TAMPA, Fla. - Derek Jeter has added a new dimension to his pre-spring training workout.

The Yankees captain, coming off a subpar season, worked in a batting cage yesterday with hitting coach Kevin Long.

The 36-year-old Jeter has a career batting average of .314, but hit just .270 last season. Long and Jeter are scheduled to have another session today at the Yankees' minor-league complex.

Jeter started on-field drills two weeks ago.
