Jeter to return to Yankees

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.”
