MOOSIC, Pa. (AP)

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter went 0 for 2 with a walk and a run scored in five innings for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday night in his third game back from an ankle injury.

Jeter tested the left ankle several times while playing the field for just the second time and was part of four defensive plays.

OUCH!

He fielded two grounders, caught one pick-off attempt at second base and tagged out a runner on a close fielder's choice call in which he took a throw from the catcher and had to drop to his knees to apply the tag.

Jeter reached on an error in the first inning, walked leading off the third and came around to score three batters later, and grounded out to third in the fifth.

It didn't take any time for Jeter to get action in the field. The first batter of the game hit a slow chopper out to short. The Yankees' captain mildly charged the ball and threw in time to get the out.

He fielded just one grounder in his only other rehab game in the field. The 39-year-old was also tested in his first at-bat hitting a chopper to short. His hustle down the line forced Rochester shortstop Doug Bernier to hurry the throw, which was in the dirt as Jeter reached on the error.

On a single to right by the next batter J.R. Murphy, Jeter sprinted to third and slid in safely. It was the second time in two games he went from first to third on a single. Brent Lillibridge the flied out to center, but the ball wasn't deep enough for Jeter to try to score.

Jeter walked in his second at-bat — his fourth base on balls in three games — then moved to second on a single and scored one out later on another single. He grounded out in his third trip to the plate and was replaced in the field by Walter Ibarra to start the sixth inning.

Jeter is expected to sit out Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's next game on Tuesday will next play on Wednesday.
