bad.
    ______________________________________________________________________
    Wrong!
    Jeter was going to play until his ankle broke and that’s what happened.
    I don’t think he has any regrets with that choice.
    Easy to play Monday morning QB.
    I think you should take a step back and re-read what you wrote and then realize how misinformed your comment is.

    Players play for today. Managers manage for today.

  5. yankeefeminista April 18th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    SMH. They should have shut him down last year when he was essentially playing on one leg.

  6. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Best wishes to Jeter.

    He will come back, but another position should be considered, to maximize his options.

  7. yankeefeminista April 18th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    WTP, misinformed? Or am I allowed to voice my opinion which I also voiced at the time when it doesn’t agree with yours?

  8. Tyler April 18th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Awful news :(. Best wishes to Jeter. Win it for him.

  9. Doreen April 18th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    There is no “not let Derek play.” I think the Yankees did their best to rest him, considering that Jeter never tells them exactly how he’s feeling.

    I don’t see how he’s back at all, frankly. I was thinking All-Star break BEFORE this… :(

  10. blake April 18th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    This is what happens when you use a surgeon that’s hopped up on Cajun filet biscuits

    “There is no “not let Derek play.” I think the Yankees did their best to rest him, considering that Jeter never tells them exactly how he’s feeling.”

    If he was 7 years younger, there would or should be. At his age, he can decide for himself as long as he knew the risks.

  12. Locke April 18th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    I think Nunez will rise to the occasion and be an above average SS.

    Poor Jeter, hopefully he takes it easy and can get into some games this year.

  13. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    I like Nunez at SS a lot more than Overbay at 1B.

  14. blake April 18th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    Trade for Tulo

  15. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    “Trade for Tulo”

    They have to figure out their budget first, and it would also help to have their prospects move up.

    Tex will be back in a month or so most likely. If he re-injures himself, it’s time to move Youk to 1st full time and finally bring up Mustelier to play 3b FULL TIME. Or David Adams. I bet they are both up for the challenge.

  22. joeman April 18th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    they were going to have to get a SS sooner or later..the time has come, looks like they will also address that in the draft

  23. sunny615 April 18th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    time to make a trade for profar. Give em the farm… :-(

  24. luis April 18th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Blake,

    I know how you feel.. But unfortunately this injury ( the broken ankle he had in October ) is a lot more serious than the one Mo had…. If it took David Adams almost two years to return, how long would it take for a player of Jeter’s age?… Again, as sad as it may sound, I think Jeter may not return at all

  25. sunny615 April 18th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

As much as i want arod gone, mlb has made it personal and it couldnt possibly get more hypocritical.

  31. MTU April 18th, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    On the suckitude scale Jeter reinjuring his ankle is a 10.

    Unless, of course, you’re Eduardo Nunez.

    I hope Jeter gets an opportunity to go out in style.

    Or returns as the new Owner of the Yankees.

    Jeter is a grown man. He has earned his special privileges. If he told the team and the doctors he was well enough to play, then of course he is going to take the field.
    There are no “what ifs” here.

  35. joeman April 18th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    really don’t know how someone could fracture their ankle in Oct of 12 and have surgery on it and expect him to come 6 months later and play ay !00% it just don’t happen…he should have been out at least a year

  36. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    So if Jeter plays in 2014, he isn’t opting out and would accept the player option which would be? (JF?)

    I’ve always liked ARod and seen him as a sympathetic character. As I see it he probably won’t be able to play at a high level again. Between MLB and the Yankees front office I think it is possible that he won’t play for us again. I’d rather him go out with an injury rather then the embarrassment of PED (again) or for buying the BioGen documents.

    For once the Yankees need to give someone we already have a real chance. Nunez is our SS now as long as he stays healthy. It’s tempting to call for them to trade for Tulo, but I’d rather see what we have in Nunez.

  41. Mike in Harrisburg April 18th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Best we can hope is that Nunez revels with this increased job security. If he’s passable I think he gets the lion’s share of SS even after the ASB.

  42. blake April 18th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    “Cajun filet biscuits? The doc was from the Carolina’s not Louisiana. More likely he was fueled by ribs and hush puppies!”

    Plenty of Bojangles in Charlotte…..and Carolina is more pulled pork than ribs…. We make ribs but it’s not our speciality

    Honestly, as much as I love Mariano and everyone in baseball loves Mariano, it is Derek Jeter who embodies the spirit of the game of baseball more than any other. He is a true sports hero and people all over baseball have to upset to hear this news. I hope he can make it back on the field this year, but I am not optimistic about his chances. I get the feeling he’s really destroyed his ankle. Let’s hope he can at least play next year. I refuse to believe we’ve seen the last of him.

  49. Mike in Harrisburg April 18th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    You know what, I have to say for replacement purposes, this is going to be easier on Nunez than if he or anyone else was taking over for Jeter to start a season after he retired on top. Expectations far less astronomical.

