The New York Yankees are close to re-signing SS Brendan Ryan, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Ryan would serve as insurance for SS Derek Jeter. The deal would be small and won't keep the team from signing another player that can play shortstop.

New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner is expressing concern that SS Derek Jeter will be able to play at his pre-injury level next season. "Given his age and given what his injury was, I think we all have concerns, yes," Steinbrenner said. "But we're also confident that if anyone can come back, he can. No one is tougher and no one is going to work harder to get back. So there are concerns. But we're also confident that he's going to come back and be the player he was two years ago."

The New York Yankees will place SS Derek Jeter (ankle) on the disabled list, which will effectively end his season.
Fantasy Tip: This isn't a surprise, especially after the Yanks traded for Brendan Ryan last night. Drop Jeter in all formats if you haven't done so already.

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan is expected to start at shortstop over SS Eduardo Nunez with SS Derek Jeter (ankle) sidelined. Ryan gives the team a much more steady glove at the position. The move could also suggest that the Yanks don't expect Jeter to return this season. "He's still in a holding pattern," manager Joe Girardi said about Jeter. "He's not going to be out on the field today. I don't know if that means he's available to me in an emergency, but he's not going to do anything today."
Fantasy Tip: Ryan has a very weak bat, so it isn't wise to rely on him, even in AL-only leagues, at the shortstop position.

New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) will not be shut down for the rest of the year, according to general manager Brian Cashman. "Right now it's just a day-to-day thing," Cashman said. "It was a little sore the other day, something he wasn't really speaking to, but you could see the way he was moving around, so we pulled the plug on it." The team is still awaiting the news on Jeter's CT scan.

New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) is out indefinitely after reinjuring his surgically repaired left ankle. "His ankle is a little sore, so we are probably going to give him a couple of days and make an evaluation," manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi isn't sure that Jeter will play again this year with only three weeks left in the season. SS Eduardo Nunez will play shortstop in Jeter's absence.
Fantasy Tip: Don't rely on Jeter for the rest of the season. Nunez is a nice commodity in deep mixed leagues for the remainder of the year if Jeter does not return.
