Derek Jeter: “I will not address how anything feels anymore”
Derek Jeter will get back into the batter’s box today, testing his surgically repaired left ankle as the designated hitter in a Minor League game at the Yankees’ Himes Avenue complex.
The Yankees captain took batting practice and fielded ground balls with infield coach Mick Kelleher this morning at George M. Steinbrenner Field, and said that he does not know how many at-bats he is scheduled to get. Jeter did say that he has grown weary of answering questions about his health.
“I will not address how anything feels anymore,” Jeter said. “It’s good. It’s not broken. Some things, you’ve got to work through, like I told you. It’s really pointless to sit here and say each and every day, ‘How’s it feel? Does it feel better?’
“It’s pointless. Some days are good, some days are bad, but you’ve got to work through it. That’s what I’m going to do.”
Jeter’s game action is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. this afternoon.
