New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has resumed on-field hitting, as he took batting practice and ran the bases for the second consecutive day, according to The Associated Press.

Jeter took 32 swings during batting practice while at the Yankees' minor league complex in Tampa. It was the second day in a row the captain ran the bases, as he went smoothly from first to third and then third to first, while running at less than full speed.
Beyond his time in the batting cage and on the base paths, Jeter also fielded 45 ground balls at shortstop, while throwing to first base for the first time since his setback.
Jeter was placed on the disabled list on March 31. He was initially expected to start the regular season with the Yankees, but he suffered a setback while recovering from the broken ankle he sustained last postseason.
While this is all certainly progress and can be considered good news, there's still no time frame for Jeter's return. There has been speculation of a May 1 target, but neither Jeter nor the Yankees have mentioned this.
