TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter could start running on the field in the next couple days for the first time since ankle surgery and still expects to be ready for opening day.

The captain met with reporters on Sunday, which was the reporting day for New York's position players.

The 38-year-old Jeter broke his left ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit on Oct. 13, and had surgery a week later.

The 13-time All-Star thinks he will play in his first exhibition game sometime after the next couple weeks.

Jeter says the ankle has healed, and that the challenge now is to get back into baseball shape.
