In somewhat exciting news, Derek Jeter, according to a person in the know, has resumed baseball activities.
Eric Boland tweeted, “Told by person in Tampa Jeter did baseball stuff on field for first time since surgery. Took swings in batting cage and fielded 55 grounders.”
Jeter, who is now just shy of five months removed from his 39th (gasp!) birthday, was recovering from ankle surgery in October and looks to be right on schedule for an Opening Day return to the Yankees’ lineup.
It’s nice to hear good news on a snowy Monday here in the New York area. This news also means we’re another day closer to Spring Training. 15 days and counting!
