Wednesday night’s game may not have counted in the standings, but it was far from meaningless for the Yankees.

Nearly five months after he crumpled to the dirt with a broken left ankle, Derek Jeter was back at shortstop for the first time since he suffered the injury in the 12th inning of Game 1 of the ALCS.

“It was good to be out there again,” Jeter said. “Just getting back into game action, seeing things. It’s been a while. It’s like a normal spring training, being out there, readjusting to everything that’s going on.”

Jeter started and played four innings against the Phillies, going 0-for-2 with a walk.

“It seems right when he’s out there,” Joe Girardi said.

Jeter had little trouble fielding the one ball hit in his direction, flipping Ben Revere’s one-out grounder in the fourth inning to second base for a force play.

“You get nervous a little bit, until you get your first ground ball,” Jeter said. “But it’s usually that way. It’s going to take time moving around. It’s a little different when you’re in games as opposed to controlled practice.”
