Elsa/Getty ImagesDerek Jeter provided the game-winning RBI from his DH role Saturday.
At least. Joe Girardi said that Derek Jeter would not play shortstop again at least until the Blue Jays get to town for a three-game series starting Tuesday night.
"Physically, hes getting better,'' Girardi said. "It’s not where I want it but it's better. So that’s a good sign, I hope.''
Jeter, who had an RBI single in the fifth that proved to be the game-winner, did not appear in the postgame clubhouse, no doubt tired of discussing his least favorite subject: his left ankle, which he rolled in Tampa last week and aggravated the other night in Boston.
But he has said repeatedly that he is capable of playing shortstop now, but would accede to the wishes of the manager. Reluctantly, of course.
