Yankees | Derek Jeter cleared
Updating a previous report, New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) has been cleared to start baseball activities in his recovery from a broken left ankle. He will not take the field for workouts until later in the month, which he is said his normal pre-spring training routine. "I've got the okay to start," Jeter said Wednesday, Jan. 16. "But I don't start until next week or the week after, anyway. In terms of baseball activity, I'm right where I need to be."
Fantasy Tip: Jeter was a top-five fantasy option at his position last season, but he is expected to be more of a Top 10-15 option in 2013. He is 38 years of age and coming off a major injury, after all. Still, he'll be a solid fantasy shortstop or middle infield option even in mixed leagues, and more than worthy of a middle-round pick on Draft Day.
