Shortstop Derek Jeter is going to make his season debut for he New York Yankees on Thursday, according to FoxSports.com.

The 39-year old Jeter has missed the entire 2013 season, after suffering a broken ankle in last year’s American League Championship Series. He did play in five spring training games this year, but was put back on the shelf, after a new break in the ankle was discovered.

The report says that Jeter, who has been playing in rehab games in the Yankees’ minor league system this week, will start for New York, at either shortstop or designated hitter, against the Kansas City Royals.

The Yankees are currently 49-42, and in fourth place in the American League East, six games behind the first-place Boston Red Sox.

Jeter is coming off of an outstanding 2012 season, one in which he hit a .316, with 15 home runs, and 58 RBI’s.

Over his 18-year MLB career, Jeter has accumulated 3,304 hits, while hitting a .313, with 255 homers, 1,254 RBI’s, and 348 stolen bases.
