Derek Jeter Out Until After Break

New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter has been diagnosed with a small crack in his surgically repaired left ankle, a setback that will keep him sidelined until after the All-Star break.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made the announcement before Thursday night’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Jeter originally dislocated the ankle in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series in October.

Cashman said Jeter will not need another surgery. Jeter’s surgeon, Dr. Robert Anderson, who diagnosed the shortstop in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday, told Cashman that “95 percent” of the people who have this injury come back from it fine.
