He’s only batting .233 so far this season. As compared to other starters Brett Gardner who is batting .150. Or Mark Tiexeira who’s at .225. Of course there’s Nick Swisher at .211, Jose Posada at .189 and Curtis Granderson at .194.
Yet the Yankees are sitting on top of the A.L. East.
It’s early, but they’ve been doing it with just A-Rod and Robbie Cano. I don’t think it’s just Jeter who is slumping or even if you can call it a slump.
