Jeter missed New York's first 13 spring training games and was the Yankees' designated hitter and leadoff batter Saturday against Atlanta. Jeter received a partial standing ovation from the crowd at Steinbrenner Field in the first inning, then singled between shortstop and third base against left-hander Mike Minor.
Jeter was forced at second base on Ichiro Suzuki's grounder, sliding into second base on a play that was not close.
The 38-year-old broke his left ankle lunging for a grounder against Detroit last Oct. 13 and had surgery a week later.
