TAMPA , Fla. -- I have gotten this question on Twitter so I’ll try to answer it here. Now that Derek Jeter says he's 100 percent when will he play?

My best guess is Monday at Steinbrenner Field.

I think it is possible he could get into a game on Saturday, but that really should be Mariano Rivera’s day. In Jupiter on Friday, when asked about that possiblity of Jeter DHing on Saturday, Girardi told reporters it is possible.



On Sunday the Yankees are in Dunedin to face the Blue Jays and I tend to doubt Jeter would make his debut on the road. So Monday seems like as good a day as any.

This is only a prediction. If I were betting I would go with Monday, but I'm not.
