TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Derek Jeter is set to rejoin the Yankees on Monday in his return from a calf injury.
The shortstop said Thursday he will play minor league rehab games Saturday and Sunday at Double-A Trenton and be with the Yankees for a series in Cleveland.
Jeter said after working out at the Yankees' minor league complex that he feels good and is "ready to get out of here."
Jeter is six hits shy 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.
Jeter had been eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.
