TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ New York Yankees outfielder Darryl Strawberry started the next phase of his comeback from colon cancer surgery and lingering knee problems Tuesday.

Strawberry went through a conditioning workout and will add batting practice on Wednesday as part of his extended spring training program.

Strawberry is scheduled to join the Yankees' Triple-A team in Columbus after completing chemotherapy. Strawberry said the weekly treatments will be completed on April 16.
