Rehabbing Jeter works out in Florida

Published Apr. 15, 2013 1:00 a.m. ET

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is performing limited on-field work at the team's minor-league complex in Florida as part of a rehabilitation program for a left ankle injury.

Jeter took five rounds of batting practice on Monday. He also fielded 21 grounders at the normal shortstop position, which was a decreased total from workouts last Wednesday and Friday.

The Yankees captain did straight line running in the outfield. The 13-time All-Star ran last week from first to third on the grass just behind the infield dirt.

Jeter hasn't played since appearing in a minor-league spring training game as a designated hitter on March 23, when the ankle he broke in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in October bothered him while running.


Placed on the disabled list March 31, there's still no timetable on when Jeter will be activated.
