In both cases, the teams are handling their players with care. Cashman emphasized that it’s not about getting ready for Opening Day with Jeter. The same is true for Ortiz.
“Opening Day is not in the scope of treatment in this case,” Cashman said. “We’re just doing what’s best for him. Treat this injury and get it behind him as soon as possible.
“It’s pretty remarkable he’s doing what he’s doing but he is, as we know, a remarkable individual regardless. Because of who he is, I can’t rule anything out.”
