    Jeter re-fractures ankle; career in doubt

    Guys, Derek Jeter have suffered a major setback which may end his career.  The Yankees troubles keep growing.   Fat CC has lost velocity and Andy has a bad back.  Word is Rivera may retire mid-season to get off the sinking ship.

    Thats not quite accurate. The quote from Cashman was that Jeter is not coming back until sometime after the ASB. Nowhere was it mentioned that his career is being threatened.

    Rapid Reaction: Jeter out until July, at least

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman just told reporters that Derek Jeter has "a small crack" in the area where his left ankle was fractured last October. The crack was discovered by a CT scan after Jeter traveled to Charlotte, N.C., for an unscheduled visit to Dr. Robert Anderson, the ankle specialist who did the surgery to repair the injury.

    What it means: That the Yankees will be without their Captain and one of the three remaining members of their Core Four until after the All-Star break. It also means that barring a move, Eduardo Nunez will be the everyday shortstop for the next two months at least.

    What is likely to happen: You have to figure the Yankees will move Jeter to the 60-day DL to clear roster space and look to either acquire a competent backup infielder or promote someone from Triple-A. With Jeter out, Gil Velazquez got a lot of playing time in spring training and could be recalled. Ronnier Mustelier, who is still recovering in Tampa from a knee injury suffered in a collision with a railing in March, is almost certainly not an option at this point.

    What about Jeter's future: Good question. This almost certainly eliminates any possibility, however remote, of taking a shot at the all-time hit record, and raises serious questions about whether, at 39 by the time he comes back, Jeter can be an everyday shortstop ever again at the major-league level

    One thing about being an older player and that is recovery time from injuries.

    He needs to take it slow.

    Agreed .... I'm still taking it slow from the last injury.   I haven't retired yet.  Of course, the last time I threw a hard ball was about 10 years ago, when I was 47...

    Injuries are nothing to celebrate.
