Yankees' Jeter abandons rehab work to undergo exam on ankle

CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter has left the team's minor league complex in Florida and gone for a medical exam on his injured left ankle.

Jeter went to see Dr. Robert Anderson, who operated on the All-Star shortstop's left ankle in Charlotte, N.C., after it was broken last October.

New York manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that the exam was not scheduled.

The 38-year-old Jeter was hurt in the opener of the AL Championship Series. He played sparingly in spring training and started the season doing recovery work at the team's complex in Tampa, Fla.
