Jeter expected back Monday
August 24, 2013
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is about ready to rejoin the team after being sidelined earlier this month by a strained right calf.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay that barring a setback, Jeter will be back with the team Monday in Toronto.
Jeter broke his left ankle in the AL championship series in October and missed the first 91 games this year. Since then the 13-time All-Star, who is hitting .211 (4 for 19) with one home run and two RBIs, has spent time on the DL with a strained right quadriceps and the calf injury.
The Yankees captain is on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
