Derek Jeter, Yankees Agree to One-Year, $12 Million Contract


Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $12 million, one-year contract.

The deal Friday replaces a $9.5 million player option for the 39-year-old shortstop. Jeter was limited to 17 games this year after breaking his ankle in the 2012 AL Championship Series opener against Detroit.

Jeter hit .190 (12-for-63) with one homer and seven RBIs this year, playing 13 games at shortstop and four at designated hitter. The Yankees captain was on the disabled list four times.
