Yankees Can't Count On The Captain

Derek Jeter wanted to be ready for Opening Day, but a setback during the Spring Training rehab of his left ankle ended hopes of that.  The next goal was May 1, but according to manager Joe Girardi that date is no longer possible.
From ESPN.com: "[Early May] was a date that was thrown out there," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "The easiest way for me to say it is he will be back when he is back -- when he can physically do it on an everyday basis, and I don't think any of us will know the exact date until we go through some trial and error.

"He is not ready to play in games. I don't think they necessarily have an exact date where they know he is going to play in games. We'll just go day by day and see how he feels."
Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix will continue to hold down the fort for now.
