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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 4 - 12:28 PM

Derek Jeter finished 2-for-4 with a double, stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Jeter has strung together a modest seven-game hitting streak in which he's batting 10-for-28 (.357) with four runs scored, four RBI and two stolen bases. Left for dead after a slow start to the year, the veteran is now batting .276/.330/.334 in his farewell tour.
Jul 1 - 10:35 PM

Derek Jeter went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Jeter's sixth-inning blast off of Mark Buehrle was the Yankees' first run of the game, the first step in their eventual erasure of a six-run deficit. It was a rare display of power for the Hall of Fame shortstop. Jeter is now slashing .267/.322/.327 with two home runs and 17 RBI on the season.

Derek Jeter finished 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored to push the Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.

This was Jeter's last trip to Seattle -- where his career began in May 1995 -- and he made it count. He went 7-for-12 with two walks and four runs scored during the three-game series. On Wednesday, he had two steals, the first time he'd swiped multiple bases in a contest since Sept. 25, 2009 versus the Red Sox. That game left him with 351 steals, allowing Jeter to join Craig Biggio and Rickey Henderson as the only players with at least 3,000 hits, 250 homers and 350 steals, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Of course, he'd been one of the worst everyday players in baseball prior to this series. Even after it, Jeter is slashing a modest .271/.331/.320 with just one homer and 14 RBI over 225 at-bats.
Jun 13 - 1:16 AM

Derek Jeter went 4-for-5 with two RBI to help the Yankees beat the White Sox 7-1 on Sunday.

Jeter tripled to go with three singles, and he also scored a run in the game. The triple was his first of the season. Up to game speed after scuffling early on, Jeter has brought his line up to .275/.342/.329 for the season. It's good to see The Captain is still able to swing it despite this being his final hurrah.
May 25 - 7:09 PM

Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 with a walk Monday versus the Mets.

Yet somehow, even with the Yankees scoring seven times, Jeter went without a run scored or an RBI. He has just eight runs scored and seven RBI for the year, even though he's played in 30 games as a No. 2 hitter in a pretty good lineup. That's going to have to improve, but even so, he just doesn't offer much in fantasy leagues.
May 12 - 11:08 PM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-2 victory over the Angels.

Perhaps Jeter needed warm California air to wake him up after an extended layoff. The veteran entered this series batting .240 with zero power and in an 0-14 streak, and then he went 5-for-10 with a walk, double and his first homer of the year as the Bombers took two of three. It was good to see, but his fantasy prognosis doesn't change much. He's simply no longer an asset. Jeter is slashing .262/.336/.327 over 27 games.
May 8 - 1:21 AM

Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored Monday in a 4-1 loss to the Angels.

During a frustrating night in which Joe Girardi and Shawn Kelley were both ejected for jawing with home plate umpire Laz Diaz over balls and strikes, Jeter was just about the only Yankee who enjoyed himself. In so doing, the legendary shortstop yanked himself out of a 4-for-30 slump that featured no extra-base hits and only one walk. Jeter's farewell tour hasn't been pleasant thus far, and he's slashing .250/.318/.290.
May 6 - 1:24 AM

Derek Jeter is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.

It's no surprise that the veteran shortstop is sitting a day game after a night game, especially after taking an 0-for-7 in Friday's extra-inning loss. Yangervis Solarte will draw the start at shortstop in his place.
May 3 - 10:39 AM

Derek Jeter went 0-for-7 for the first time in his illustrious career in Friday's 14-inning loss to the Rays.

Jeter had gone 0-for-6 four times, most recently on May 11, 2011. The seventh at-bat was particularly disappointing for him tonight; after the Rays intentionally walked Jacoby Ellsbury to load the bases in the 13th tonight, Jeter hit a grounder right back to Heath Bell to end the inning.
