Derek Jeter Fractures Ankle, Will Miss Remainder of Postseason

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports - Presswire

The Yankees captain injured the ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has a fractured ankle and will miss the remainder of the playoffs, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports.

In addition to missing the playoffs, Jeter will sit out for the next three months to recover, according to Girardi. The Captain was hurt during an awkward tumbling play in an attempt to corral a ground ball in the top of the twelfth inning. He would exit the game with assistance, putting little to no weight on the injured ankle.

Jeter has never missed a playoff game in his career and entered Game 1 of the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers having played in 157 postseason games. In total, he is the leader in eight postseason categories, including games played, runs scored, hits, total bases, doubles, and triples. Earlier in the game, Jeter collected his 200th postseason hit.

The Yankees will likely replace Jeter by splitting time between Jayson Nix and Eduardo Nunez, though their production is unlikely to match his.
