Derek Jeter: Offseason "terrible"

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Derek Jeter had a miserable offseason he would rather forget. Not only did the New York Yankees captain not win another World Series ring, his season ended when he had to be helped off the field because of a broken ankle.

"Absolutely terrible," Jeter said Sunday, the spring training reporting day for New York's positions players. The 38-year-old broke his left ankle lunging for a grounder in the AL championship series opener against Detroit on Oct. 1, and had surgery a week later. He could start running on a field in the next couple days and expects to be ready for opening day against Boston on April 1.
