The New York Yankees and Derek Jeter announced today that he will be placed on the DL due to a nagging ankle injury ending his season. Jeter has battled injuries all year, and only played in 17 games with a .190 batting average. This is the same ankle he injured during last year playoffs and it hasn’t healed the way he expected. Jeter has a 9.5 million dollar player option which he is expected to pick up this off season. Jeter will now get the chance to rest all off season and strengthen his ankle. I just want to see Jeter get healthy and retire when he wants. No great player should be forced to retire due to injuries.
