Derek Jeter said he is "feeling great" and has no concerns about his health or his left ankle heading into the season. But he declined to talk about his retirement, repeating several times that he'll do so on Wednesday.
Jeter played in just 17 games last season, but prior to that he had played in 150-plus games in eight of the nine previous seasons. Drafting him as your starting shortstop in fantasy may be risky, but if his ADP does not catch too much helium from those who may have some nostalgic connections to one of the all-time Yankee greats, as he approaches his farewell season, drafting him to fill your middle infield position could help balance the health risk associated with a player who will turn 40-years old in June and his coming off a season where he endured multiple injuries.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
