TAMPA, Fla. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Derek Jeter had a miserable offseason he would rather forget.
Not only did the New York Yankees captain not win another World Series ring, his season ended when he had to be helped off the field because of a broken ankle. He met with reporters on Sunday, which was the reporting day for New York’s position players.
“Absolutely terrible,” Jeter said Sunday, the spring training reporting day for New York’s positions players. “Mentally it was rough, too, but more physical. I was stuck on the couch for a good five, six weeks where I couldn’t really move around too much. I had a little scooter to move around. It was not fun.”
