Derek Jeter Out For Playoffs With Broken Ankle [VIDEO]

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is done for the season after breaking his ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night.

Derek Jeter suffered a broken ankle during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday night against the Detroit Tigers.  To add insult to injury, the Yankees lost the game to the Tigers 6-4 in 12 innings.  Reliever David Phelps allowed two earned runs off of three hits in the top of the 12th inning.

Jeter fractured his ankle while fielding a ground ball hit by Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta.  Jeter has played in 158 playoff games and won 5 World Championships as a member of the Yankees.  It’s obviously a huge loss for the Yankees as they’ve lost their captain for the remainder of the postseason.

Besides Raul Ibanez, Jeter was the most productive hitter for the Yankees during their ALDS win over the Baltimore Orioles.  Jeter hit .364 during the series and provided some punch to a slumping offense.  The Yankees will attempt to even the series at one win apiece on Sunday afternoon.  First pitch is at 4:07pm.  Coverage can be heard on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
