TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has
run the bases for the first time, a key step in his rehabilitation
program for a strained right calf.
The Yankees captain ran from home to first four times, first to
second three times and first to third once on Tuesday at the team’s
minor league complex.
There is no date yet for when Jeter, on the 15-day disabled list
for the first time since 2003, will rejoin the lineup.
Jeter is six hits shy of 3,000, a chase that’s been on hold
since he got hurt June 13.
