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

The New York Yankees captain, coming off a down season, worked in a batting cage Wednesday 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 on Thursday at the Yankees' minor league complex.

Jeter started on-field drills two weeks ago.

Also, new Yankees catcher Russell Martin also worked with Long and had a throwing session in the outfield.
