New York Post. Derek Jeter was spotted at a hotel on South Beach in Miami yesterday wearing a walking boot to protect the left ankle he broke in the playoffs last season. Yet the 38-year-old Jeter also seemed to be carrying another burden — some extra weight hanging from the Yankees shortstop’s normally fit frame.
According to general manager Brian Cashman, Jeter has been in a non-weight bearing situation and will continue to be until January. That means if he has been able to work out at all, it has been limited to upper body because he can’t put any weight on his left foot.
Hey Captain – I know you are recovering from surgery on your left ankle, but tighten your shit up! Pitchers and catchers report on February 20th, meaning you’ve got around four months to get your shit together. You are doing cardio and situps for 5 hours a day starting tomorrow, December 1st. Your last easy day was yesterday!
