Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he has been cleared to start baseball activity as part of his recovery and rehab from a broken ankle.

Jeter, who suffered the injury diving for a ground ball in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against Detroit on Oct. 13, said Wednesday that he is on track to start in the Yankees' season-opener on April 1.

Jeter, 38, said he will follow his usual pre-spring training program, including field workouts later this month.

"I've got the OK to start," Jeter said. "But I don't start until next week or the week after, anyway. In terms of baseball activity, I'm right where I need to be."
