New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been cleared to begin his rehab assignment with a Triple-A affiliate, the team announced Friday.

He will join the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders tomorrow and is scheduled to play at least five innings.

Jeter has not played at all this season. He broke his left ankle in the opener of the American League Championship Series on Oct. 13. After surgery, he played just five spring training games because of soreness in the ankle and a new break was discovered on April 18.

Jeter ran the bases this week after putting the ball in play during simulated at-bats for the first time.  He is expected to rejoin the Yankees after the All-Star break.

"I'm anxious to be playing in games," Jeter said Thursday. "When they tell me to play, I'll play."
