Jeter Expects To Be Ready On Opening Day

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter took questions from media members during a press conference Sunday morning in spring camp and expressed once again that he fully intends to be in the starting lineup on Opening Day April 1 against the Red Sox.

I broke my ankle in October; its been quite some time, Jeter said Sunday, via MLB.coms Bryan Hoch. Im right where Im supposed to be. Up until this point, the ankle has healed perfectly, now its just a matter of getting everything else in shape.

Im going to have to push myself, Jeter continued, but Opening Day has been the goal all along.
