Derek Jeter Is Fat Now (Photos)

Derek Jeter broke his ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS, an injury that required surgery. Since that surgery, the Yankee captain has been in a walking boot and told to remain in a “non weight-bearing” situation by his doctors, meaning no lower body workouts and considerably less options at the gym. Still: damn, Derek Jeter.

The newly-doughy playboy was spotted outside a South Beach hotel, and his extra padding inspired this lead from the New York Post:

The ankle we knew about. The gut, not so much.

Not cool, New York Post. El Capitán will surely emerge from his walking boot a lithe and agile specimen, ready to return to the concrete jungle and his habit of night time conquistador-ing. In fact, when this nightmare is over, he’ll probably have sex with your girlfriend, New York Post, then send her a nice gift basket.

For now, though, he’s… pretty fat.
