CINCINNATI -- Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is a few days away from getting back on the fields at the team's training complex in Tampa, Fla.
Manager Joe Girardi said that the 36-year-old Jeter is moving closer to testing his recovery from a Grade 1 strain of his right calf.
"He's still doing treatment, he's doing some functional stuff," Girardi said. "He'll start doing baseball activities in the next couple of days."
Girardi said that the team will soon discuss if Jeter, who is six hits shy of 3,000, would require a Minor League rehab game before returning.
Jeter is eligible to come off the disabled list on June 29, the middle game of a three-game Interleague series with the Brewers. From there, the Yankees visit the Mets (July 1-3) and the Indians (July 4-6).
