Jeter Goes 1-for-2 in 1st Rehab Game

Derek Jeter played his first of two rehab games in Trenton yesterday. Jeter went 1-for-2 and scored a run as the Thunder beat Altoona 4-3. Here are some quotes from Jeter and Cashman via David Heck:
"It feels good," he told "I was nervous coming in, I hadn't played in three weeks, so there were some nerves. I didn't sleep much last night, but it feels good to get going because you can't duplicate anything you do in a game."


"I did a lot of things, first to third, tagging up, ball to the left, ball to the right," Jeter said. "I moved around quite a bit, so I'm happy with how everything went.

"The ball up the middle, where you have to spin and throw off-balance, I think that was a test. Even the ball to the right was slower and I threw off of one leg, so I'm happy with how everything went."


"Today, he looked great," Cashman said. "He looked better at the plate than you expected, and I thought that play defensively was a pretty tough play to make. This day couldn't have gone any better."
