Jeter expected to be back in walking boot

St. Petersburg, Fla. • New York captain Derek Jeter is expected to be in a walking boot when he rejoins his teammates Thursday for the start of a homestand at Yankee Stadium.

Jeter found out last Thursday that he fractured the ankle for a second time in six months, a blow to a New York team already reeling from injuries and one that raises long-term questions about the future of a shortstop who will be 39 when he returns.

Manager Joe Girardi said Jeter was again examined again this week by Dr. Robert Anderson, who operated on the All-Star's left ankle in Charlotte, N.C., after it was broken last October in Game 1 of the ALCS.

"I think he's back in the boot," Girardi said before Tuesday night's game at Tampa Bay.

The Yankees believe that Jeter should be able to resume his rehabilitation when the new crack heals in about four to eight weeks, and could return after the All-Star break.

New York infielder Kevin Youkilis was out of the lineup for the third straight game Tuesday. Girardi expects Youkilis, who continued getting treatment, also will miss Wednesday's series finale with the Rays.
