Breaking news: Jeter breaks ankle again

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.
