Setback disappoints Jeter

TAMPA — Not wearing a boot and walking without a limp, SS Derek Jeter spent 45 minutes at the Yankees' training complex Friday while he awaits more rehab for another ankle injury.

"Of course," said the 38-year-old team captain when asked if he was disappointed with the setback in his recovery from a broken left ankle suffered in last season's playoffs. The new crack will keep him out until after the All-Star break, the team announced Thursday.

Jeter, who was wearing sneakers Friday, plans to talk about his injury with New York media next week.

postponements: Cold and wind in Chicago forced the postponement of the Twins' series opener against the White Sox, the third time this week bad weather has kept Minnesota off the field. No makeup date was announced. … Rain prevented the Dodgers-Orioles in Baltimore, and the game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader today (1 and 7:05) because it is the Dodgers' only visit to Camden Yards this season.

Can it, Rex: Orioles manager Buck Showalter, responding to Jets coach Rex Ryan's suggestion that the Orioles give up their home game and play on the road Sept. 5 so the Super Bowl champion Ravens can open in Baltimore, said: "I'd be a little more concerned about Nov. 24 when the Jets come here and try to figure out a way to beat the Ravens." Showalter added: "I try to stay out of things I don't know about. I would stay in what is my area of supposed expertise."

Blue Jays: Jose Bautista (sore back) returned to the lineup as the DH and homered against the Yankees.

Phillies: C Carlos Ruiz is day to day after getting hit on the left wrist by a pitch in an extended spring training game. X-rays were negative. Ruiz is suspended for the first 25 major-league games for testing positive for an amphetamine.

Rangers: Opening day starter Matt Harrison will have surgery Tuesday to repair a herniated disc and likely will be out until after the All-Star break.

Obituary: Mae Louise Allen Mays, the wife of Hall of Famer Willie Mays, died in her sleep in the San Francisco bay area after a 16-year battle with Alzheimer's disease, the Giants announced. She was 74.
