Derek Jeter Begins Throwing
Derek Jeter has begun at least one baseball activity, throwing, at Yankee Stadium. The Yankee captain isn’t allowed to do anything else until he gets a CT scan sometime in the next week and a half.“I just started throwing today,” Jeter told Yankees.com. “I’ve got another test in the next week and a half, and after that, I’ll know [more]. I can’t run. I can’t do anything like that until the next test. We’ll wait to see what happens.”
Jeter continued: ”It’s been good.” ”Like I said, I haven’t done anything besides walk. It’s been pretty good doing that, but we won’t know until the test. You can’t fake out a CT scan, so we’ll see what it says.”
Jeter told Bryan Hoch that it has been good to be around the team instead of being in Florida with not much to do.
The Yankees will welcome back Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis this weekend against Boston and Andy Pettitte during the Cleveland series which begins on Monday in New York.
