Via Erik Boland: Derek Jeter continues to hit in the batting cage and field ground balls in Tampa as he rehabs from left ankle surgery, and he’s expected to begin running when position players report in a few weeks. “I’m right where I need to be,” said the Cap’n. Pitchers and catchers are due to report next Tuesday, but position players don’t have to show up until next Saturday, February 16th. I’m going to be worried about a possible setback until Jeter is completely cleared by doctors, but so far so good.
