Derek Jeter

  1. Alfonso Soriano as a Granderson replacement seems far-fetched

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Curtis Granderson

    The silver lining about a 10-week injury to Curtis Granderson: Opening Day is still more than a month away. Losing Granderson’s power is far from an ideal way for the Yankees to start the spring, but it’s hardly a season-wrecker either. And while there might be some concern over whether Granderson will regain his power…

  2. Derek Jeter does on-field running for first time since ankle surgery

    Feb 23, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Derek Jeter continues to make encouraging progress from left ankle surgery. According to the Associated Press, Jeter did on-field running and agility drills with teammates this morning for the first time since he broke his ankle during the ALCS last October. Jeter didn’t travel with the Yankees for their exhibition opener today and isn’t expected…

  3. Mike Schmidt: “Michael Young could retire tomorrow, and he would be a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame”

    Feb 22, 2013, 8:32 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies infielder Michael Young stretches during a workout at the team's MLB spring training in Clearwater

    Mike Schmidt is the best third baseman to ever play the game of baseball. That does not make him qualified, however, to judge talent, it seems: “Michael Young could retire tomorrow, and he would be a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame. He’s probably two Michael Young years away from being a first-ballot Hall…

  4. Derek Jeter fully expects to be ready on Opening Day

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter took questions from media members during a press conference Sunday morning in spring camp and expressed once again that he fully intends to be in the starting lineup on Opening Day — April 1 against the Red Sox. “I broke my ankle in October; it’s been quite some time,” Jeter said…

  5. Ryan Howard’s ability to hit lefties is not a matter of opinion

    Feb 15, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    Ryan Howard, Ryan Hanigan, Bruce Dreckman

    I was just reading this profile on Ryan Howard over at It’s your standard spring optimism piece. Howard feels way better now than last year and is ready to return to form. Nothing all that notable in the story. But midway down the story, a poll appears: Internet polls are all pretty meaningless, especially…

  6. Yankees future Hall of Famers continue to be compared to dogs

    Mariano Rivera Getty

    The other day Yankees president Randy Levine compared his show dog to Derek Jeter. Today Bob Klapisch compares Mariano Rivera to a greyhound: There he was, long and lean as a greyhound, delivering one easy toss after another, straight out of a da Vinci ink drawing. There’s perfect and then there’s Mariano Rivera releasing a…

  7. Chemistry Watch: The Giants and Marlins claim to have it

    Feb 12, 2013, 9:40 AM EDT

    Periodic Table

    Ah, team chemistry. The ultimate example of post hoc ergo propter hoc in baseball. We always credit winning teams with having it after the fact and, in most cases, attribute the actual winning to the chemistry. And if you try to fight against that you get a million people saying, in effect, “scoreboard!” With that…

  8. Derek Jeter appears to be back at 100%

    New York Yankees' Jeter reaches for a ground ball at the team's spring training complex in Tampa

    Jon Morosi tweets: Derek Jeter just took about 80 ground balls at shortstop. Slight side-to-side movements, no throws to first base during the drill. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) February 11, 2013   Yup, “slight side-to-side” movements is the Derek Jeter to which we have all become accustomed these past few years.  If he had more…

  9. “He’s like Derek Jeter. Very calm”

    Randy Levine

    That’s Yankees President Randy Levine. Talking about one of his show dogs: Meet sweet Mitch, a 5-year-old yellow Labrador retriever. He’s a rookie at America’s top dog show, yet he comes with a pinstripe pedigree — his co-owner is New York Yankees President Randy Levine. “He’s like Derek Jeter. Very calm,” Levine said. So on…

    New York Yankees v Oakland Athletics

    Scott Cacciola writes a fantastic and somewhat disturbing article in the New York Times about the people who camp out for Derek Jeter‘s autograph at the Yankees training facility down in Tampa. Cacciola outlines the whole, elaborate setup outside the facility. About the Yankees employee who shouts at the autograph seekers regarding the exact way…

  11. The Yankees will be saved by Derek Jeter: “the transcendent one”

    Feb 4, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    If you thought we were past the Golden Age of Derek Jeter Deification, well, you just haven’t read Bob Raissman’s latest column in the Daily News. He has a suggestion as to how the Yankees can get past the latest A-Rod PED scandal: The captain’s presence and persona are uplifting. They can cleanse any muck surrounding…

  12. Jeter fields grounders, takes BP

    Derek Jeter Reuters

    Derek Jeter returned to baseball activities and things went well: The 38-year-old New York Yankees captain fielder 55 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt at shortstop Monday at the team’s minor league complex. He also hit in a batting cage. “Everything went well,” Jeter says. He expects to be ready for…

