TAMPA, Fla. — Yankees captain Derek Jeter is resigned to starting the season on the disabled list for the first time since 2001.


Jeter is undergoing treatment for his sore left ankle, still recovering from surgery last October. His last game action came as a designated hitter Saturday in a minor league exhibition.


He broke the ankle in the opening game of last year’s AL championship series.


Jeter is expected to join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the disabled list at the start of the season and could be activated for the April 6 game at Detroit. He will meet with team officials to finalized his rehab schedule..
