The New York Yankees said that Derek Jeter will get surgery done on his broken left ankle, and he could need 4-5 months to completely recover.
The Yankees said that Dr. Robert Anderson is going to operate on Jeter's ankle on Saturday, according to SF Gate. The team said that Jeter will probably be able to return sometime in mid-February or mid-March.
According to Washington Post, Jeter, 38, injured his ankle in the 12th inning of the Game 1 of the ALCS last Saturday. Jeter was seen hobbling off the field with some of the team's training staff.
According to Chicago Tribune, Brian Cashman, Yankees general manager, said that nothing new led to the timetable to Jeter's recovery.
Cashman said that he things that Jeter just wanted to be conservative with it. Cashman said that it is a possibility that Jeter may be ready earlier than the time frame given but just to be safe, they are saying he will be out for four or five months.
