New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has suffered a setback in his return from his ankle injury and won’t be ready to return until after the All-Star break, according to the New York Daily News. Jeter traveled to Charlotte today to visit with the surgeon who operated on his ankle in October. It was there that a CT scan revealed a small crack in the area of the previous injury. Jeter will not require another surgery. "This is obviously a setback," general manager Brian Cashman told the newspaper before updating the timetable for Jeter's return. Jeter fractured his left ankle in Game 1 of last year’s ALCS and had surgery on it soon after. He rehabbed during the offseason and reported to spring training hopeful that he would be ready for the start of the regular season. Things initially went smoothly in camp, but Jeter began to experience discomfort soon after returning to the field in Grapefruit League action in mid-March. At that point, the team admitted he likely would begin the season on the disabled list. However, the Yankees hoped he would return April 6. That April 6 target date came and went with little improvement, though Jeter recently had increased his workouts at the team’s spring training facility.
