    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says injured shortstop Derek Jeter probably won't be ready for opening day.

    Cashman said Sunday it's "more likely than not" Jeter will start the regular season on the disabled list because of ankle soreness.

    Cashman says the Yankees' captain was a little sore Sunday, one day after getting four at-bats as the designated hitter in a minor league exhibition game.

    The 38-year-old Jeter received an anti-inflammatory injection Wednesday. He had surgery for a broken left ankle last October. Cashman says Jeter will not play in a minor league game for at least the next couple days.
