Yankees GM targets March 10 for Jeter's first spring game

The SportsXchange

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is expected to make his first appearance in a Spring Training game on or about March 10, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told

"He's kind of doing everything, but we're not ready to run him out there for game activity," Cashman said, according to the report. "When we do, I think we'll start him at DH and then expand."

On Saturday, Jeter, 38, ran on the infield dirt for the first time since breaking his left ankle in last year's American League Championship Series.

Jeter did not pinpoint a date for his return, but said he expects to ready to play on Opening Day on April 1.

"I was a couple of weeks behind what everyone else was doing when I first got here, so on that schedule I don't see any reason why not," Jeter said. "I don't think anything's set in stone, but it seems like it's attainable."

Jeter had plates and screws inserted in his ankle when he had surgery last October.
