Derek Jeter spent 45 minutes at the Yankees' training complex Friday while he awaits more rehab for another ankle injury.

The 38-year-old shortstop was wearing sneakers when he left the minor league facility, where he talked with the training staff. When asked about his disappointment, he said: "Of course."

Jeter was not wearing a boot or walking with a limp.

Yankees captain Derek Jeter traveled to Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday to see his ankle surgeon after a CT scan showed a small crack in the area of his previous ankle fracture.

The All-Star shortstop and future Hall of Famer suffered a major ankle break during the 2012 ALCS. He underwent surgery and has been working to get back on the active roster.

General Manager Brian Cashman said Jeter has been having ankle issues during his rehab training at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa.

Cashman, calling the new injury a "setback," said Jeter won't be back until after the All-Star break.

He said Jeter will not need surgery for the new break, but will need to wait four to eight weeks for the bone to heal befire resuming rehab and training.

"Clearly he hasn't done anything wrong," Cashman said said. "He was cleared to play. ... so this is a new fracture, but a small one. That's I guess the only good part. They kept saying the word 'small.'"

Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix have shared shortstop duties in Jeter's absence.

Cashman said he does not expect to trade for another shortstop, the AP reported.
