New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has re-injured his left ankle and the team isn’t sure when he will return.
In Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, the team captain was pulled for a pinch-runner after hitting an RBI single in the sixth inning.
The 39-year-old later went to a hospital for a precautionary CT scan. The Yankees office said the initial results were negative.
Jeter has been out most of the season recovering from the broken left ankle he suffered in last year’s playoffs. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says that if the team wasn’t playing to make the playoffs, he could simply take a few days off to rest.
Since being back, Jeter has hit .190 in 17 games.
