Jeter suffers setback; out until All-Star break

The SportsXchange

The New York Yankees will have to wait longer for their captain's return.

Shortstop Derek Jeter had a CT scan of his injured left ankle Thursday that showed a new break, delaying the All-Star's return until at least midseason.

"We're looking at, in terms of speculation when Derek Jeter will be back with us, sometime after the All-Star break," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters. "[It's] obviously a setback."

Jeter broke his ankle last October in the opener of the AL Championship Series. He played sparingly in spring training and began the season rehabbing at the team's minor-league complex in Tampa, Fla.

Jeter is coming off a 2012 regular season in which he batted .316 with a .362 on-base percentage, and collected 216 hits in 683 at-bats.
