TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Derek Jeter has run for the first time since breaking his left ankle in October.

 

The 38-year-old New York Yankees captain jogged on a treadmill Monday at the Yankees' minor league complex.

 

Jeter says he's been given the OK to do all activities on the leg he broke during Game 1 of the AL championship series against Detroit on Oct. 13. He had surgery a week later.

 

Jeter began his third week of workouts on a baseball field. He hit in a batting cage, fielded grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt at shortstop and threw in the outfield.

 

The 13-time All-Star expects to be in New York's opening-day lineup against Boston on April 1.
