Cashman: DL is possible for Jeter

Brian Cashman said Derek Jeter has taken a cortisone shot for his "cranky" left ankle, and the Yankees' GM could not rule out that Jeter might land on the DL to begin the season.

"At this stage, I just don't know, so all I can do is acknowledge it's a possibility," Cashman said when asked if Jeter might miss Opening Day.

Jeter is not in camp on Wednesday.

If Jeter can't start on April Fool's Day, then Eduardo Nuñez, Jayson Nix or possibly someone from outside the organization would be the favorites to play short.

We looked into Nuñez's potential this morning.
