DEREK JETER LOOKS INTO SURGERY
Thu, 18 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter “likely” will undergo surgery on his broken left ankle, according to a league source.

The possibility had loomed that he would need surgery to repair potential ligament damage associated with the injury suffered in the 12th inning of Game One of the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers.

Prior to Sunday’s 3-0 loss to the Tigers in Game Two, Yankees executive Joe Girardi said it appeared the derivatives of a previous injury or injuries had affected Jeter’s footwork on the play Saturday night in which he broke his ankle.

Girardi also recognized, without verbally addressing it, that his 38-year-old shortstop had received a cortisone shot to permit him to keep playing after he originally suffered a bone bruise in early September Jeter suffered a bone bruise in his left foot in Game A few of the AL Division Series.

A CT scan and MRI taken Sunday confirmed Jeter’s fractured ankle.

Jeter shall visit with Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist, in Charlotte, N.C, in the coming days.

Jeter, whose ankle has been placed in a splint and is walking with crutches, was not at Yankee Stadium on Sunday and will not travel with the team to Detroit.

“When we talked to the doctor originally, he said it’s probably a 3-month ordeal, but you have got to have more tests,” Girardi recounted before Game 2.”Similar to anyone who breaks an ankle, you are going to have an MRI to see if there’s ligament damage, if they need to do far more than just cast it.”

When Girardi was asked if Jeter had received a cortisone shot in the ankle, he did not answer, just smiling, pursing his lips and nodding a bit.

“I don’t think he was playing on a stress fracture, but I think the weakness in his ankle, and the foul tip off his foot, contributed to that,” Girardi said. “You hear tons of fellows talk about when they sprain one ankle, they usually hurt something else. I think it’s inevitable, if you continue to play with something hurt, you’re probably going to finish up hurting yourself somewhere else.”

Jeter has refused to say how he originally suffered the injury, which 1st disturbed him during a road trip against the Rays on Labor Day. He aggravated it later by fouling a ball off it in Boston in mid-September, and injured the same ankle, in a different place, in the last game of the regular season against the Red Sox. At the time, Girardi named the injury a “bone bruise.”

In the early hours of Sun. morning, after X-rays at Yankee Stadium revealed Jeter had fractured the ankle while fielding Jhonny Peralta’s grounder in a game the Yankees went on to lose 6-4, GM Brian Cashman stated that he thought the injury was related to Jeter’s earlier ankle injuries. NFL lines

“It really well could be related,” Cashman said.”He’s been so banged up with that foot, I’d believe it is related, yeah.”
