    Brian Roberts

    That’s what a scout tells Jon Heyman: According to one big-league scout in spring training, the Yankees have to have the least range on the infield of any major-league team. While he’s only in Florida, he seems pretty certain. “It’s got to be the worst in baseball,” the scout said. Derek Jeter‘s range hasn’t been great for years,…

    TAMPA — I’m at Steinbrenner Field for the Masahiro Tanaka debut today. As I was waiting for his arrival to the Yankees’ clubhouse this morning, another player of note walked in. No one walked over to his locker so I figured I would. Me: Derek, do you have a second? Jeter: Sure. Me: What’s it…
