ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Hal Steinbrenner is concerned about Derek Jeter's recovery from a broken ankle but is confident the New York Yankees captain will return to his form prior to the injury 13 months ago.
Jeter broke his left ankle on Oct. 13, 2012, during the AL championship series opener against Detroit. He didn't return until July 11 and wound up on the disabled list three more times because of quadriceps and calf injuries and what appeared to be ankle pain. He appeared in only 13 games at shortstop and four at designated hitter, and he'll turn 40 next June.
