A small step for Jeter

TAMPA — Yankees SS Derek Jeter slightly increased his baseball activities by fielding grounders hit directly at him.

Jeter and injured teammate Eduardo Nunez took grounders on the outfield grass Monday at the Yankees' minor-league complex. Jeter also continued playing catch.

The 13-time All-Star hasn't played this season after breaking his left ankle in the playoffs last year and having surgery. He sustained another fracture during his rehabilitation and isn't expected back until after the All-Star break.

DRAFT SIGNINGS: The Royals signed their first-round pick, Stephen F. Austin OF Hunter Dozier, for $2.2 million. And the Rangers signed both of their first-round picks, Oral Roberts RHP Alex "Chi-Chi" Gonzalez and high school SS Travis Demeritte.

STANTON BACK: Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton was reinstated from the disabled list after missing five weeks with a strained hamstring and was in the starting lineup.

PEREZ PLEA: Indians two-time All-Star closer Chris Perez and his wife pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor possession charges after marijuana was mailed to their suburban Ohio home in their dog's name.

GRACE RELEASED: Former Diamondbacks television analyst and Cubs 1B Mark Grace was released from a Phoenix jail after completing a four-month DUI sentence under a work-release program.

ANGELS: CF Peter Bourjos was activated from the 15-day disabled list, a move that will shift All-Star Mike Trout to left when Bourjos is in the lineup. Bourjos missed 38 games with a left hamstring strain.

BLUE JAYS: RHP Chien-Ming Wang agreed to a minor-league contract and is expected to be called up to start tonight.

METS: Top RHP prospect Zack Wheeler is expected to be called up to start one game in a doubleheader at Atlanta on June 18.

ROCKIES: RHP Jon Garland, who had a 5.82 ERA in 12 starts, was designated for assignment. He could soon be replaced in the rotation by veteran RHP Roy Oswalt, who has a 2.88 ERA in four starts at Double-A Tulsa.

TWINS: OF Aaron Hicks went on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. OF Oswaldo Arcia will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester today.
