well Yogi, looks like you're gonna get your 500 AB's for Nunez wish.

And now this:

Steve Berthiaume @BertDbacks

#Yankees say CT scan shows new crack Derek Jeter's injured ankle. Brian Cashman
calls it "setback." Jeter out until at least AllStar break.

This is from trying to do too much too soon. Right?

4 Greg G   ~  Apr 18, 2013 3:30 pm

Jeter will bring it in the 2nd half, and now Nunez can gain some confidence for a bit. Not the end of the world, but not great either.

in all honesty, on-the-field at least, I think this hurts them less than a Granderson or Teixeira setback would

Never can control how it ends. Not to say he won't play again but the end is often just so, uncertain, and painful.

[7] So, this could be one of those Bo Jackson things? Just too bad an injury to allow high-level play again... You're freakin me out, man.

10 Greg G   ~  Apr 18, 2013 3:46 pm

I guess this means he takes the player option for next year, unless he has a super amazing 2nd half, and maybe even then too?

[8] With all the respect in the world for both Jeter and your sentiments today, I prefer to save that one for #15.

So, uhh...Knicks/Celts this weekend.

From ESPN:

"Cashman said Jeter will not need another surgery. Jeter's surgeon, Dr. Robert Anderson, who diagnosed Jeter in Charlotte on Thursday, told Cashman that "95 percent" of the people who have this injury come back from it fine.

Cashman said the crack will take from four to eight weeks to heal. Jeter, who turns 39 in June, will then need close to a full spring training before he will be ready to play in a major league game again."

This blows. I think Curtis may be the only one who returns this year in good shape. Why the hell was Jeter playing in spring training game(s)? And wrists are some prickly ass bones so Teix could very well come back for a week before re-aggravating it. And local boy SS Cito Culver is long ways away. From AA. Oi!
