Here’s the latest from The Associated Press in Tampa, where Derek Jeter was rained out today but will move ahead with plans to rehab tomorrow in Trenton.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has completed the Florida part of his rehabilitation for a strained right calf.

Jeter spent 30 minutes indoors at the Yankees’ minor league complex on Friday. His final onfield session was canceled by rain.

The team captain is expected to start a two-game stint with Double-A Trenton Saturday night and rejoin the Yankees for a series in Cleveland on Monday.

Jeter is six hits short of 3,000. A return next week could put him on track to reach the milestone at Yankee Stadium during a four-game series against Tampa Bay from July 7-10. His bid to become the 28th major leaguer — and first with the Yankees — to get 3,000 hits has been on hold since he strained his right calf June 13 against the Indians.
