Brian Cashman says there no reason to think Derek Jeter won't return to the lineup as planned Wednesday.
While Jeter has been hampered by quad issue, the injury isn't all that serious. A couple of days off may throw a monkey wrench into MLB's Farewell Tour plans, but it's, pretty much, business as usual for the Yankees. No sense in rushing him back. Better to lose a couple of games than a couple of months. He'll be fine for Wednesday's double-header with the Cubs, though he may only play in one of the games. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Ravens announce extension for cornerback Jimmy Smith.
The deal is said to give him an average of just under $10 million per year. Smith was heading into the final year of his rookie contract – a reported $6.9 million option that the team picked up before last season. Considering his level of play and contributions on defense, it would have been quite the bargain but probably would have left a bad taste in the cornerback's mouth. He should be all smiles though heading into camp now with a new deal. Analysis: Howard Bender
Mirza Teletovic is listed as probable for Wednesday.
Teletovic was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolus, meaning he had blood clots in his lungs. He hasn't played since January 22nd, but he looks like he will be on the court for Wednesday's game. It would be surprising to see him play a full workload of minutes seeing as its been three months since he's last played. Regardless, his return would be a nice emotional boost to his team.
