(AP) New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will play start playing in minor league games on Saturday as he works his way back from an ankle injury.


The team announced on Friday that Jeter, who hasn't played this season due to a broken left ankle, has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment and is scheduled to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees captain is scheduled to play at least five innings in Saturday's game.


Jeter broke his ankle in the opener of the AL championship series on Oct. 13. After surgery, he played five spring training games because of soreness. A new break was discovered on April 18.


On Friday at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., Jeter took six simulated at-bats against minor league pitchers and ran the bases after putting the ball in play. He also did one of his signature jump throws to first after fielding a grounder in the hole during defensive drills.
