Yankees | Derek Jeter not close to playing in games

New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) is only taking grounders and batting practice, but he isn't close to getting into any rehab games. He's unlikely to return May 1.

Fantasy Tip: It would likely be a miracle if we were to see Jeter back with the Yanks on May 1. Plan accordingly. At his age, this isn't an easy injury to come back from at all. When he does return, expect Joe Girardi to rest him at any chance he gets. It could be a long season for No. 2, in the end. Don't expect similar numbers to what he put up last year when he comes back.
