BALTIMORE — Derek Jeter began the season on the disabled list, and that’s how it will end.
The New York Yankees shortstop will miss the rest of the year after being placed on the DL with an injured left ankle.
Jeter missed the first part of the season after breaking his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He returned to the DL twice more and played only 17 games, batting .190 with one homer and seven RBIs.
The captain fully intends to return next year, even though he turns 40 on June 26.
