Via Bryan Hoch and every other beat writer in Tampa:
Derek Jeter started running today. “I’m progressing, like I told you. I’m right where I need to be. I’ve gotten the ok to do everything.”
So Jeter is running, he’s moving slightly from side to side while taking grounders and according to the man himself, he’s progressing like he’s supposed to.
That’s good news the day before Yankee pitchers and catchers report to camp. Of course, that’s not stopping other guys from showing up. Also from Bryan Hoch, the other players at camp are: Curtis Granderson, Phil Hughes, David Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Michael Pineda, Hiroki Kuroda, Clay Rapada, David Aardsma, and Melky Mesa.
Do you know what this means? There’s only one more day until the official start of Spring Training. And whether you’re the kind of person who gets excited about Spring Training or you’re someone who prefers to get excited when Opening Day rolls around, one thing is for certain, baseball is just around the corner.
