TORONTO >> Derek Jeter was activated off the disabled list before the New York Yankees’ game today at Toronto, starting at shortstop and batting second against the Blue Jays.

Jeter broke his left ankle in the AL championship series last October and missed the first 91 games this year. Since then, the 13-time All-Star has twice been forced back on the DL, first with a strained right quadriceps and more recently with a strained right calf.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he will monitor Jeter’s status on a daily basis and conceded that the 39-year-old may need the occasional day off over the final few weeks of the season.

Jeter is batting .211 (4 for 19) with one home run and two RBIs in five games.

Today’s game marked the first time this season that both Jeter and Alex Rodriguez were in New York’s starting lineup.
