New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter made an unscheduled visit to Charlotte to see the surgeon that performed his ankle surgery last fall, according to Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News. A CT scan revealed a small crack in the area of Jeter's previous ankle injury, and general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that the shortstop is expected to be sidelined until "sometime after the All-Star break."

Given the news of Jeter's unexpected visit to Charlotte, reporters asked manager Joe Girardi if something happened during yesterday's workout that prompted the trip. The manager replied by telling them to "put two and two together." Cashman described the situation as an obvious setback. At this time, it doesn't appear that surgery will be necessary.
It was reported yesterday that Jeter would not be able to return on by May 1, the speculated target date the Yankees were supposedly aiming for. They didn't offer any details or a projected return time frame.
Jeter spent the offseason and spring recovering from the significant ankle injury he sustained during the playoffs.
