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.
