Derek Jeter fractures ankle, out for postseason

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Derek Jeter has been diagnosed with a left ankle fracture and is out for the remainder of the postseason.

Girardi said that the injury has a three month recovery period. It’s not career ending, Girardi made sure to say, but it does mean the Yankees will be without their captain for the rest of 2012.

The Yankees will activate Eduardo Nunez for tomorrow’s Game 2.


Losing Derek Jeter for the rest of the postseason is devastating. Add to that, Mo is also out for the postseason. Andy P. soldiers on and pitched well last night. Ichiro and Ibanez played well last night. Out there amongst the rest of that team lies a bunch of players who need to, “step up.” Time to be a real Yankee!


Losing Game 1 is one thing, losing The Captain is truly BAD. Hate to be gloom and doom Yankee fans but I’ll be shocked if this team isn’t swept now. Hope I’m wrong but sure does NOT look good at all.
