Is it just me, or is there something wrong with our captain? He looks bad at the plate. He's unable to get around on an inside pitch, he is weakly grounding out to second base on his bread and butter inside out swing to right instead of banging line drives, and he seems to be lacking energy.
From PeteAbe -
Derek Jeter's single in the 12th inning gave him four hits in his last 37 at-bats. He has not looked good at the plate since being hit on the left hand by a pitch from Baltimore's Daniel Cabrera on May 20. "That has nothing to do with it," Jeter said. "I just haven't been hitting. That happens from time to time." The skid dropped Jeter's batting average from .312 to .272.
It would not surprise me at all if he is battling through a bad left shoulder.
