Report: Jeter Will Return to Yankees Lineup on Thursday
The Yankees will have their captain back on Thursday as Derek Jeter will return to New York's lineup.
Fox Sports reports "Jeter will rejoin the New York Yankees on Thursday afternoon and is expected to be in their lineup at either shortstop or designated hitter against the Kansas City Royals, according to major league sources."
Jeter "will be playing for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left ankle last October. He suffered the original injury during the American League Championship Series, then had a setback in April when doctors discovered a small crack in his ankle, near the initial break."
