THE BRONX - Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned home to a standing ovation today after a nine-month hiatus due to an injured ankle.

Today marked Jeter's first performance on the field this season, having missed the first 91 games.

Since his injury, five different shortstops have played for the Yankees.

Jeter returned to his usual second batting spot as a designated hitter and managed an infield single during his first at-bat, proving his ankle was well healed. He ended up going 1-4 for the day, with one RBI groundout.

The Yankees finish off the first half of their season in the Bronx this weekend with a three-game series versus the Minnesota Twins, starting tomorrow. There is no word yet if Jeter will be in the lineup then.
