Derek Jeter has precautionary CT scan on ankle
Derek Jeter was sent for a CT scan on his surgically repaired left ankle, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. The team announced that the results of that scan were negative. As a precaution, the results will be sent to Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., who performed Jeter’s left ankle surgery last October.
Jeter was removed for a pinch-runner after his sixth-inning RBI single in New York’s 13-9 loss to the Red Sox. Manager Joe Girardi said that he did not like the way Jeter was running and made the move to send in Mark Reynolds to run for him.
“Obviously he’s been through a lot this year,” Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. “Joe didn’t like the way he was running around there, and D.J. is obviously never very forthcoming with anything on that type of stuff. We’re just going to take a look under the hood and make sure everything is OK. If it is, you’ll see him back here tomorrow.”
Girardi said that he did not know if the issue would keep Jeter out of Sunday’s lineup against Boston.
“It’s not what you want,” Girardi said. “It’s what we’ve had to deal with a lot this year. Hopefully he’s OK tomorrow and he can play or somehow contribute.”
