More likely, that destination is becoming the place to be for rehabbing New York Yankee stars.
Whatever the reason, Jeter will make his second rehab appearance of the season with the Triple-A RailRiders starting with tonight’s 7:05 game with Pawtucket and is expected to hang around with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre possibly through Saturday.
And that’s encouraging news to a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team that missed out on drawing some prime Yankees players who were working their way back to the big leagues at other levels of the organization in the past.

SCRANTON — Casey Prudente chased a rumor and wound up with a story even she finds hard to believe.
Lucky she has the pictures to prove it.
When the captain of the New York Yankees calls you over to his car, it doesn’t matter if the light has turned green. Traffic on a Scanton corner waited Sunday morning while Derek Jeter snapped photos with Prudente and three friends.
When the passenger window rolled down and he called them over, she was thrilled. The Scott Township resident had been waiting at the Hilton Scranton and Conference Center since 7 a.m. Sunday, hoping Jeter might be staying there.
