Jeter's self-diagnosis: Food poisoning

TAMPA, Fla. - Derek Jeter, looking healthy, showed up in the Yankees' clubhouse shortly before 9 a.m. Friday and proclaimed himself recovered from a one-day illness that had caused him to be sent home from camp Thursday.

"I think I had food poisoning,'' Jeter said. "I didn't have the flu.''

Jeter said he became ill after eating shellfish at a local restaurant. "I'm not gonna give you details. I'm sure you can figure it out,'' he said. "I'm good now.''

With outdoor work canceled because of heavy rain, Jeter - who did not make the trip to Viera for Friday's rained-out game against the Nationals - took part in stretching drills and hit in the indoor cage. He will be part of the split squad traveling to Lakeland for Saturday's game against the Tigers.
