Hamilton has hit primarily second, fourth or fifth in the Anaheim batting order but will get a big bump to seventh on Wednesday night. The $125 million man is sporting a rough .213/.269/.388 slash line this season.

It's another big step for the rehabbing shortstop, who is working out at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, Florida. Jeter has been hitting off a tee and doing light fielding drills for about a week and is currently on track to return to the Yankees' active roster shortly after the All-Star break.
