Derek Jeter received treatment on his sore left ankle during Monday’s offday, but general manager Brian Cashman said there was nothing new to report on the Captain’s status.
When the Yankees shut Jeter down Sunday morning, they said he would take Sunday and Monday off before being reevaluated Tuesday. The Yankees have three games left in Florida before breaking camp and heading north for exhibition games in Washington and West Point, but Jeter is expected to remain in Tampa to continue his rehab program.

Jeter took four at-bats in a minor-league game Saturday, but his ankle was too sore to play again Sunday. The Yankees are planning to open the season with Jeter on the disabled list — it’s official yet — and while Cashman said April 6 is the target date for his return, it’s unlikely that Jeter will be able to play enough shortstop before then to make that date a reality.
Jeter has played five official games this spring, two of them as the Yankees’ designated hitter. He has played a total of 13 innings at shortstop in the other three games, but this latest setback could be a sign that the 38-year-old’s ankle isn’t healthy enough for him to be back at his position.
