No timetable for Jeter's return to Yankees

BALTIMORE -- Yankees captain Derek Jeter continued to receive treatment on his injured left ankle on Monday, and while he could be used in an emergency, the team is not giving a definitive timetable for his return.

Jeter was removed from Saturday's 13-9 loss to the Red Sox for a sixth-inning pinch-runner after manager Joe Girardi said that he did not like how the 39-year-old shortstop was running.

"Right now, it's just a day-to-day thing," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "It was a little sore the other day, something he really wasn't speaking to, but you could see the way he was moving around."

Girardi said that he wanted to keep Jeter from doing any baseball activity on Monday, but added that Jeter could be pressed into duty on his sore ankle if anything happened to shortstop Eduardo Nunez.

"I might use him in an emergency if I had to use him tonight," Girardi said. "That's kind of the situation we're in. It's not like I have a number of shortstops lying around."

Jeter has not spoken publicly since before Saturday's game. He left Yankee Stadium that day to have a CT scan performed on his ankle at a local hospital, and the scan results were negative.

Jeter was spotted by reporters in the visiting clubhouse at Camden Yards on Monday but declined an interview request, retreating to the trainers' room.

The team forwarded Jeter's CT scan results to Dr. Robert Anderson -- who performed Jeter's ankle surgery last October -- but Cashman said that Anderson has not yet responded with his diagnosis.

Cashman added that there has been no consideration given to the idea of shutting Jeter down for the rest of the 2013 season.

"No -- no, no, no," Cashman said.
