Derek Jeter joins A-Rod taking at_bats

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Derek Jeter has joined teammate Alex Rodriguez in hitting against minor league pitching.

Coming back from a broken left ankle, Jeter had an opposite-field single to right in six at_bats Friday against a minor league right-hander. The Yankees captain said it was his second day of facing live pitching.

Rodriguez, who had hip surgery in January, had two doubles and a single in five plate appearances, and he also ran the bases after putting the ball in play.

The Yankees have not announced a date for when A-Rod will begin a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment, but running bases during the at-bat situation normally is among the final preparation steps.

Rodriguez also had a post-hitting baserunning session with catcher Francisco Cervelli, who caught during A-Rod's at_bats and resumed taking on-field batting practice. Cervelli is rehabilitating from a broken hand.

Rodriguez didn't stop to talk with reporters when leaving the Yankees minor league complex.

Jeter hasn't played this season after breaking an ankle in the playoffs last October and having surgery. Another fracture was discovered during his first rehab in April.

The Yankees expect both Jeter and Rodriguez to return to the active roster after the All-Star break.
