08:31 AM ET 07.06 | The Yankees move one step closer to getting the Captain back today. Derek Jeter, who has not played this season, will begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tonight. He is scheduled to play five innings at shortstop, moving closer to returning to The Bronx as he recovers from a broken left ankle. "That's really good news," manager Joe Girardi said. "That obviously means his ankle's feeling a lot better."

I just don't see him playing at a high level. Any offense he may add will be negated by even shorter range on defense. But still good for fans to see him play, his days are getting shorter.

He can hold down the fort until Nunez returns. Did I just type that?
