Jeter works out in Florida

Monday - 4/15/2013, 7:10pm  ET

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is performing limited on-field work at the team's minor league complex in Florida as part of a rehabilitation program for a left ankle injury.

Jeter took five rounds of batting practice on Monday. He also fielded 21 grounders at the normal shortstop position, which was a decreased total from workouts last Wednesday and Friday.

The Yankees captain did straight line running in the outfield. The 13-time All-Star ran last week from first to third on the grass just behind the infield dirt.

Jeter hasn't played since appearing in a minor league spring training game as a designated hitter on March 23, when the ankle he broke in Game 1 of the AL championship series in October bothered him while running.

Placed on the disabled list March 31, there's still no timetable on when Jeter will be activated.
