|Assets:||Was ridiculously consistent with the bat. A phenomenal clutch player, he was smooth at short and efficient on the base-paths. His instincts were also first-rate. Had tremendous gap-to-gap power. Always led by example.|
|Flaws:||Always had limited range in the field, which placed extra burden on groundball pitchers. Also made a few too many errors. Generally, he was overrated defensively. Was also a bit of a slow starter early on.|

ImpactAfter going nearly a month in between multi-hit games, Jeter recorded his second straight game with two hits. He nearly hit his second home run in as many days but instead flew out to the warning track. Jeter may be inspired by his final homestand because he was in a major slump prior to Thursday.

ImpactJeter hit a single. Even though we all love Derek Jeter (the New York Daily News tells us so every day), it is nice to see him go out this year while he is still somewhat on top of his game. He is a shell of himself, but he is hitting .260, which is the fourth highest in the Yankee lineup, with 19 extra-base hits and 40 RBI. The Captain's "Goodbye Tour" is going out on a mediocre note. He's batting .261 with three homers, 39 RBI and 41 runs scored.

ImpactJeter's sixth-inning blast off of Mark Buehrle was the Yankees' first run of the game, the first step in their eventual erasure of a six-run deficit.

NewsDerek Jeter finished 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored to push the Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.
ImpactThis was Jeter's last trip to Seattle -- where his career began in May 1995 -- and he made it count. He went 7-for-12 with two walks and four runs scored during the three-game series. On Wednesday, he had two steals, the first time he'd swiped multiple bases in a contest since Sept. 25, 2009 versus the Red Sox. That game left him with 351 steals, allowing Jeter to join Craig Biggio and Rickey Henderson as the only players with at least 3,000 hits, 250 homers and 350 steals, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Of course, he'd been one of the worst everyday players in baseball prior to this series. Even after it, Jeter is slashing a modest .271/.331/.320 with just one homer and 14 RBI over 225 at-bats.

ImpactYet somehow, even with the Yankees scoring seven times, Jeter went without a run scored or an RBI. He has just eight runs scored and seven RBI for the year, even though he's played in 30 games as a No. 2 hitter in a pretty good lineup. That's going to have to improve, but even so, he just doesn't offer much in fantasy leagues.

ImpactPerhaps Jeter needed warm California air to wake him up after an extended layoff. The veteran entered this series batting .240 with zero power and in an 0-14 streak, and then he went 5-for-10 with a walk, double and his first homer of the year as the Bombers took two of three. It was good to see, but his fantasy prognosis doesn't change much. He's simply no longer an asset. Jeter is slashing .262/.336/.327 over 27 games.

ImpactJeter had gone 0-for-6 four times, most recently on May 11, 2011. The seventh at-bat was particularly disappointing for him tonight; after the Rays intentionally walked Jacoby Ellsbury to load the bases in the 13th tonight, Jeter hit a grounder right back to Heath Bell to end the inning.

ImpactJeter has already been in Tampa for a couple weeks, hitting in the batting cage and fielding grounders. "You can tell he's determined to go out there and do well," Phelps said. "If you had to place a bet on it, you know he's going to go out there and have a good year. I'm really looking forward to seeing him play again. He's having a lot of fun right now." You certainly wouldn't expect Phelps to say anything bad about his teammate, but it's an encouraging first-hand account.

ImpactJeter could have opted for free agency if he did not accept a $9.5 million club option, but the Yankees bumped his salary up to $12 million just to make sure he'd stick around. In reality, he wasn't going to go anywhere, regardless. The shortstop was limited to just 17 games this season, as his recovering from ankle surgery went slowly and he then had multiple setbacks.
