According to CBS Sports, Derek Jeter's final workout in Florida was canceled by rain Friday, but he did spend 30 minutes indoors training, the Associated Press reports. Now, Jeter will begin the second phase of his rehab from a strained right calf.
Next up is a two-game stint with the Double-A Trenton Thunder, with Jeter expected to return to the Yankees on Monday. Jeter is six hits away from 3,000 for his career but at this point would need a scorching series in Cleveland to reach the milestone on the road.
The odds are that Jeter gets his 3,000th hit at home at some point from Thursday through Sunday against the Rays in the final four games prior to the All-Star break.
