Jeter sees limited action in rehab

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.

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.