    —————————————————————–

    I really think trading for Tulo sets the Yanks back farther than simply sticking with Nunez. Tulo empties the system which is going to be huge as soon as next year with the budget. Just ride this out… they are doing fine with Nunez early on here and have done alright with him in the past.

    The Yanks will either stick with Nunez or go out and get somebody (assuming Culver doesn’t pan out). Figure a drafted SS takes 3 years minimum. It will take a while to see him in the bigs.

  58. MTU April 18th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Joeman-

    Don’t think so. From what I can remember Joba’s was a compound fracture. Not much worse than that.

    What if newborn Brian Cashman had been placed in a basket and floated down the Nile and then was adopted and raised to be the next Pharaoh of Egypt? Would Jeter be healthy today? Or would Prince of Egypt Brian Cashman still fulfill his true destiny to someday run the Yankees and rankle their fans with his assorted follies?

    He did nothing wrong by playing in the ALCS, despite having a bum ankle.
    Unfair to ask that he would take himself out of the playoffs in order to save himself
    for 2013.
    Games are played for today, not for tomorrow or the next season. At least that’s not
    the Yankees way.

  61. fantasygame101 April 18th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Asdrubal cabera could be cheaper than tulo but nunez handling ss and hitting is more preferable.

  62. joeman April 18th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    not to many teams trade away good SS unless they are the Marlins

  63. yankeefeminista April 18th, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    Culver is years away: if we are thinking that far in the future, Avelino might also be on the radar. As for now, Nunie will have to excel.

  64. Mike in Harrisburg April 18th, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Joba is ten years younger than Jeter. I think that makes a real difference when you are pressing to come back from a broken bone.

  65. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Cashman says he’s coming back.

  66. J. Alfred Prufrock April 18th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Yankeefem – you and I have seen enough of Jeter live to know when he pulls up “lame” even though he just shrugs it off and keeps on ticking. I said a few times in here last year that he needed more breaks that all that ticking could prove to be a time bomb . Yes hes stubborn but the mgr has got to protect a player and consider the haul , the importance of the player to long term goals. The player’s advancing age and also he needs to have a feel for when the player’s hurting even when the player is a stoic like Jeter. He needed to be treated accordingly to the above criteria and they did not do that with him.

  67. yankeefeminista April 18th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    WTP, I wasn’t talking about in the playoffs. He was injured long before that. And of course it is about Jeter, who else? So lose the derision.

  71. Tyler April 18th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Cabrera was pretty horrible in the 2nd half last year and is off to a really slow start this year. He’s great with the glove though. I’d keep Nunez over giving up prospects

  72. charlestonchew April 18th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Nunez is fine for a couple years at SS. We’ve already seen that we can get offense from aging DHs like Hafner and Ibanez, get big performances out of veterans like Eric Chavez, Youkilis, and Wells. And we can even make a solid bench with guys like Boesch and the versatile (though offensively inept) Nix. I think the Yankees will be smart and call up Mustelier or Adams (or hell, even Romine) in the next month or so, depending on who is healthy and producing.

  73. MTU April 18th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Of course. But Joba still has remarkable healing powers IMO.

  74. MTU April 18th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Joeman-

    He was Pitching w a torn elbow tendon requiring TJS and didn’t even complain.

    That was pretty freaking crazy. That has to be incredibly painful.

    Imagine snapping off sliders w that.

    Unbelieveable.

    Hard to argue with this logic. Nunez must be given a chance.
    Plus, don’t you think the other GM’s will hold Cashman to the fire and make ridiculous
    demands knowing that Jeter is out until after the all-star game? Even if Cash wants to make a trade, it might not be in the teams best interest based on what teams want in exchange
    for an average/marginal SS

  79. Captain Clutch April 18th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    If Nunez shows that he can’t handle SS everyday they are really in trouble. Nix obviously isn’t an answer since he can’t field or hit. They really have to hope that Nunez really steps up and does a good job. Cashman would get robbed if he had to trade for someone.

    Don’t think so. From what I can remember Joba’s was a compound fracture. Not much worse than that.

    Maybe I’m misremembering, but didn’t Nunez do really well for that stretch back in June/July 2011 when Jeter was out before he came back for #3000? Maybe Nunie was playing way over his head, but he has it in him to be a solid contributor.

    He just can’t be Derek Jeter.

    Just heard the news about Jeter on the radio.

    What a shame.

    He’s not only a great, great player, he’s a true gamer, the Yankees had no chance to get him to sit out at the end of last year unless they put him on the disabled list.

    Great, iconic players rarely go out in a blaze of glory, it’s either a significant decline in ability or a serious injury.

    I’m hopeful that he can come all the way back from this second fracture but the reality is that he may not.

