The Yankees captian Derek Jeter expects to be in the line up April 1 when New York opens the 2013 season vs. the Boston Red Sox.
According to an MLB report on Feb. 17, Jeter is on the mend from a surgically repaired left ankle that he broke in the 2012 ALCS and won't be seeing much action early on in the 2013 preseason, but Jeter seems optimistic that he is right on course of his healing process.
"I broke my ankle in October. It's been quite some time," Jeter said. "I'm right where I'm supposed to be. Up until this point, the ankle has healed perfectly. Now, it's just a matter of getting everything else in shape.
"You've got to wait for the bone to heal before you can do other activities that are even before baseball activities. Now, it's just progressing up until that point. I'm going to have to push myself, but Opening Day has been the goal all along."
The 6-3, 275lb. 22 year old can hit 102 m.p.h. on the radar gun often, and he looked good according to early reports.
Randon only threw to minor leaguers, but manager Jim Leyland wants to bring him up slowly.
Anyone who can throw 100 m.p.h. plus has a future in this game.
