June 29 Return Doubtful For Jeter Due To Soreness In Calf

Derek Jeter threw again for a third straight day in Tampa, but felt soreness in his strained right calf, which made Brian Cashman come to the conclusion that a June 29 return for Jeter seriously doubtful. Ever since Jeter hurt his calf on June 13 he has not been cleared by team doctors to do anything other than throw and he will not be cleared until his calf heals.

“He can’t do anything with his legs.” Cashman stated in a press conference. When asked if he was being pessimistic about Jeter returning in time Cashman stated, “I can’t say that I’m pessimistic but he’s not ready yet. By the time frame we made the right decision by putting him on the DL .”

The Yankees have not ruled out a rehab assignment for Jeter which could delay Jeter’s return and his quest to 3,000 hits but Cashman will stay open to the idea if Jeter is ready to come back without an assignment. Brian Cashman was also asked about Jose Reyes and if he would go to the Yankees after his contract is up. Cashman denied wanting anything to do with Reyes since he already has Jeter.

“That’s just not going to happen. We have an everyday shortstop in Derek Jeter. And I think we have an everyday shortstop that could play for a lot of clubs in Eduardo Nunez. The Yankees don’t have a need now or in the future for a shortstop.”

In order for the Yankees to bring Jose Reyes to the Bronx, they would have to convince Jeter to move to another position such as left field something Cashman does not want to do. While the Yankees are doing fine without him so far, they will be more than ecstatic to get him back when he’s 100% healthy, it just doesn’t look like June 29 will be Jeter’s lucky day though.

  1. I want Jeter to come back 100% healthy, so give him all the time he needs.
    When he comes back they should leave Brett where he is…Lead-off…dump Jones! Chavez is almost ready to come back, let him play at 3rd and 1st, keep Dickerson as the 4th OF. Maybe even platoon Swisher and Dickerson…if Swisher has more trouble from the left side!
    Jeter could and would still get his 3,000 hits anywhere in the order, why mess up a good thing?
    Very good post Delia…again! 8)

    • I never want to see him play again! I want him gone for good! Where is the proverbial bus when I need it?

      Who wants to watch Jeter suck more? The only time Jeter does anything at the plate is in his first pa of the game leading off which is 53 pa. After those in his other 240 pa he hitting an amazing .208/.292/.292 which sucks beyond believing. RETIRE!!!!

      The dude can’t hit a reliever….a right handed pitcher….an at night if his life depended on it!