    It would seem to me that Jeet is the kind of player who would walk away before playing at anything less than his full ability.

    If we’ve seen the last of Jeet as shortstop or on the field for the Yankees he is the next in line of great Yankees from the Babe, the Iron Horse, Joe D, and the Mick..

  90. comnsnse April 18th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    Warning track power, Re: Feminista quote.

    Absolutely on the money comment, Jeter is a gamer the greatest SS in Yankee history first ballot HOF’r and as everyone should know will not and does not allow anyone to make his decisions.

    He’s also a smart guy who should be the next Yankee GM, and would like to be in the top 5 all time in number of hits.

    Do not dismiss the longer term possibility that he becomes the full time DH.

    Think Molitor……..maybe he could be the GM and DH at the same time, after all we’ve had player/mgrs.! ;)

    Wow, bad news regarding Jeter.

    We’re lucky that Nuney is doing a very credible job and appears to be getting better at defense with regular playing time.

    Want Jeter back, but not until he is 100% totally healthy. It doesn’t help anyone the other way.

  101. MG April 18th, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    Nix isn’t a great option at 3rd base on a regular basis but he’s already made two significant contributions to the team this year-the HR against Verlander that got the Yankees off to a good start in the game that seems to have turned the season around and the bases loaded walk that scored the 1st run last night.

    With Jeet being down for the long term I would guess they adjust the roster pretty soon and get another infielder up instead of Francisco.

    It would have to be either Adams or Mustelier (if he can get back on the field) unless they pick up a major leaguer in a trade-I would think they would go prospect but who knows…

  102. GregD April 18th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Good afternoon

    This is not exactly good news. Jeter is the captain, the flesh, bone and spirit of this team. Not to speak about his bat.

    Trying to be as cold as I can, if the fracture was detected only by CT, is not exactly big. It must be an incomplete fracture. That means it won’t be career-threatening. Of course, I don’t have details, but that should be the case. It’s still a fracture, it means muscular atrophy, and will need rest and physical therapy, but he’ll be fine. Despite his age.

    ///

    LOL he doesn’t have that kind of pull with the Stein boys. Madden said Hal “hates the players.”

    I know all about how stubborn Jeter is, I also can see right away when he’s favoring a leg or hurting. When you watch these guys live on a near daily basis, you become aware of these things. There were games in June and July where Jeter should have been rested and wasn’t. Especially when you could see him having trouble getting down the line and that sort of thing. Yeah we can chuckle with admiration that Derek Jeter never takes a day off, but the manager needs to grow a pair and explain that we need a healthy Derek to win anything important.

    Now, I’m not saying this caused his injury, but I am saying that these things are cumulative, and the signs were there that he was wearing down and they didn’t heed those signs. He’s 38 years old – figure it out, Joe.

    YOu say “Jete, we’ve got to rest you a little more.” He’d have gotten over it.

  138. bigdan22 April 18th, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    As I’ve pointed out many times, the whole Jeter affair has really been fortuitous for the Yanks. It allows them to essentially retire an icon without all the awkwardness of contract squabbles and the like. And Nunez appears as ready as he’ll ever be. They absolutely must try to upgrade the utility infielder spot though asap.

    Still it’s a very sad day. Especially for Derek. If I were he I just go someplace quiet and take the year off to get my head and body right. I think with his make-up, he can come back from this. Not as a ft shortstop. That shipped sailed last October. But in some capacity. He and the Yanks should get together and figure out a role that he can play next year that will allow him to retire in a manner similar to Mo.

    I guess Pete Rose is happy.

    Yanks will get Tex and Granderson back (at least they have to plan right now as if they will.)

    The one glaring need, to me, is a utility guy that is better than Nix.

    Nunez might be good enough if his defense holds up. They’ve been built to win on pitching anyway.

    They just need a guy who can play solid defense at SS and 3B and hit better than what they have now. They can probably find that without giving up anything too good.

    Let us all hope Jeter will recover and play well again. I utterly hate thinking otherwise. As a model in every way regular player, at shortstop and at the top of the lineup, he has been the face of the franchise for over 15 years. We have been privileged, but I would like more please.

    I’m glad Romine is okay. He has had enough hardships.

    But, what a bummer about Derek.

    The team needs to wrap Nunez in bubble wrap. It gets very ugly beyond him. Nix is not a regular player. Beyond Nix are journeymen.

    Terrible news about Jeter. Nunez will now play a longer stretch than he ever has. We’ll know if he can do the job finally. He has great speed { and hustle }, very good arm, & range, but the jury is still out on his putting it all together. May be a hitter, may not be. We’ll see. JMO

    It’s good to see that the spare parts we picked up are doing mostly quite well. ( Francisco prolly won’t last long )
    Can it last through the season, can our starting pitching hold up ?

    I, for one, predicted the Yanks would not win the div. this year, still think that, and it could be a couple yrs. before we get back on track because of the $ 189 thing.

