Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Derek Jeter (ankle) could make his Grapefruit League debut as soon as Saturday.
Well, look how that worked out, Jeter and Mariano Rivera making their spring debut the same day. The shortstop will DH in his first game back. Jeter, of course, underwent surgery last October to repair a fractured ankle but has been given "final clearance" by doctors. He has plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day, barring a setback.
