Jeter, 39, is coming off a 2013 season where he batted just .190 (12-for-63) with one home run and seven RBI. The 13-time all-star made four separate trips to the disabled list, appearing in just 17 games due to multiple lower-body injuries. Prior to 2013, Jeter had made just five trips to the disabled list in 18 years.
The 39-year-old is the Yankees’ all-time leader in hits, games played, stolen bases, at-bats, singles, and hit by pitches. He also ranks second in doubles (Lou Gehrig-534), third in runs (Babe Ruth -1,959, Gehrig-1,888) and ninth in homers. No active player has appeared in more games for his current team than Derek Jeter, and he is 10th all-time in games played among Major Leaguers who have spent their entire careers with one team.
Additionally, Jeter is one of just two players in Major League history, along with Willie Mays, to record at least 3,000 hits, 250 home runs, 300 stolen bases and 1,200 RBI in their careers.
Jeter is the owner of a career .312 batting average and currently ranks ninth on Baseball’s all-time hits list.
