|Today Jeter was on the treadmill instead of observing.|
Jeter was originally expected to miss the beginning of the regular season, but he is rehabbing well and has been cleared for all baseball related activities. He arrived in Tampa early this year and has been seen taking grounders in the in-field as well as long tossing.
The Yankees are taking cautionary measures with Jeter's recovery. He may always want to get on the field and play, but at the age of 38 the team needs him to be fully healthy for him to be relied on as the daily shortstop in 2013. If a set-back occurs or he rushes to get back, the team could find itself with more injury risk and result in more playing time for Eduardo Nunez in the infield. To be honest, not many people want to see that.
