Yankees targeting May 1 for Derek Jeter’s return

Derek Jeter told everyone he was on his usual schedule for spring training and that ended up not being the case. Then some folks have said that he may be back by mid-April, but that seems not to be the case now either. Jon Heyman reports that the new target is May 1.

Jeter was able to begin playing catch earlier this week but still hasn’t done any sort of infield work or running.  At this point the goal should be to make sure he’s available continuously for the bulk of the season rather than to get him back as soon as possible for its own sake.
