Back to Business Yankees Clear Derek Jeter to Play

Derek Jeter has been cleared to play in a New York Yankees minor-league game this coming Saturday, the team announced today. The New York Yankees shortstop is scheduled to play no less than five innings for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in a game against Lehigh Valley.Jeter is working his way back from an ankle injury he suffered back on Oct. 13th. After surgery and a stint of rehab, he played five spring training games, where a new break was discovered on April 18th. As a result, he hasn’t played in a single game this season.Last season, before the all-star suffered the injury, he hit .316/.362/.429 (114 OPS+) while leading the majors in hits (216), plate appearances (740) and at-bats (683). So having Jeter back will definitely improve the lineup of the Yankees, if he gets back in to the swing of things.
