The Yankees held a press conference for Cash and Derek Jeter to address the media about an hour ago, and it didn't take a genius to see what was coming when it was announced. At the press conference, it was confirmed that the team will put Jeter on the 15-day DL and Cash said there are no plans to activate him when he's available to come off. Jeter's 2013 season is over.
This is hardly surprising considering the latest leg injury being to the surgically repaired ankle and that the Yankees made a move to trade for Brendan Ryan last night. This last setback was the last straw and in what is surely an attempt to get him started on rehabbing and conditioning for 2014, the call was made to shut Jeter down. Cash and Jeter both referred to The Captain coming back next season, with Cash stating that "no one" has seen Jeter's last game. He only played 17 in 2013. Now we're left to wonder what 2014 will be like.
