Jeter makes unscheduled doctor’s visit in Tampa

Update: From Andy McCullough ‏...“Derek Jeter has a small crack in the area of the previous injury, per a CT scan. Cashman says he won’t be back until after All-Star Break.”

Reports are coming out that Derek Jeter did not make his work out today, and is instead making an unscheduled doctor’s visit in Tampa. This is not looking good. Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News asked Girardi about this:

Asked if something happened during Wednesday’s workout that prompted Jeter’s doctor visit, Girardi said, “Put two and two together.”

Thanks to Doug.

I thought Biogenesis was in Miami?

You don't want to have to make an unscheduled doctor's visit. Jeter probably had to sit in the waiting room for a good two and a half hours.

Have we seen the last of Jeter in the majors? I imagine he'll be back at some point for at least a few games, but the possibility he's done doesn't seem like it can be ruled out anymore.

We've certainly heard the last of "CAN JETER CATCH ROSE?!?!"

4,000 hits may be out of reach if Jeter doesn't meet this latest target date.
   9. gehrig97 Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:42 PM (#4418339)
latest reports have him out until "after the all-star break"... there goes any remote chance at 4000 hits (I don't think Jeter hangs 'em up over this, but who knows? The Yankees can decline his option, and then... well...)
   10. Dale Sams Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:44 PM (#4418341)
Yanks don't need him apparently. Or ARod or Granderson or Pettite or Teixiera.
   11. boteman Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:45 PM (#4418342)
I have broken my wrist (impact "fracture") and my big toe and the most the doctor did was x-ray it and say, "Yep! You gotta broken bone thar, son." Then put it in a cast and it healed naturally.

What exactly does surgery do to help a broken bone heal?

Is there a doctor in the house?
   12. asinwreck Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:45 PM (#4418344)
Ankle injuries are tricky to overcome, especially as you get older. What are the odds that Jeter plays as many as 60 more games at shortstop?
   13. Millon deFloss Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:49 PM (#4418347)
As opposed to just standing there, catching balls hit straight at him?

He still has a player option. So he can spend another year being paid to sit on the DL if he so desires!

Having gotten the snark out of my system I'll say this is a shame if that's all she wrote for him. For all the snark and ######## about him he has had a career that a very small number of players can top. One of my resolutions this year is to flip over to the Yankees anytime they go to the ninth with the lead to watch Rivera as much as possible.

If it is a more complicated fracture, a surgery can be required to stabilize the bones and set them into proper position to heal properly.
   18. Repoz Posted: April 18, 2013 at 04:57 PM (#4418360)
On hold: Derek Jeter is still 952 hits behind Pete Rose...and 854 strikeouts behind Reggie Jackson on the All-Time lists.
   19. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: April 18, 2013 at 05:02 PM (#4418365)
Jim Thome is 49 strikeouts behind Reggie Jackson on the all-time list. Looks like he's not going to make it.

Young average guys are generally better than old (hasbeen) superstars.

Of course, I'm out of touch enough to not know who is currently playing for the Yankees but had you told me in 2004 that, in 2013, those guys would have been lost to injury I'd not be either surprised nor worried about the Yankees.

He'll still be voted the AL All-star shortstop

according to ESPN he is not scheduled for further surgery
"We have to back off and let that heal," Cashman said of the small crack in the bone....Cashman said Jeter will not need another surgery

It's fun to see the younger generation taking over. My son went to HS with Andy.

And win a gold glove.

My first thought off headline was, she got a gift basket, he got - a parting gift that keeps on giving.

glad to hear he just has a small crack in an area of a previous injury, as the story puts it

Screw those... how does this injury affect Derek Jeter's shot at breaking Wilt Chamberlain's record?
   27. Lassus Posted: April 18, 2013 at 10:51 PM (#4418751)
I admit, I'm sad Jeter can't make a run at Rose.
   28. cardsfanboy Posted: April 18, 2013 at 10:53 PM (#4418754)

fortunately, there is a good chance he won't be given a chance to do that with the new proprietary method of voting.

@24 - Good one Walt. I for one have underestimated Jeter a few times already, wouldn't surprise me if he came back and hit .310 in August and Sept.
   30. DFA Posted: April 19, 2013 at 02:56 AM (#4418900)
I admit, I'm sad Jeter can't make a run at Rose.


Me too. I loathe all things Yankee (except Rivera for some reason), but part of me felt sorrow for my Yankee fan friends when I learned the news today. His time is coming to an end, and you hate to see a half season go out the window.
   31. boteman Posted: April 19, 2013 at 06:56 AM (#4419016)

Well, he could if somebody pushes his wheelchair rapidly enough directly at Rose, since ol' Pete probably couldn't get out of the way these days.

Ahh, who are we kiddin? Jeter's rich enough to pay some other guy to make a run at Rose, maybe even hit him!

Paging Mr. Piazza, Mr. Mike Piazza, please report to the Jeter thread.

The Yankees are winning with old (hasbeen) non-superstars.

If someone went into a cave a few years ago, then woke up this morning to check the AL East standings, they'd think everything was normal and no time had passed. At least, until they started looking at lineups and pitching staffs (staves!) and saw ichiro batting .190 in the 8-hole, the jays have a knuckleballer but don't have Vernon Wells, turncoat Youk . . . preseason predictions are always foolish but they are looking foolisher earlier than usual this year.

Too bad for Jeter, I was looking forward to seeing him climb the hit leader ladder in THT's Currently Historic column.

Lucky bastard. When I broke my finger I summoned up all my intelligence and didn't go to the doctor for a few days. They did an x-ray and said "Yep! You gotta broken finger there...it's already healing so no point in putting a cast on. Just go home and hope your finger doesn't heal weird."

Should be a boon, there. He doesn't have to take time off from his pursuit to play baseball.
