Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees are going to offer Derek Jeter a $45 million, three-year deal.
Yesterday Wallace Matthews suggested that the Yankees were offering Jeter more than $20 million a year and that Jeter was cool to the idea. This clearly undercuts that notion, which seemed rather nutty anyway. The $45 million is what a lot of people — including Joel Sherman — have suggested was likely. That amount also seems relatively reasonable, at least in this weird world in which Jeter is almost inevitably to be paid more than his actual on-the-field contributions are likely to warrant between now and the end of 2013.
