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. Sep 15 - 4:05 PM

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.

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.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi on Tuesday dismissed the possibility of dropping Derek Jeter in the batting order.

Jeter hit just .207/.226/.261 in August to drop his overall line to .261/.308/.312. Still it doesn't sound like he's going to be moved down from his usual No. 2 spot. "You look up and down our numbers and there's a lot of .240s and .230s," Girardi said. "I'm not so sure why he's the one that's necessarily picked on here. As I've said, this guy has been a money player his whole career, and we need him to be the last month."
Sep 2 - 8:05 PM

Derek Jeter went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Jeter is now batting .207 with four extra-base hits (including one home run) and a 14/2 K/BB ratio in 25 games this month and owns a meager .622 OPS in his farewell campaign. With the Yankees fighting to remain in playoff contention, it's hard to justify keeping him near the top of the lineup, though there's no indication that a change is coming.
Aug 30 - 3:45 PM

Derek Jeter went hitless in Tuesday's loss to the Astros, his eighth straight game without a run scored.

Jeter's line wouldn't make him look like such a liability if he were batting at the bottom of the Yankees order. From the second spot, though, he's quite a problem right now. He hasn't drawn a walk since July 28, and he's scored a total of five runs in the last month. For the season, he has just 38 runs scored and 32 RBI in 110 games.

Derek Jeter moved into sixth on MLB's all-time hits list with a single on Saturday against the Indians.

After tying Honus Wagner on Friday, Jeter took sole possession of sixth place with an infield single in the bottom of the sixth inning. He now sits at 3,431 hits for his career. Only Tris Speaker (3,515), Stan Musial (3,630), Hank Aaron (3,771), Ty Cobb (4,191), and Pete Rose (4,256) have more.
Aug 9 - 4:40 PM

Derek Jeter singled in the first inning Friday against the Indians to tie Honus Wagner for sixth on MLB's all-time hit list.

Jeter now sits at 3,430 hits for his career. Barring something unexpected, Wagner will be the final player that Jeter will pass prior to his retirement, as Tris Speaker is fifth on the all-time list with 3,514 hits.
Aug 8 - 11:59 PM

Derek Jeter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

The solo shot came off of Junichi Tazawa in the eighth inning. Given Jeter's lack of power, it's quite possible this will be El Capitan's last home run against the Red Sox. He's victory lapping to a slash line of .276/.330/.333, but it's nice to see the occasional flash of his old, dynamic abilities.
Aug 1 - 11:33 PM

Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 on Monday to pass Carl Yastrzemski for seventh place all-time on the hits list.

Jeter finished tonight's game with 3,420 hits, officially leaving him 10 shy of Honus Wagner in sixth place at 3,430 (Baseball-reference has Wagner at 3,420, which is probably more accurate, but MLB uses Elias for its stats). Jeter also walked and stole a base tonight, making this one of his best games of the season (especially since he was facing Yu Darvish). It's his fifth three-hit game of the year.
Jul 28 - 11:23 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with two runs scored Friday against the Reds.

Jeter singled to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning before Jacoby Ellsbury put the Yankees ahead with a two-run home run. The Captain hasn't had the smoothest ride in his swan song, but he has four multi-hit games in his last six. He's batting .275/.326/.325 over 84 games.
Jul 18 - 9:59 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-2 at the plate and scored a run Tuesday in his final All-Star Game.

Jeter doubled to right field to kick off the bottom of the first inning before scoring on a Mike Trout triple. He then had a bloop single to right field in the third inning before eventually being removed on defense in the fourth to a standing ovation. Jeter also nearly made a terrific play on defense to start off the game, making a diving stop on an Andrew McCutchen grounder before 'Cutch narrowly beat the throw at first. He could have easily been named MVP in a symbolic gesture, but it was probably even more symbolic to see Mike Trout win the award as a sort of passing of the torch to the new generation of players.
Jul 15 - 11:44 PM

Derek Jeter will lead off for the American League in Tuesday night's 2014 MLB All-Star Game.

It's a nice honor for the veteran shortstop in his farewell season, and it should be a spectacular moment when he steps to the plate on Tuesday night at Target Field. The full American League lineup: SS Derek Jeter, LF Mike Trout, 2B Robinson Cano, 1B Miguel Cabrera, RF Jose Bautista, DH Nelson Cruz, CF Adam Jones, 3B Josh Donaldson, C Salvador Perez. Felix Hernandez is the AL's starting pitcher.
Jul 14 - 1:12 PM

Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

Jeter singled in three of his four at-bats, contributing a sacrifice fly in the second and an RBI single in the fourth inning. It was his first three-hit game in nearly a month, bringing his season line up to .273/.323/.328.
Jul 6 - 6:35 PM

Derek Jeter is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

It's just a routine day off. Brendan Ryan is at shortstop Friday in Jeter's place.
