 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter thinks he is close to playing in minor league rehab games.
The Yankees captain says he is now doing everything needed before beginning a rehab assignment.
On Wednesday, Jeter ran the bases after putting the ball in play during simulated at-bats for the first time since a second break was found in his left ankle. He is expected to rejoin the Yankees after the All-Star break.
Jeter has been out all season. He broke his ankle in the opener of the AL championship series on Oct. 13. After surgery, he played just five spring training games because of soreness. A new break was discovered on April 18.
Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson, out with a broken knuckle on his left hand, took around 15 swings in an indoor pool with a lightweight pipe, the first step in the process to resume hitting.
