TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Yankees captain Derek Jeter is in the starting lineup for the first time since ankle surgery last fall.
Jeter was listed as the designated hitter in Saturday's spring training game against Atlanta.
The 38-year-old broke his left ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit last Oct. 13 and had surgery a week later.
Phil Hughes threw 10 pitches in his first mound session since being diagnosed three weeks ago with a bulging disk in his upper back. The right-hander said he felt great and would have a 25-to-30 pitch bullpen session Monday
New York relievers David Robertson (shoulder) and David Aardsma (groin) also had bullpen sessions.
CC Sabathia, the expected opening-day starter, is to pitch in a simulated game Sunday. He had offseason left elbow bone spur surgery.
