Derek Jeter gets cortisone shot in ankle; opening day in doubt
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter received a cortisone shot in his left ankle, and his presence in the opening day lineup is in doubt. Should Jeter be forced to start the season on the disabled list, Eduardo Nunez will serve as the everyday shortstop.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter received a cortisone shot in his left ankle, and his presence in the opening day lineup is in doubt, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Should Jeter be forced to start the season on the disabled list, Eduardo Nunez will serve as the everyday shortstop.
Jeter fractured his ankle during last season's ALCS and had surgery to repair it on Oct. 20. He has been able to accrue 12 plate appearances this spring but has continued to have issues with the injury.
And the Yankees' spring of horrors continues. Instead of an opening-day infield of Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, it's possible the Yankees will line up from first to third with Juan Rivera, Cano, Nunez and Kevin Youkilis. And that's without mentioning outfielder Curtis Granderson and his broken arm.
