According to the New York Post on Friday, November 30, 2012, Derek Jeter was spotted at a hotel on South Beach in Miami on Thursday, wearing a walking boot on his left foot as a protection for his broken ankle. He underwent a surgery last October 20 and is being expected to need 4 to 5 months to fully recover.

As noted in the report, Brian Cashman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the New York Yankees, said that Jeter now lacks regular exercise and he cannot put any weight on his injured foot, causing him to gain weight, with his built now a bit far from his usual physique.

“I saw that the picture said he was heavy. I can’t tell you he is heavy. Even if he was, I’m not worried about Derek Jeter in that capacity in any way. You are not going to find anybody more committed to being the best he can be than Derek Jeter.” Cashman was quoted at when he saw the photo on the newspaper.

“You can’t speed up the healing process. Right now, the doctors’ orders are rest. So I have no worries about Derek Jeter. There is nothing about Derek Jeter that I have to worry other than rest.” Cashman added, noting that the 38-year old five-time World Series champion is doing well on his recovery.
