Cross those fingers Yankees fans.
New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, who came off the Disabled list last Thursday, may find himself back on the DL tonight as the Yankees get ready for a three game set against the Red Sox in Fenway Park.
Yankees General manager Brian Cashman told reporters that Jeter will meet the Yankees at Fenway Park, at which time the decision will be made whether Jeter will play against the Red Sox, or lands back on the disabled list.
“I couldn’t tell you, he is on the active roster and expected to be in Boston. I can’t tell you [whether] he will be a player in Boston or not.’’
Jeter, who spent the last week rehabbing at Yankees Stadium, would likely DH tonight if he was able to find his way back in the lineup.
The Yankees are hoping Jeter can make it back onto the field as they attempt to make up some ground against the AL East leading Red Sox, who currently have a six game edge over the Yankees for the division lead.
