Line of the Day: May 8th, 2011

SS Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees was 4-for-6 with two home runs in a 12-5 rout of the Texas Rangers. Jeter's two home runs were the first of the season and he also stole his first base. Add in three RBI and two runs scored and Jeter is finally showing signs of life at the top of the Yankees order.

Line: 6 AB, 2 R, 4 H, 3 RBI; 2 HR, SB

My fantasy perspective: Jeter has been taking his hits off the field from the media, fans and fantasy baseball pundits this season and could be finally showing signs of life. He's in the midst of a six-game hitting-streak in which he's now gone 11-for-28 (.393 BA) and raised his average up to .276 for the season. Only five of his hits have gone for extra bases (three doubles and two home runs) but three have come in his last two games. I'm not anointing him an MVP or even an All-Star but it sure would be nice to get top-10 shortstop production out of the aging Yankee legend.
