The Yankees pulled Jeter in the sixth inning of Saturday's game against the Red Sox after he aggravated his ankle, which was surgically repaired in the offseason. Jeter had a CT scan on the area with the results coming back negative, which is a good sign for the team.
Dr. Robert Anderson, who performed Jeter's surgery in the offseason, will also see the results of the CT scan. Jeter has played in just 17 games this season as he has been on and off the disabled list. When he has been on the field, Jeter has not looked good at the plate or in the field, and has collected just 12 hits in 73 plate appearances.
As of Sunday, Manager Joe Girardi said that there has been no thought about shutting Jeter down for the season. However, the Yankees chances at a postseason berth are dwindling, and giving Jeter the remainder of the year off in hopes of a healthy 2014 may soon be an option.
