The 38-year-old New York Yankees captain fielded 55 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt at shortstop Monday at the team's minor-league complex. He also hit in a batting cage.
"Everything went well," Jeter says.
The 13-time All-Star expects to start in New York's opener against Boston on April 1. This is the time of year Jeter usually starts his onfield pre-spring training routine.
Jeter broke the ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit on Oct. 13. He underwent surgery a week later, and the Yankees said recovery time would be four to five months.
Jeter has been walking on an underwater treadmill at the team's facility since early January.
