Derek Jeter out for Rest of Season After Going on Disabled List

Patrick ClarkeCorrespondent ISeptember 11, 2013

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the 2013 MLB season after being placed on the disabled list on Wednesday, according to's Bryan Hoch via Twittter:

The New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand adds that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has confirmed that Jeter will not return for the postseason if New York makes the playoffs this October:

According to Hoch, Jeter still plans to play in 2014 and isn't letting his current injury bring him down:

Cashman also expects Jeter to bounce back for 2014, as USA Today noted his comments from a recent press conference in Baltimore: "I have not watched his last game. No one has."

However,'s Bryan Hoch notes how hard this year has been on Jeter:

Jeter recently re-injured his surgically repaired left ankle and had been out of the lineup since Sunday's showdown with the Boston Red Sox, according to's Andrew Marchand. On Monday, Yankees manger Joe Girardi said he did not know when Jeter would return.

The 39-year-old has fractured his left ankle twice since October 2012, but a CT scan on Saturday came back negative, according to Marchand.

Losing Jeter for the rest of the year is a huge hit for the Yankees in terms of the leadership and experience he brings to the table—even if his production hasn't been overly impressive.

After all, Jeter only appeared in 17 regular-season games in 2013 after being cleared to return. He was batting a career-low .190 with seven RBI and just one home run before being shut down.

The Yankees are currently 10.5 games back of the Red Sox in the American League East division, and two games back of the American League wild-card spot with 17 games left to play.

A former American League Rookie of the Year, a five-time World Series champion and a 13-time All-Star, Jeter is in the final year of a three-year, $51 million deal with New York that includes an $8 million player option for the 2014 season.

Jeter, who made his MLB debut with the Yankees back in May 1995, is currently in his 19th season with the team.
