        === Ailing Jeter has CT scan on left ankle, results negative ===
 
 Bronx,  NY (Sports Network)  - A preliminary CT scan came back negative on the
 troublesome  left ankle of Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who was removed from
 Saturday's 13-9 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
 
 After  recording  an RBI  single in the  sixth inning, Jeter  was lifted for a
 pinch-runner.  Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he "didn't like the way he was
 running."
 
 The  Yankees  seem concerned  about Jeter's surgically  repaired ankle and are
 sending  the results  of the  CT scan  to Dr.  Robert Anderson,  who performed
 Jeter's ankle surgery in October, as an extra precaution.
 
 The  39-year-old has been  limited to just 17 games this season, slowed by two
 fractures  to  the ankle since October.  He was additionally hampered by right
 calf injuries.
 
 He  missed  the first three months  of the season because of the complications
 with the ankle and is batting .190 with a home run and seven RBI.
