Derek Jeter’s first rehab game is in the books.

According to the official Twitter account of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the veteran shortstop finished 0-for-2 with a walk and fielded the one ball that was hit to him at shortstop on Saturday night against the Phillies’ International League affiliate out of Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania.

Jeter played five innings on defense and reported no issues at all with his surgically-repaired left ankle.

He told reporters afterward that he would be playing in games at Yankee Stadium right now if it were up to him, and there is still a decent chance that he could be activated before the All-Star break.
