NEW YORK (WGGB) — Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been placed on the disabled list, as he recovers from an ankle surgery.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman told ESPN the move ‘effectively ends’ Jeter’s season.

The ankle has troubled Jeter since he broke it during postseason play last October. After recovering from surgery, Jeter fractured it again in spring training.

He was removed from Saturday’s game with soreness in the ankle.

Jeter played in just 17 games this season, managing a batting average of just .190 in his sporadic appearances. They were split by two previous trips to the disabled list this season.

Jeter is with the team during their series against Baltimore, but has not made an official statement on the rest of his season.

On Tuesday night, it was announced the Yankees had acquired infielder Brendan Ryan from the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named.
