NEW YORK (WFAN) — He’s having by his lofty standards a very substandard spring training, but Derek Jeter has been around this game long enough to know not to worry about a slow start.
Even with many speculating that due to various injuries he’ll never regain the form he once showed, the Yankees’ captain told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday night that people need to relax. He’ll get to where he needs to be eventually.
“It’s taken a while. I haven’t played in a year and a half pretty much, so it’s taken a little while to get comfortable. But the last couple of games it’s starting to get there and we got about four or five games left heading into spring, so I feel good right now,” Jeter said. “Everything has been positive. I worked extremely hard this offseason to get my body in shape. I don’t like to jinx things but as of right now I feel extremely good.”
