Description: The 2014 season will be Derek Jeter's last. The Yankees shortstop announced on his Facebook page that he'll be retiring after the season.
Insight: With five championships and over 3,000 hits in his career, Jeter is going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer. After missing most of last year with a broken ankle, fantasy owners should be very cautious with Jeter heading into the 2014 season.

Description: The Yankees re-signed Derek Jeter to a one-year, $12 million contract on Friday.

Insight: Jeter fractured his ankle in the 2012 ALCS and missed most of the season after doctors discovered another fracture in April. The 39-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season. He hit .190 in 17 games and is still 684 hits away from 4,000.

Description: New York shortstop Derek Jeter is out indefinitely after tweaking his ankle Saturday and is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Baltimore.
Insight: The Yankees refuse to admit that Jeter is done for the year but with only three weeks left on the schedule, it's hard to imagine a scenario where he'd return. Expect Eduardo Nunez to fill in at shortstop while Jeter is sidelined.

Insight: Jeter also took ground balls at shortstop and did some light running on the field. He made it clear his timetable is entirely up to the Yankees. "It's a day-to-day thing," Jeter said. "They told me I'm taking BP, so I'm taking BP. Tomorrow, I don't know. I know I'm going to Tampa on Thursday. That's all I know." He said he doesn't know if he'll have to play rehab games before returning. "I always think I can just jump back in. I did last time," Jeter said. "If they want me to go play somewhere, I'll go play somewhere. It's entirely up to them. I'm not really in a power position to negotiate. That's all I can say."
