TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees' shortstop Derek Jeter has resumed onfield work.

The Yankees' captain threw for the first time Tuesday, including long toss, since going on the 15-day disabled list last week because of a strained right calf.

Jeter also worked out indoors and had treatment at New York's spring training complex. He's six hits away from 3,000 in his career.

Jeter limped off the field during a game on June 13 against Cleveland. It's the first time since 2003 he's been on the 15-day DL.

Also, right-handed starter Bartolo Colon, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, has started a throwing program that included long toss on Tuesday.

Injured relievers Rafael Soriano (right elbow inflammation) and Damaso Marte (left shoulder surgery) played catch.
