March 20 (Bloomberg) -- Derek Jeter may miss the New York Yankees’ opening game of the Major League Baseball season as he recovers from a broken ankle that required surgery, General Manager Brian Cashman said today.

Cashman spoke to reporters at the Yankees’ spring training camp a day after Jeter, the team’s captain and All-Star shortstop, was pulled from the lineup with soreness and stiffness in his left ankle.

“It’s a possibility,” Cashman said. Jeter has said repeatedly that he will be ready for the regular season.

The Yankees, who open the season at home against the Boston Red Sox on April 1, already are without first basemen Mark Teixeira and outfielder Curtis Granderson at least through May, and third baseman Alex Rodriguez through midseason.
