    Derek Jeter will return to the New York Yankees' lineup on Thursday, reported late Wednesday night.

    Jeter, who has missed the entire season while recovering from a broken ankle suffered in last season's American League Championship Series, will be activated and in the lineup against the Kansas City Royals at either shortstop or designated hitter, the report said.

    The 39-year-old played his fourth minor league game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday night. However, neither Yankees manager Joe Girardi nor general manager Brian Cashman would confirm an earlier YES Network report that the Yankees plan to call Jeter up on Friday.

    "As I've said, we evaluate it every day," Girardi said after the Yankees' 8-1 win over Kansas City. "Let's just see where he's at."

    Jeter struggled in the field Wednesday. He made an error on a throw to first in the fifth, bobbled a grounder on a blown force play at second in the third, and failed to get a lead runner at third base on another third-inning grounder.

    You beat me to it. :) He went 1-4 with and RBI and 1 RUN, but came up lame. He should just call it quits.
