Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has had more tests on his surgically repaired left ankle and it's not certain when he will return to the lineup.

Jeter was pulled for a pinch-runner after hitting an RBI single in the sixth inning of a 13-9 loss to Boston on Saturday.

Jeter went to a hospital for a precautionary CT scan. The team said the preliminary results of the scan were negative.

Jeter has missed most of the season while recovering from a broken left ankle in the playoffs last year. He also has been slowed by a strained right calf.

The 39-year-old team captain is hitting .190 in 17 games.

New York general manager Brian Cashman says that if the Yankees weren't pushing for a playoff spot, Jeter could simply take a few days off to rest.
