NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter is back at Yankee Stadium, though he’s still not sure when he’ll be playing there next.

The New York captain temporarily relocated his rehab from Tampa, Fla., to the Bronx as he recovers from his broken left ankle. He said before Saturday’s game against the Rays that he wanted to “break things up” and be around the team.

He was taking batting practice Saturday and is doing everything but running outside. The shortstop says he’s not sure when he’ll start that last step.

“I would assume in the next couple days,” he said.

The Yankees have expected a return sometime after the All-Star break in mid-July.

“Everything’s been going as good as it can go up to this point,” Jeter said.

Jeter hasn’t played this season after breaking his ankle in the ALCS opener Oct. 13. After surgery, he played just five spring training games because of soreness. A new break was discovered April 18.
