Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter threw for the third straight day Thursday as he rehabs a strained right calf muscle that landed him on the disabled list.
The Yankees’ captain has been working out at the team’s spring training complex. He could increase his on-the-field workout in the next couple days.
Also, right-hander Bartolo Colon and infielder Eric Chavez increased their onfield drills as they rehab injuries.
Colon, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, ran sprints in the outfield for the first time in addition to his third consecutive day of long toss. Chavez, out with a broken left foot, said he was fine after running from home to first around a half-dozen times.
