 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Derek Jeter has joined teammate Alex Rodriguez in hitting against minor league pitching.
Coming back from a broken left ankle, Jeter had an opposite-field single to right in six at-bats Friday against a minor league right-hander. The Yankees captain said it was his second day of facing live pitching.
Rodriguez, who had hip surgery in January, had two doubles and a single in five plate appearances, and he also ran the bases after putting the ball in play.
The Yankees have not announced a date for when A-Rod will begin a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment, but running bases during the at-bat situation normally is among the final preparation steps.
