Last week the Yankees designated Eduardo Nunez for assignment and now they’ve traded the utility infielder to the Twins in exchange for Single-A pitching prospect Miguel Sulbaran.

Did Derek Jeter just … forget to hustle?
Apr 7, 2014, 11:33 AM EST
No, really. Jeter actually said something thought-provoking in an interview. This is not a drill.

And talks about what has happened in his life over the past 17+ years.

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is already a Hall of Famer, but he still has some business with the record books to take care of before his time is up.

Red Sox, Yankees, and Dodgers dominate the best-selling jerseys list.

Like Chipper Jones and Mariano Rivera before him, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is going to receive gifts at every road park he visits during his farewell season. First up is Houston.

Eduardo Nunez, who not so long ago was viewed by many people as the Yankees’ heir apparent to Derek Jeter, has been designated for assignment.

Derek Jeter‘s farewell tour has already begun. Before an ultimately-rained-out game Saturday afternoon at Steinbrenner Field, the veteran shortstop was given a key to the city of Tampa … Apparently that’s the kind of love and access you get as Planet Earth’s 11th Greatest Leader. Follow @drewsilv

This headline from Jon Heyman’s story at CBS Sports.com gets at what annoys people about Derek Jeter coverage: The story itself is fine. Scouts question whether Jeter is going to be able to get it done this year. Totally legit. I just didn’t see anyone talking about “The Great” Derek Jeter or the “miracles” he…

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,…

Brendan Ryan was slated to be the Yankees’ utility infielder and Derek Jeter insurance, but instead he’s likely to begin the season on the disabled list with a back injury. Ryan hasn’t played in a game since March 4 and tweaked his back warming up yesterday, canceling plans to rejoin the Yankees’ lineup. Ryan and…

It may be spring training, but no-hitters are always fun. Marlins pitchers Brad Hand, Steve Cishek, A.J. Ramos, and Arquimedes Camineros combined for nine innings of no-hit baseball against the Yankees. The game was played at Rod Carew Stadium in Panama as part of the “Legend Series”. Brad Hand started the game and went five…

David Ortiz told MLB Network Radio that he’s going to miss Derek Jeter when he’s gone: “If there’s one guy that the baseball game is gonna miss once he’s retired, it’s Derek . . . He is one of the baseball players that I can tell you that pretty much his whole career has done everything perfectly…

The Yankees’ first series this year is in Houston, and it’ll be the Yankees’ only trip to Houston, so it’ll be the first stop on the Derek Jeter farewell tour. And an old friend of Jeter’s will be playing a big part in the festivities: The first stop on the Derek Jeter Long Goodbye Tour…

TAMPA — The original plan was to go sit in the crowd and drink beer at the Astros-Tigers game, but when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka was making his spring training debut in Tampa today, plans changed. I got in the car at 6:30 this morning and headed to Steinbrenner Field early to take…

After coming out to a standing ovation, Derek Jeter went 0-for-2 Thursday in the first appearance of his farewell season. Jeter, who announced his retirement earlier this month, played his scheduled five innings at shortstop before leaving the game against the Pirates. He grounded into a double play his first time up against sinkerballer Charlie…

If that headline sounds familiar it’s because I used one remarkably like it two weeks ago. Then, as now, I do so in response to a Bob Klapisch column. Then, as now, Kalpisch is using his column in a desperate effort to make Derek Jeter into some kind of anti-PEDs hero. Two weeks ago he…

Let the record show that I gave fair warning: I thought Buster Olney might adjust his lists from Monday’s ESPN Insider column after being presented with the glaring omissions. Alas, I was ignored. The bulk of Olney’s column today was designed to point out how totally not overrated Derek Jeter is. He dives into the…

Alfonso Soriano, who is still playing under that massive contract the Cubs gave him, says this year could be it: Alfonso Soriano could join Derek Jeter in retirement following the end of the upcoming baseball season. “It depends on how I feel,’’ Soriano said when asked by The Post if he wants to continue playing.…

Derek Jeter met the press today. As he said in his Facebook post last week, 2014 will be his last season. But this wasn’t a ceremony or a retirement press conference as such. The team and Jeter referred to it as Jeter’s “media availability” which he does every spring, and Jeter did everything he could to…

SOCHI, Russia — Well, the overwhelming thing that is the Winter Olympics has completely thrown me off my 100 greatest baseball players ever schedule. So it goes. We’ll pick up where we left off after I return and recover and get back on U.S. time. I predict this will be sometime in July. In the…
