This may sound somewhat puzzling, given the fact that Derek Jeter missed two games, Francisco Cervelli is on his way to the disabled list again, Brian Roberts looks to be as injury-plagued as ever and there is no first baseman in the house to take Mark Teixeira’s place, but the Yankees emerged from their first Red Sox series in pretty good shape.

HOUSTON -- Known for being Mr. Cool under pressure, Derek Jeter was as nervous as a rookie on his final Opening Day. "To be honest with you, I was probably more nervous this year because I hadn’t played [a regular season game] in awhile,” said Jeter, who missed most of 2013 with a variety of injuries. Jeter said that he had anxiety in each and every one of his 16 Opening Days. “You have butterflies," Jeter said.

Derek Jeter was 0-for-3 in Sunday’s loss to Toronto, which sank his Grapefruit League batting average to .114. That is hardly reassuring for a 39-year-old player trying to come back from a season lost to various injuries, but Joe Girardi denied being concerned.
Brendan Ryan had an MRI Friday that revealed something pushing on the nerves in his back, and Derek Jeter's backup likely will start the season on the disabled list.
TAMPA, Fla. -- This winter, the Yankees took out a two-year, $5 million insurance policy on Derek Jeter's health. That policy was named Brendan Ryan. Now, with the team eight days from breaking camp, the Yankees need to find an insurance policy for the insurance policy. After undergoing "a couple of MRIs" on his back at a local hospital, a dejected Ryan acknowledged it was unlikely he would be ready to play anytime soon and would probably begin the season on the disabled list.
