Derek Jeter injury: Yankees SS goes 0-for-2 in 1st rehab game
Jeter, 39, will DH for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Sunday, and the team has not ruled out bringing him back before the All Star Break.
Saturday was Jeter's first rehab game since breaking his ankle two times, and was a major step towards him getting back to the Bronx.
Jeter's rehab comes at the same time as third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who has been playing in the lower minors while trying to get back in game-shape.
In the absence of Jeter, the Yankees have been using options such as Eduardo Nunez and Alberto Gonzalez at shortstop. Nunez is batting .217 with a .588 OPS in 2013, and Gonzalez has just six hits in 29 at-bats for the Yankees, and has done so over nine games.
