Jeter will bat second and play shortstop for the Yankees when they take on R.A. Dickey and the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre; a game that will begin just shortly after 7:00 p.m. eastern time.
Jeter landed on the DL for the third time back on August 3 with a strained calf after coming off the disabled list back on July 28 from a Grade 1 quad strain.
His original DL stint started before spring training when he was recovering from the ankle fracture he suffered back in October and had the injury further aggravated when he cracked the ankle trying to play in spring training.
The 69-61 Yankees are seven games out in the American League East division, but are 3.5 games out of the American League Wild Card spot, so getting a healthy Jeter back into the lineup should only further help the Yankees chances of getting to the postseason.
The 39-year-old captain is hitting .211 with one home run and two RBI in just five games played for the Yankees in 2013, as he has missed a total of 125 games with multiple injuries.
