Derek Jeter (quad) said that he'll be in the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Jeter will miss a third straight contest this afternoon with a sore quad, but he'll be ready for the nightcap. Dean Anna is getting another start at shortstop in the afternoon game.
Apr 16 - 10:57 AM

Derek Jeter (quad) is not in the lineup in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Jeter probably wasn't going to play in both games, so it makes sense to rest him in the afternoon tilt. It will be the third straight contest he's missed with a sore quad, but he should be back in there this evening. Dean Anna is getting another start at shortstop.
Apr 16 - 10:10 AM

Derek Jeter is out of the Yankees lineup for a second consecutive game on Sunday due to a sore quad.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that it's been bothering Jeter since Friday and that he wanted to give him an extra day to rest with Monday's off day looming. No tests are scheduled, and at the moment it sounds as though he'll return to the lineup on Tuesday.
Apr 13 - 5:19 PM

Derek Jeter is out of the Yankees starting lineup for the second consecutive day on Sunday.

No word yet on the reason for the absence, but the Yankees should have an update on his status shortly. Dean Anna will once again draw the start at shortstop.
Apr 13 - 4:28 PM

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

It's a routine day of rest for the Captain with a day game after a night game. Dean Anna will draw the start in his place and hit ninth for the Yankees.
Apr 12 - 10:29 AM

Derek Jeter went 1-for-3 with a run scored in the Yankees' season-opening loss Tuesday.

Jeter singled and came around to score in the team's two-run eighth inning. The Captain is hoping for a better year in his farewell tour after injuries limited him to just 17 games last season.
Apr 1 - 10:11 PM

Derek Jeter is batting second in Tuesday's season opener against the Astros.

Jeter was limited to just 17 games last season due to a long list of injuries, but the 40-year-old is hoping for better luck on the health front in his 20th and final season in the majors. The full New York lineup: Jacoby Ellsbury CF, Jeter SS, Carlos Beltran RF, Brian McCann C, Mark Teixeira 1B, Alfonso Soriano DH, Brett Gardner LF, Brian Roberts 2B, Kelly Johnson 3B.
Apr 1 - 3:25 PM

Derek Jeter said that he's fine after fouling a pair of balls off his foot during Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

Jeter iced his foot after the game, but doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward. He shouldn't have a problem taking his place at shortstop in the Yankees Opening Day lineup.
Mar 21 - 10:10 PM

Derek Jeter went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts as the Yankees were no-hit by the Marlins in Grapefruit League action on Saturday.

Not quite the offensive effort the Yankees were hoping for as they celebrated Mariano Rivera's career in Panama. Jeter is now hitting .148 (4-for-27) on the spring season.
Mar 16 - 12:10 AM

Derek Jeter is 4-for-24 this spring after going 0-for-4 against the Orioles on Thursday.

Jeter had back-to-back two-hit games on March 6-7. Since then, he's 0-for-10 in three games. It's not something the Yankees will worry about as long as Jeter continues to look like he's moving well.
Mar 13 - 5:40 PM

Derek Jeter picked up his first two hits of the spring Thursday versus the Phillies.

Jeter grounded out in his first at-bat to fall to 0-for-10 for the spring, but he picked up a groundball single and then a gap double in his next two plate appearances today. He ran well on both hits, too.
Mar 6 - 5:51 PM

Derek Jeter went 0-for-3 and committed an error Monday in his third appearance of the spring.

Jeter grounded into his second double play and is 0-for-7 so far this spring. The error came on a pretty tough hop, so that wasn't a big deal. He still seems to be moving pretty well at shortstop and on his groundouts, so the Yankees won't be concerned about the slow start.
Mar 3 - 3:48 PM

Derek Jeter went 0-for-2 and played five innings of shortstop in his spring debut Thursday.

Jeter ran well on both of his grounders, the first of which was turned into a double play. He got a standing ovation as he came out for his first at-bat, but the crowd was surprisingly thin at Legends Field for the beginning of the farewell tour.
Feb 27 - 4:20 PM

Derek Jeter (ankle) is likely to make his spring training debut on Thursday when the Yankees take on the Pirates.

Yankees skipper Joe Girardi indicated that the team would like to see Jeter run the bases at least once more before he begins game action. Coming off a disappointing and injury-plagued season, the future Hall-of-Famer actually appears to be severely undervalued in early fantasy drafts.
