Yankees | More on Derek Jeter

Updating a previous report, the New York Yankees are saying that when SS Derek Jeter (ankle) returns to game action in extended spring training, he will likely need close to a full spring training before he's ready to return to the majors. "He is not ready to play in games. I don't think they necessarily have an exact date where they know he is going to play in games. We'll just go day by day and see how he feels," manager Joe Girardi said.

Fantasy Tip: The news continues to be bleak on Jeter for owners that are hoping for a quick return. You can forget about all that now, and we wouldn't blame you if you dropped Jeter from your roster in shallow mixed leagues. He still has a long ways to go, folks.