  13. Cashman: there’s a chance A-Rod misses the whole year

    Brian Cashman was on WFAN today and, when asked about Alex Rodriguez‘s prognosis, acknowledged there is a chance he could miss the whole season: “Yeah,” Cashman replied when asked if there was a chance that A-Rod could miss the entire season. “I think because (of) the serious nature of the surgery and the condition that he’s trying…

  14. Derek Jeter is concerned about climate change

    Jan 23, 2013, 4:42 PM EDT

    derek jeter getty

    Derek Jeter rarely if ever wades into controversy. It’s almost always baseball with him, and if he ever comments on anything non-baseball related he tends to keep it light. Really, I can’t think of a single instance where he ever touched on a contentious issue. So it’s rather surprising to hear him talk to Joe…

  15. Derek Jeter has begun workouts at the Yankees’ complex in Tampa

    Jan 12, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    derek jeter getty square

    The Yankees continue to express confidence that Derek Jeter will be ready for Opening Day following left ankle surgery. While he hasn’t been cleared for baseball activities yet, his rehab appears to be going as planned. According to Bryan Hoch of, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed today that Jeter is out of a…

  16. Great Moments in withholding a Hall of Fame vote

    Jan 8, 2013, 9:26 AM EDT

    Craig Biggio

    It seems like Craig Biggio is going to be the first 3,000 hit guy to not make the Hall of Fame on his first try (non-Palmeiro division) in living memory. Seems silly, especially considering how good he was defensively and how he was no mere singles hitter. But that’s not as silly as the reasons…

  17. Derek Jeter says “no question” he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup

    Dec 3, 2012, 4:27 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Alex Rodriguez may end up missing the entire first half following hip surgery, but Derek Jeter thinks he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup despite breaking his ankle in the ALCS. Just two weeks ago Yankees manager Joe Girardi called Jeter’s status for Opening Day “a little bit of a question mark” but today during…

  18. Reports of Derek Jeter’s fatness were greatly exaggerated

    Dec 3, 2012, 10:18 AM EDT


    On Friday Derek Jeter appeared to not be in The Best Shape of His Life. Yesterday he hung out with Harold Reynolds, and he looks much skinnier. He’s clearly the beneficiary of the most intense two-day workout ever devised. Or, possibly, that was a bad picture of the guy last week. For now I’m going…

  19. Derek Jeter is not in The Best Shape of His Life

    Nov 30, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    Mr. Creosote

    God love the New York Post. They got a paparazzi photo of Derek Jeter not looking his best yesterday, and ran it with the headline “Derek Jeter packing on the pounds during recovery.” It ain’t exactly newsworthy, but it’s fun and I’m pretty OK with fun being the threshold for most things sports-related, especially on November 30. But…

  21. Blue Jays hire Chad Mottola as hitting coach, announce DeMarlo Hale as bench coach

    As expected the Blue Jays have officially announced that DeMarlo Hale has left his position as Orioles third base coach to become their new bench coach and Toronto also named Chad Mottola hitting coach. Mottola was the fifth overall pick in the 1992 draft–one spot ahead of some guy named Derek Jeter–but played just 59…

  22. Yankees interested in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger

    Jeff Keppinger AP

    According to Ken Rosenthal of, the Yankees have renewed their “longstanding interest” in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger. The Yankees have Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix on their roster, but they are currently seeking a veteran infielder who can play third base and fill in at shortstop with Derek Jeter coming off ankle surgery.…

  23. Joe Girardi says Derek Jeter’s status for Opening Day “is a little bit of a question”

    Nov 16, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter screams as he injures himself fielding a ball hit by  Detroit Tigers' Peralta during the 12th inning of Game 1 of their MLB ALCS playoff baseball series in New York

    Joe Girardi cast some doubt on Derek Jeter‘s ability to return from a broken ankle by Opening Day, saying yesterday that “there’s a little bit of a question” about whether he’ll be recovered in time to be in the Yankees’ lineup. Jeter broke his left ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS and underwent surgery…

  25. The Yankees expect Mariano Rivera to take a pay cut

    Nov 7, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees are expected to ask Mariano Rivera to take a “significant paycut” as part of a new contract. He made $15 million in 2012. Heyman thinks the Yankees could ask him to take $10 million in 2013, possibly with incentives.  Which doesn’t seem unreasonable given his age and the fact…
