Yankees SS Jeter exits, CT scan on ankle negative

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.
