NEW YORK (AP) Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has had surgery to repair a broken left ankle.

Dr. Robert Anderson operated Saturday in Charlotte, N.C. The Yankees said complete recovery for their 38-year-old captain is expected to take four-to-five months.

Jeter was injured Oct. 13 in the 12th inning of the AL championship series against Detroit while trying to field a grounder. The Tigers went on to sweep the Yankees.
