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.

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.

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.

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: If the Yankees had picked up his option for next season he would have made $9.5 million. So Jeter, who played 17 games last season, is actually getting a raise? This could only happen in the Bronx.

Description: New York shortstop Derek Jeter will miss the remainder of the season with soreness in his surgically repaired left ankle.

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.
