The Yankees originally had hoped Derek Jeter would be activated when first eligible to come off the disabled list on Saturday, but team officials continue to claim that no target date has been set for the All-Star shortstop’s return from the ankle injury he suffered during the playoffs last October.
Jeter did his rehab work indoors Wednesday due to rain in Tampa, where he has remained since suffering a setback in his comeback from surgery on March 19.
One report suggested May 1 as a possible target for Jeter barring any further setbacks, but a team source said no definitive timetable has been established since the Yanks’ captain currently is not playing in minor-league games.

Hiroki Kuroda’s intention is to make his next start, but he won’t know if he’ll be able to until he tests his bruised right middle finger in a bullpen session Friday in Detroit. Kuroda was struck on the right hand by a Shane Victorino line drive in the second inning of the Yankees’ 7-4 loss Wednesday to Boston.
“I have to say I don’t feel normal. I feel a little discomfort there. But it was a batted ball that hit my hand. So that’s natural,” Kuroda said through his interpreter. “The bottom line is I’m going to try to make my next start (Monday in Cleveland). . . . At this stage I won’t know until I throw (Friday).”
