Derek Jeter Progressing, But There’s Still No Timetable for His Return

Each week for roughly the past two months, we've been trying to project when Derek Jeter will collect his 3,000th career hit. His calf injury, however, has put that chase on hold, and even now — on the day he's eligible to come off the disabled list — the Yankees won't provide a timetable for his return. But here's what we know about his rehab progress: He took 43 swings today during four sessions of batting practice, increased his speed during sprints, and took ground balls both on the grass and from his usual position at shortstop. He plans to go through the same workout tomorrow, and whenever he is ready for game action again, Joe Girardi says he'll probably need two rehab starts before rejoining the big-league club. And in the meantime, if you're growing tired of reading about his rehab, or his career hits total, or his place in his batting order, we direct your attention here. [MLB.com, USA Today]
