Jeter runs outside in next step of his recovery

TAMPA — Yankees SS Derek Jeter, out all season with a broken left ankle, ran outdoors Thursday for the first time in two months.

Jeter called the outing at Steinbrenner Field "the last step" before playing in minor-league games, adding he hopes to run the bases soon.

"Everything is good," he said. "No problems whatsoever. I've done everything else. It's a constant progression."

There is no date yet for Jeter, 39, to begin a minor-league rehab stint.

Jeter, who has been taking batting practice and fielding grounders, broke the ankle during the ALCS and had surgery. Another fracture was discovered during his first rehab in April.

Lester exits: Boston LHP Jon Lester left Thursday's game against the Jays with an apparent injury in the eighth inning. He allowed back-to-back singles, and after running the count to 3-and-0, manager John Farrell trotted on and Lester came out. There was no immediate word on the problem.

Angels: RHP Tommy Hanson went on the DL (tightness in right forearm).

Indians: RHP Chris Perez, out since May 27 (sore shoulder), was activated, and the team said he will resume his role as closer. While he was out, he and his wife were charged with misdemeanor drug possession.

Nationals: LF Bryce Harper, out since May 26 (bursitis in left knee), went 2-for-4 with a triple, homer and two RBIs at Double-A Harrisburg. Manager Davey Johnson hopes Harper can be activated Monday.

Orioles: RHP Freddy Garcia, 37, accepted a minor-league assignment and will report to Triple A.

Rockies: INF Reid Brignac signed a minor-league deal. The Rockies traded the former Ray to the Yankees in May. The Yankees released him last week.

Daulton tumors: Former All-Star C Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with two brain tumors and will have surgery next week. Daulton, a longtime Pinellas County resident who played 14½ of his 15 seasons for the Phillies and also is a former Rays coach, has hosted a radio show in Philadelphia for the past four years.
