Maybe the fourth time will be the charm.

Derek Jeter’s latest comeback attempt moved forward Tuesday when he played a second simulated game in as many days in Tampa.

He also ran the bases for the first time since suffering a strained right calf the latest setback in his injury-riddled season.

“Everything was good so we’ll see how everything is [Wednesday]” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of the shortstop who ran from home to first and home to second on balls he put in play. “I know there’s no simulated game but I think there’s a workout with him running the bases.”

Girardi remains hesitant to divulge much about what the Yankees intend to do with Jeter but he did not rule out a possible return to the Yankees when they play the Rays in St. Petersburg Fla. on Friday.

“There’s a plan in place” Girardi said during a doubleheader sweep over the Blue Jays. “I’m not going to reveal the plan until we get there.”

When asked if there was a chance Jeter might be in the lineup Friday Girardi said: “I’m not sure.”
