Yanks’ Jeter done for year

– Derek Jeter began the season on the disabled list, and that is how it will end.

The New York Yankees shortstop will miss the rest of the season after being placed on the disabled list Wednesday with an ankle injury.

Jeter, 39, started the year on the disabled list after breaking his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He returned to the DL twice more and played in only 17 games, batting .190 with one homer and seven RBI. And now, he’s been shelved for a fourth time.

“This entire season has been a nightmare for me physically,” Jeter said. “It’s a fitting end.”
