News: Jeter is out of the Yankees' lineup Saturday in Tampa Bay, Kevin Davidoff of the New York Post reports. Impact: Jeter is sitting down for the first time since missing four games due to a tight quad, but with hits in each of the last three, he extended his hitting streak to nine contests. He'll yield shortstop to Dean Anna, who will bat ninth in the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Jeter (quadriceps) is in the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Impact: Quad tightness has kept Jeter out since last Friday, but he'll return to his usual spots -- shortstop and the two-hole in the batting order -- to face left-hander Travis Wood in Game 2. Jeter has never faced Wood, but has hit .338/.408/.502 against southpaws in his career.(RotoWire, )

News: Though he will not play in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader, it looks like Jeter will be back in action for the nightcap against the Cubs, Jack Curry of YES Network reports. Impact: It appears manager Joe Girardi simply wanted to play matchups, as Jeter will sit with right-hander Jason Hammel on the mound for Game 1, but draw back in for Game 2 with lefty Travis Wood starting for the Cubs. There's been no word as of yet whether he'll start at shortstop or serve as the team's DH for the second game.(RotoWire, )

News: Jeter (quadriceps) remains out of the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Cubs, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Tuesday's rainout apparently didn't provide enough extra time for Jeter to shake off the injury, as he'll miss his fourth straight game with the ailment. He's been productive when he's played so far this season with 10 hits and four walks in 41 plate appearances, but health concerns may dog the 39-year-old for the rest of his final season in pinstripes.(RotoWire, )

News: Jeter is out of the New York Yankees' lineup for the second consecutive day after feeling tightness in his right quadriceps. Impact: Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Jeter's quad got a little tight Friday night, but the 39-year-old shortstop finished the game. He received a scheduled day off Saturday and the original plan was to play him Sunday night against Boston. Girardi, however, says he changed his mind Saturday and decided to rest Jeter again to give the captain three days off in a row.(STATS, 6:22pm)

News: Jeter is out of Sunday's lineup with a tight quadriceps, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Manager Joe Girardi was questioned about his decision to sit Jeter on Saturday, but he didn't cite an injury as the reason. The veteran shortstop is day-to-day, and following Monday's off day, could be back in the lineup as early as Tuesday when the Cubs come to town.(RotoWire, )

News: Jeter is not in the Yankees' lineup again on Sunday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports. Impact: Jeter didn't start Saturday either with Dean Anna in his place. There is nothing to suggest that the veteran shortstop is injured, so the fact that he's out of the lineup on back-to-back days is kind of puzzling.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Jeter isn't in the Yankees' starting lineup Saturday against the Red Sox, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. Impact: With a day game following a night game, this is just a routine day off for Jeter, as the Yankees try to keep the 39-year-old shortstop healthy for the season. Dean Anna will get the start at short in Jeter's absence.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Jeter had two hits in Thursday's 4-1 win over the BoSox. Impact: It marked the last time the retiring Jeter will face the Sox in a season series opener.(STATS, 4:21pm)
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Jeter will lead off for the Yankees versus Jon Lester and the Red Sox on Friday, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. Impact: With the Yanks facing a left-hander, Brett Gardner is on the bench and Jacoby Ellsbury will bat second. Jeter has been hitting the ball with more authority lately and has a .389 OBP, so manager Joe Girardi is playing the percentages.(RotoWire, )

News: Jeter has taken over sole possession of eighth place on baseball's career hits list with a single in the fourth inning against the Blue Jays. The veteran shortstop grounded a one-out hit into right field Sunday, chasing Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison. Impact: It was the 3,320th hit of Jeter's career, moving him past Hall of Famer Paul Molitor. Next on the list is Carl Yastrzemski, with 3,419. One inning earlier, Jeter tied Molitor with a leadoff single, a line drive to right. Jeter sat out Friday's series opener then went 0 for 2 with two walks Saturday. His previous hit was an RBI single in the fifth inning of Thursday's win at Houston. Jeter entered play Sunday batting .182 with no homers and one RBI in what he has said will be his final season.(STATS, 2:18pm)

News: Jeter went 1 for 3 in his fantasy opener Tuesday. Impact: Jeter does not represent a quality fantasy option at this point.(STATS, 3:57pm)
