Derek Jeter exited his final game Sunday in the third inning after delivering an infield single for an RBI in his second at-bat.
Jeter hit the ball much harder his first time up, but it was right at shortstop Jemile Weeks for a lineout. The second at-bat was a chopper that bounced high off home plate, making a play impossible for third baseman Garin Cecchini. Manager Joe Girardi signaled and asked Jeter if he wanted to come out, and Jeter replied that he was done. The hit was the 3,465th of his Hall of Fame career. He finishes up sixth on the all-time list. Sep 28 - 2:32 PM

Derek Jeter is in the designated hitter spot and batting second in his final game Sunday.

It's the same position he was in Saturday. Jeter was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning of that game and is likely to also exit Sunday's game early so that he can receive a proper send-off.

Derek Jeter went 1-for-2 with an infield single Saturday against the Red Sox.

Making the start out of the DH spot, Jeter struck out swinging in the first inning before hitting an infield chopper for a single in his second at-bat. With the Red Sox winning in a blowout, the 40-year-old was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the fifth, much to the displeasure of those in attendance at Fenway Park. His 20-year major league career will come to an end on Sunday.

Derek Jeter said after Thursday's game that he will not play shortstop in Boston this weekend.

Not surprisingly, he wants Thursday's game at Yankee Stadium to be his last one at shortstop. Jeter will pinch-hit and/or serve as the designated hitter over the weekend.

Derek Jeter delivered a walk-off single in his final game at Yankee Stadium, helping the Yankees overcome the Orioles on Thursday.

It was a big game for Jeter, as he finished 2-for-5 with three RBI. He knocked in the Yanks' first run in the bottom of the first with an RBI single and later scored to tie the game up at 2-2. In the seventh, he put the Yankees ahead, hitting a bases-loaded grounder to J.J. Hardy who then threw the ball into right field, allowing two runs to score. Then, in the ninth, after David Robertson had allowed the Orioles to score three runs to tie the game, Jeter singled to right field in the bottom of the ninth to walk the Yankees off. Quite the storybook ending to his final game at Yankee Stadium. The Captain has had a down year at the plate, but has come on strong as of late, batting .342 (13-for-38) in his last nine games. Overall, he's hitting .255/.302/.312 with four home runs, 49 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.

Derek Jeter is slated to bat second and play shortstop Thursday against the Orioles.

The stage is set for Jeter's home finale, but the weather remains the big wild card. The tarp is on the field and there will be no batting practice, but the Yankees remain hopeful of getting the game in.
Sep 25 - 4:48 PM

Derek Jeter had his first three-RBI game of the season Monday in the win over the Orioles.

Jeter plated a run with a groundout in the third and then doubled in two in the fifth. With 10 hits in his last six games, he's going out on a higher note than it seemed he would a couple of weeks ago.
Sep 22 - 10:20 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Jeter now has back-to-back multi-hit games. He hasn't done that since July 28-29. His final homestand is off to a nice start. The 40-year-old shortstop is batting .252/.301/.305 during his final season in the majors.
Sep 19 - 10:11 PM

Derek Jeter homered for the first time in 158 at-bats on Thursday as the Yankees downed the Blue Jays.

Jeter took R.A. Dickey out to left field for his fourth homer of the season and first since August 1. The soon-to-retire shortstop ended an 0-for-28 skid on Wednesday, so he's been in the business of tying up some loose ends before the season's out. Jeter owns a .250/.299/.303 with 41 RBI.
Sep 18 - 9:52 PM

Derek Jeter snapped an 0-for-28 slump with a sixth-inning single in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Things haven't been looking so great as the 40-year-old shortstop winds down his career. Jeter singled and scored against Alex Cobb in the sixth inning, which proved to be the deciding factor in the game. Jeter sports a lackluster .249/.298/.297 slash line.
Sep 17 - 10:14 PM

Derek Jeter is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

Jeter is hitless in his last 24 at-bats -- the second-worst hitless streak of his career -- so perhaps a day off will do him some good. Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop.

Derek Jeter (elbow) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Jeter sat out the first game after being plunked on the elbow on Thursday night, but he managed to return for the nightcap. While that's good news, the 40-year-old is now hitting just .139 (5-for-36) this month and owns a measly .253/.301/.302 batting line in his final season.
Sep 12 - 10:49 PM

Derek Jeter (elbow) is sitting out the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Jeter was plunked on the left elbow by a pitch Thursday. Although X-rays were negative, he was not in the Yankees' clubhouse prior to the afternoon tilt. It's not clear whether he'll be ready to play in the second game of the doubleheader.
