Girardi affirms Monday as Jeter's target date

ST. PETERSBURG -- The Yankees expect to activate shortstop Derek Jeter and have him in the lineup for their game on Monday against the Blue Jays in Toronto, manager Joe Girardi said on Saturday.

Jeter went 1-for-3 with a single on Saturday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in what the Yankees expect will be the third and final Minor League rehabilitation game of this most recent stint. Jeter played seven innings at shortstop.

"That's the plan," Girardi said. "As long as everything goes OK [on Saturday, Sunday] is probably just a little workout."

Including Saturday's game, Jeter went 3-for-9 with two runs scored, a double, one RBI and a walk in his three games during this stint at Triple-A. The captain has played in just five big league games this season due to left ankle, right quadriceps and right calf injuries.
