Yankees SS Jeter out until after AS break

NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees captain Derek Jeter will be sidelined until after the All-Star break because of a new fracture in his injured left ankle.

Jeter was hurt last October in the opener of the AL championship series. He played sparingly in spring training and started the season rehabbing at the team's minor league complex in Tampa, Fla.

After three straight days of workouts, the 38-year-old shortstop went to Charlotte, N.C., and was examined Thursday by Dr. Robert Anderson, who operated last fall.

``They did a new CT scan which revealed a small crack in the area of the previous injury, so we have to back off and let that heal,'' Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said before New York played Arizona. ``This is obviously a setback. In terms of speculating on when we might see Derek back with us, we'd be looking at some time after the All-Star break.''

Jeter is among four All-Stars missing from the Yankees' lineup, joined by third baseman Alex Rodriguez (hip), first baseman Mark Teixeira (wrist) and outfielder Curtis Granderson (arm).

Cashman did not think Jeter did too much too soon in his rehabilitation.

``Clearly he hasn't done anything wrong,'' the GM said. ``He was cleared to play. This is the third CT scan he's had. His prior two CT scans showed the healing and 100 percent healing. He wasn't cleared for the baseball activities and cleared to play until he had 100 percent healing, so this is a new fracture, but a small one. That's I guess the only good part. They kept saying the word small. But it's a setback, so it's not a good situation.''

Jeter will not require surgery for the new break, Cashman said after speaking with Anderson.

``He told me 95 percent of the people that have this, they come back from it fine. You just have to back off,'' Cashman said.
