Slump continues for Jeter

Derek Jeter is 1 for 21 over the last seven games, dropping his batting average from .314 to .282. He hit several balls hard on Monday but didn’t get anything to show for it.

Given the slump and how he’s been throwing the ball from shortstop the last few days, you have to wonder if he’s injured. His quad seems to have healed up. Maybe he has a shoulder issue or something. Something to keep an eye on.

Meanwhile, the Yankees will get lefty tonight in Brian Burres. That will be 17 lefty starters in a span of 29 games.
