Bad News for Jeter, lineup

Brian Cashman spoke to the media this afternoon and revealed that Derek Jeter will be out until after the All-Star break with a cracked ankle, near the location of his initial injury. Jeter was pushing hard to come back by April 1st, which could have had something to do with the re-injury. Ultimately, Jeter's minor fracture will keep him out until July, when he will again be reassessed. Eduardo Nunez will show us if he is capable of being an every day shortstop in the Major Leagues. This is a major blow to the Yankees, who hoped to have Jeter back in early May along with the rest of their injured players.

Now, for today's lineup:

Brett Gardner CF
Vernon Wells LF
Robinson Cano 2B
Kevin Youkilis 1B
Ben Francisco DH
Francisco Cervelli C
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Jayson Nix 3B

SP: RHP Phil Hughes vs. LHP Patrick Corbin
