The rest of the 2012 Major League Baseball postseason will not have New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.
In an amazing scene Saturday night at Yankee Stadium for game one of the American League Championship Series, Jeter dove for a ground ball, fell awkwardly on the ground and could not get up. In fact, Jeter needed the assistance of manager Joe Girardi to get back to the dugout.
The diagnosis was a broken ankle and yesterday the announcement was made that Jeter will be out for the remainder of the playoffs.
The Yankees have now activated Eduardo Nunez and will start former Toronto Blue Jay Jayson Nix at shortstop.
Currently the Yankees are trailing Detroit 2-0 in the American League Championship Series. Yesterday the Tigers won 3-0 on a brilliant pitching performance by Anibal Sanchez. The Yankees bats are currently frozen. They only had four hits yesterday afternoon.
