Yankee’s shortstop Derek Jeter will return to play for the New York Yankees for his 20th consecutive season after having sat out much of the 2013 season. Jeter played a measly 17 games before succumbing to an ankle break in the 2012 playoffs. Jeter, who turns 40 in June, will be amongst the oldest players in the league. The 13-time MLB all-star said he is not worried about being as productive as always this season.
“My job is to be ready to play,” Jeter said. “I remember when I was 35, everyone said that was it. He can’t play anymore. End of my career. So, it’s really nothing different. Eventually, somebody is going to be right, you know what I mean? You’re going to run out of numbers.”
