Derek Jeter hit his first home run of the season as he went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the 9-2 road win over the Angels on Wednesday.
Despite a rather disappointing start to the season, Jeter is now 5-for-11 over his last three games, with two extra-base hits (1 HR), one RBI and three runs scored. His best days are clearly behind him at this point in his career, but on the days in which he is in the Yankees lineup he is worth starting considering the power bats slotted behind him and his respectable .336 OBP which should lead to plenty of runs scored down the line.

Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
