Derek Jeter Will No Longer Address Questions About Left Ankle Injury Despite Doubts He Will Be Ready for Opener

Derek JeterIt will be difficult to find out whether Derek Jeter will be ready to start the season with the Yankees. That’s because he’s no longer going to answer questions about his injured ankle.

Jeter will DH in a minor league game on Saturday afternoon after getting shut down earlier in the week due to inflammation on his left ankle. He’s tired of talking about the surgically-repaired ankle, though.

“I will not address how anything feels anymore,” Jeter told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. “It’s good. It’s not broken. Some things, you’ve got to work through, like I told you. It’s really pointless to sit here and say each and every day, ‘How’s it feel? Does it feel better?’

“It’s pointless. Some days are good, some days are bad, but you’ve got to work through it. That’s what I’m going to do.”

You hear that? Your questions are pointless. Even though it’s major news if the Yankees don’t have yet another star for their home opener on April 1 against the Red Sox.