    No young position player is ready to be a big help right now. Musty should come up when healthy. The guy looks like a pretty good hitter with some pop.

    As I said, it may be 2 yrs. or more before we see the YS “Bombers” back in action.

  164. blake April 18th, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    “especially since Joe D. won more rings than Mantle”

    It’s very difficult…..you could Gehrig off because he played the same time as Ruth and just go with Ruth, DiMaggio, mantle, Jeter to represent the cornerstones of the 4 main titles winning teams…..I think Ruth is the only lock if you’re only going with 4

    Pitchers…..love Mo but he has played in like 20,000+ fewer innings for the Yankees than Jeter has….think about that

    I think Teddy deserved his spot much like Rivera. Both saved us from from the robber baron offensive types.

    So I’ll keep posting as long as I can guys

    ..I think Ruth is the only lock if you’re only going with 4
    ========================
    Sorry. If it’s only 4 then Jete has to be left off, as well as Yogi.
    That is already written in stone.

  170. champ809 April 18th, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Thinking about it I think they only way to do it would be to have 1 representative of each era of Yankee greatness making it Ruth, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jeter….Ruth is the face of the 1st great Yankee dynasty as much as Gehrig was the rock of that team tha Babe was the man as was Joe D, tha Mick and Jeet were for their dynastic teams.

  171. mick April 18th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    numerically it was written:
    3-4-5-(6)7…..2 and 8 come before and after.

    “Thinking about it I think they only way to do it would be to have 1 representative of each era of Yankee greatness making it Ruth, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jeter”

    Yea….Gehrig may have been the best hitter off all of them too though so it’s tough….I wouldn’t want to have to make that decision

    Definitely need two mountains —–

    Mount Rushmore — Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, Jeter

    Mount Rushless —- DiMaggio, Ford, Berra, Rivera

  177. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    I think you need a representative from the ’70s era.

  178. blake April 18th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    The 4 presidents on Mt Rushmore aren’t necessarily the 4 best presidents…..it’s subjective and it’s a symbolic monument ….

  179. jmv April 18th, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Nothing is written in stone at LoHud’s.

    A couple years ago, Jeter was washed up. Today, everyone begs for his return

    Has anybody seen the numbers of Red Ruffing, both hitting and pitching?
    He and Dickey would be 9 and 10 all time Yanks.

    Joe D might be the greatest Yankee of all time as an all around player, he missed his 3 prime years because of WWII.

    My dad saw the Babe, Lou, and Joe D play in person and always raved about Joe D, he may not have been the nicest person in the world but a truly great ball player.

  186. Don April 18th, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Probably Jeter rushed his return from last year’s injury and that is why he injured it again. He should be very cautious this time, and let’s hope for the best.

  187. MTU April 18th, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Enjoy the game folks.

    Catch you later.

  188. blake April 18th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Jeter is the face of an era that brought 5 titles (so far) and 15 playoff births in 16 years…..for a symbolic think like a Mt. Rushmore that era would have to be represented IMO.

    “Joe D might be the greatest Yankee of all time as an all around player, he missed his 3 prime years because of WWII.”

    Could have….it’s really hard to compare because of the eras….to me there are really 6 deserving guys if you needed to get it down to 4 (Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra, Jeter)

  194. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    blake

    If the issue is a representative in each era of Yankee greatness:

    Munson. 116 OPS+ is pretty good for a C, and he was pretty high on the intangibles spectrum.

    Great Yankees in a vacuum, no, he’s not there.

  195. mick April 18th, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    What they should do is add 2 prez to Mt Rushmore to set the precedent.(president)

    If we are ranking the 10 best ….then that’s a good list.

    Gehrig always takes a back seat to Ruth but his numbers are just insane when you look at them…..I wonder if you could poll pitchers from that era…. Which guy they feared more

  197. blake April 18th, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Yea Munson is the face of that era I think too

  198. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    There’s Ruth, and then there’s everyone else.

  203. luis April 18th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    After those the thing gets a little more harder

    11 Posada, 12 Pettitte, 13 Mattingly, 14 Munson, 15 Bernie, 16 Howard, 17 Rizzuto, 18 Guidry, 19 O’neal ( for me he is a true Yankee )

  204. Rich in NJ April 18th, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    You’re right, blake, but for Ruth, Gehrig would be viewed through a slightly different lens.

    Walt Disney After attending the Kansas City Art Institute, the beloved animator opened Laugh O Gram Studio, his first, on the corner of 31st Street and Forest Avenue in Kansas City. Disney fed a friendly rodent in the building, which was said to have inspired the character Mickey Mouse. The building has since fallen to almost complete ruin; a group is currently working to restore it and build a museum on the site. Fans also can visit his childhood home and farm just 125 miles east of Kansas City in Marceline, Mo.
