An ankle injury suffered last postseason has kept Derek Jeter out for the entire 2013 season.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been medically cleared to resume full baseball activities and running on his surgically repaired left ankle.

The Yankees said Thursday that Jeter was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., and that he is continuing to heal. He received clearance to progress into baseball activities and running.

The 13-time All-Star hasn't played this season after breaking his left ankle in the playoffs last fall and having surgery. Jeter sustained another fracture during his rehabilitation, and isn't expected back until after the All-Star break in mid-July.
