ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yankees captain Derek Jeter says he will be ready to play when eligible to come off the disabled list Saturday.
Jeter ran the bases before the series finale at Texas on Thursday. The shortstop has also been taking batting practice and grounders this week.
Jeter has played only one game this season. He returned from offseason surgery on his left ankle July 11, and hit the first pitch he saw for an infield single. But he strained his right quadriceps in that game, putting him back on the DL.
The 39-year-old Jeter broke his ankle in the opener of the AL championship series last October. A second fracture was discovered while he was rehabbing, delaying his return. He played only four minor league rehabilitation games before rejoining the Yankees.
