New York Yankees News Roundup: Jeter, Ticket Prices and the Minors

Derek Jeter is nearing a return to "baseball activities." The first day he's eligible to come off the DL is June 29th. Did you know that getting DL'ed so close to a milestone like 3000 hits is very rare indeed in the history of baseball?

  • Guess which interleague series has generated the highest increase in ticket prices... If you said Milwaukee at Tampa Bay, you would be wrong -

  • There's a lot happening around the farm system nowadays. Both the GCL and NY-Penn League seasons kicked off. 2010 first-rounder Cito Culver finally got his first hit after starting the season 0-11, and Dante Bichette, Jr. made his pro debut at thirdbase (0-3, BB). Gary Sanchez was named the Sally League Player of the Week (six games, .500/.522/.818) and Trenton's beat writer interviewed Kevin Whelan. On the injury front, Jorge Vazquez was 7-day DL'ed and Austin Romine, who hasn't played since June 2nd, will return in 5-7 days.
  • After another offensive outburst (14 runs against San Diego), the Red Sox offense is shaping up like an all-time contender.
  • A good bio on Jose Bautista. FYI, he declined a $5K offer from the Yankees back in his teenage days.
