Yanks re-sign Jeter
The Yankees made it pretty clear Friday that Derek Jeter, despite his limited action in 2013, will be the team’s shortstop in 2014 by re-signing him to a one-year contract extension worth $12 million.
The 39-year-old Jeter missed all but 17 games in a disappointing 2013 season, with four separate trips to the disabled list. He hit .190 with eight runs, one double, one home run and seven RBIs in those 17 games.
With Mariano Rivera retiring, Jeter will become the longest-tenured player in Yankees history when he plays his first game of 2014.
