TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter resumed hitting and fielding drills Friday for the first time since mid-April, a day after receiving medically clearance to increase his rehabilitation program for a broken left ankle.

Jeter hit off a tee and took swings at underhand soft toss in an indoor cage before fielding 13 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt and 23 more at deep shortstop. He made throws to first on some of the grounders hit to him on the grass.

Says Jeter: "They gave the green light, so that's encouraging."
