Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter homered as the Yankees edged the Blue Jays 3-2 Thursday night.
Insight: With just seven games remaining at home, the fans may have seen Jeter's final home run trot. It was his fourth homer of the season and 260th of his Hall of Fame career.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is not in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: Jeter is hitless over the last six games (22 at-bats). The Captain's "Goodbye Tour" is going out on a mediocre note. Fantasy owners should simply remember the future Hall of Fame member is a career .300 hitter over 20 seasons and smile for what he's done for you in the past ... and leave him on your bench.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter went 1-for-3 in his farewell day at Yankee Stadium on Sunday against the Royals.
Insight: Jeter hit a single. Even though we all love Derek Jeter (the New York Daily News tells us so every day), it is nice to see him go out this year while he is still somewhat on top of his game. He is a shell of himself, but he is hitting .260, which is the fourth highest in the Yankee lineup, with 19 extra-base hits and 40 RBI. The Captain's "Goodbye Tour" is going out on a mediocre note. He's batting .261 with three homers, 39 RBI and 41 runs scored. Fantasy owners should simply remember the future Hall of Fame member is a career .310 hitter with an .818 OPS over 20 seasons and smile for what he's done for you in the past ... and leave him on your bench.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is a career .500 hitter (7-for-14) with a pair of home runs versus Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ.
Insight: Jeter's "Goodbye Tour" hasn't produced many results for fans and fantasy owners (.262, 3 HR, 36 RBI, 39 runs scored), but he does have a favorable matchup Sunday.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.
Insight: Jeter could not take advantage of a friendly matchup against Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison. Jeter came into the matchup hitting .500 (7-for-14) against the 24-year-old. The Yankee captain is hitting .207 with four extra-base hits, including one home run, and a poor .622 OPS in 25 games this month. The debate of whether he should continue to bat second in the lineup will rage on at least another day.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is a career 7-for-14 against Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison.
Insight: The experts have debated whether manager Joe Giardi should lower Jeter in the batting order, but as of now he is still hitting second and will continue to get opportunities. Jeter is hitting .264 with 18 extra base hits, 36 RBI and a measly .627 OPS this season.
 
8/7/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is just 1-for-15 in his career versus Rick Porcello and is not in the starting lineup.
Insight: The consistent Jeter has batted exactly .272 in two of the four months this season and .275 and .289 in the others. He's not the fantasy value he once was as he finishes out his Hall of Fame career. Stephen Drew draws the shortstop assignment.

Insight: The consistent Jeter has batted exactly .272 in two of the four months this season and .275 and .289 in the others. He's not the fantasy value he once was as he finished out his Hall of Fame career. Avoid him Thursday in this unfavorable matchup.

Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has picked up six hits, including two homers, in 11 at-bats against Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ.
Insight: Jeter has batted exactly .272 in three of the four months this season and .275 in the other. He has just 13 extra-base hits in 367 at-bats. However, he could be a good and inexpensive option Sunday.
 
7/24/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: New York shortstop Derek Jeter is not in Thursday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Jeter hasn't done much this year (.270, 2 HR, 27 RBI in 89 games) but at least he's been able to stay healthy for his "goodbye tour." It's surprising he's getting Thursday's game off, however, as he's 3-for-5 with two homers versus Rangers starter Colby Lewis. Brendan Ryan will get the start.

Insight: Jeter was just 1-for-12 in the series just completed against Baltimore. He hasn't done much this year (.267, 1 HR, 16 RBI in 65 games) but at least he's been able to stay healthy for his "goodbye tour."

5/25/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had four hits and two RBI Sunday at Chicago.
Insight: Jeter has hit .319 over his last 18 games, but with just one home run, 10 RBI, 14 runs and one steal he isn't a good fantasy option.

Cold5/4/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: New York shortstop Derek Jeter went 0-for-11 the last two games despite not striking out at all.
Insight: Jeter's strikeout rate is a career-high 18.7 percent, but that hasn't been a problem the last two games. He's hitting .240 with five runs, six RBI and zero steals this season, so he really isn't doing anything for fantasy owners.

Insight: He went 0-for-7 in last night's extra inning loss. Yangervis Solarte (.294, 1 HR, 13 RBI) will move over to shortstop with Kelly Johnson (.215, 3 HR, 8 RBI) getting the start at third base.
