This isn’t Prime Jeter, but he still had a very solid year and no one really knows the emotional toll this might have on the Yankees.
I personally would throw Alex Rodriguez at shortstop, but it doesn’t appears the Yankees will go that route, but I do believe they need his bat back in the lineup now.
Joe Girardi said he would not play A-Rod at short. "It's been too long."
