Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter took batting practice Wednesday in Tampa, Florida for the first time since a new crack was discovered in his surgically-repaired left ankle back in mid-April.
Jeter had no issues during Wednesday’s workout. He has been doing light fielding drills for the past week and is on track to return to the Yankees’ active roster shortly after the mid-July All-Star break.
Yankees shortstops have batted .205/.272/.268 with one home run so far this season. Jeter, who will turn 39 years old later this month, had a .316/.362/.429 batting line and 15 home runs in 2012.
