Yankees captain Jeter back in action with offseason workout

A lot of New York Yankees fans will love this, team captain Derek Jeter is officially back on the field and ready to take on the 2014 season. He took his first offseason workout on Monday, after missing virtually the entire 2013 season due to injuries.

If you'll remember, Jeter fractured his ankle during the 2012 postseason and missed the first 91 games of this past season. He made his big return on July 11, but showed problems with his quadriceps. He went back to the disabled list and would remain there until July 28 when he strained his calf. That put him back on the bench until August 26 when he rejoined the team. He would play until September 7, but the Yankees would end his season shortly after his return. When asked about getting back on track, Jeter was certainly happy:

I don't think about it, and that's a good thing. It's good to have a normal offseason and get some work in. Everything is normal now.

The Yankees will definitely have a different look in 2014, as many of their familiar faces have taken off for new teams. The two biggest stories for the team this past year was the retirement of closer Mariano Rivera and the suspension of Alex Rodriguez, who we now know will miss the entire 2014 season due to his Biogenesis suspension.

The team will officially kick off its Spring Training when pitchers and catchers report on Friday, February 14. Their full team will report on February 19, and they will see their first live action on February 25 when the play the Florida State Seminoles. Their first MLB action will be on the 26th, when they face the Pittsburgh Pirates.
