Derek Jeter set to return to Yankees on Monday

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

It looks likes Derek Jeter is tentatively scheduled to return to the team on Monday. After playing two games with the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, he seems set to rejoin the Yankees when the team travels to Toronto on Monday to take on the Blue Jays. He will play another game at shortstop tomorrow and then join to the team in preparation for his return.

He believes he has tested his calf enough to prove that he can play after what has been his third rehab stint of the season. He originally made his season debut on July 11, then return on July 28 from a quad injury, and now has been sidelined since August 3 with a calf injury.

The Yankee captain doubled in his first game and tonight reached on an error, where he advanced to second on a poor throw and eventually scored. He faced a knuckleballer on Thursday and Friday, will face a non-knuckleballer on Saturday, and then will face R.A. Dickey in his return in Toronto.

In the meantime, the Yankees have only one shortstop on the roster in Eduardo Nunez now that Jayson Nix has been lost for the season with a broken hand. Preston Claiborne was brought back up as the injury replacement, so it would likely be him that's sent down to make room on the active roster.
