TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he's been cleared to start baseball activity in his recovery from a broken left ankle.

The 38-year-old team captain reiterated Wednesday that he is on track to be in New York's starting lineup for the opener on April 1.

Jeter won't take the field for workouts until later this month. The 13-time All-Star said that is his normal pre-spring training routine.

``I've got the OK to start,'' Jeter said before a launch party for his Turn 2 Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. ``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.''

Jeter broke his ankle lunging for a grounder in Game 1 of the AL championship series against Detroit on Oct. 13. He had surgery a week later and the Yankees said recovery time would be four to five months.
