Bombers bits

• Captain Derek Jeter was seen by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., and will not travel with the Yankees during the ALCS. The Yankees are waiting to learn if surgery will be necessary, though they continue to expect Jeter to be ready for Spring Training.

Robinson Cano's 0-for-29 skid -- snapped by a ninth-inning single off Phil Coke on Tuesday -- may have been a single-season playoff record, but he's not alone in Yankees history in weathering a rough October. Wade Boggs, Frank Crosetti, Whitey Ford and Dave Winfield each compiled 0-for-22 postseason streaks, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The MLB postseason record is 42 straight hitless at-bats by Mariners catcher Dan Wilson from 1995-2000.
