    Does the Yankees captain need some P90X DVDs for  Christmas? Via the Post

    The ankle we knew about. The gut, not so much.

    Derek Jeter was spotted at a hotel on South Beach in Miami yesterday wearing a walking boot to protect the left ankle he broke in the playoffs last season. Yet the 38-year-old Jeter also seemed to be carrying another burden — some extra weight hanging from the Yankees shortstop’s normally fit frame.

    According to general manager Brian Cashman, Jeter has been in a non-weight bearing situation and will continue to be until January. That means if he has been able to work out at all, it has been limited to upper body because he can’t put any weight on his left foot.

    Jeter has also been seen at the team’s minor league complex in Tampa a couple times this offseason, but not on a regular basis. It’s unknown if he has been there for treatment, workouts or something else.

    I dunno…

    Looks like he’s wearing a loose T-shirt, out, on a windy day. But, maybe he has gained ten pounds or so since his injury, given that it’s not allowing him to workout? I guess we’ll have to wait for him to appear in Central Park with his shirt off, just to be sure…

      If anything, he doesn’t look fat…he just looks like a normal dude. Not the SS of the New York Yankees. He looks like the guy that opens up my neighborhood bodega, after an all night bender and spending the night with one of his female customers.

      I agree with Garcia, he doesn’t look fat, just like an average joe. His arms look pretty puny so I suppose he simply hasn’t worked out at all this winter.

      He’ll be fine. No one has a better attitude about being in shape for the season.

      I think its just a very unflattering photo. But like MJ said, I was a little surprised by his arms.

      “Photographic evidence that the Yankees shortstop is indeed in pretty darn good shape as he continues to recover from October ankle surgery….”
