Derek Jeter

 

Will Derek Jeter be able to stay on the field and put up the kind of numbers baseball fans have grown accustomed to the future Hall of Famer putting up?

After suffering fracturing his left ankle in the first game of the 2012 American League Championship series against the Detroit Tigers, Jeter never fully recovered last year, spending three stints on the disabled list.

In only 17 games and 63 at-bats in 2013, Jeter hit only a .190, with one home run, and seven RBI's.

Sure, Jeter will turn 40 in June, so age may be a factor, but keep in mind that he produced a terrific season just a year prior, hitting a .316, with 15 homers and 58 RBI's in 2012, at age 38.

Bryan Hoch, of MLB.com, discusses the expectations for Jeter, a 13-time MLB All-Star, in 2014.
