TORONTO (AP) — Derek Jeter has returned to the New York Yankees’ lineup, going 0-for-3 with a walk while batting second and playing shortstop in Monday’s game against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Jeter broke his left ankle in the AL championship series last October and missed the first 91 games this year.

Since then, the 13-time All-Star has twice been forced back on the DL, first with a strained right quadriceps and more recently with a strained right calf, allowing him to appear in just five games all season before tonight.
