After playing in his second game of the spring as a designated hitter, Derek Jeter expects to start at shortstop on Wednesday night against the Phillies at Steinbrenner Field.

"That's the plan," Jeter said after going 0-for-2 on Monday.

Jeter, 38, is returning from a broken left ankle sufferend in Game 1 of the ALCS in early October. Later in October, he had surgery to repair it.

Jeter said he won't know for certain if he will start Wednesday until he sees how he feels Tuesday. If he does play short, Joe Girardi thought it would be for four or five innings.
