TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Yankees captain Derek Jeter plans to wait until teammate Alex Rodriguez addresses his latest off-the-field controversy before commenting on the matter.

The Miami New Times reported last week that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, near Rodriguez's offseason home.

The new public relations firm for the three-time AL MVP issued a statement denying the allegations.

``I don't comment on anyone until they speak first,'' Jeter said Monday. ``Let him address his situation before I comment on it. Let him speak first and then we'll talk about that.''

Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs from 2001-03. He had hip surgery last month and is expected to be sidelined until after the All-Star break.

Jeter started his second week of workouts on a baseball field after breaking his left ankle last October. The 38-year-old fielded 55 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt at shortstop at the team's minor league complex. He also hit in a batting cage.

The 13-time All-Star expects to start in New York's opener against Boston on April 1. He plans to start running later this month at spring training.

``Everything's been good,'' Jeter said. ``Everything's right where it needs to be. The goal is April 1st, that's when we start our season. I'm right where I need to be. I've been progressing just fine.''

Jeter broke the ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit on Oct. 13, and had surgery a week later.
