News: Jeter (hamstring) is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox,'s Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Jeter may or may not have suffered a minor hamstring injury Saturday, but he will still be in the lineup for the final game of his career Sunday.

News: Jeter left Saturday's game for a pinch hitter and walked out of the clubhouse without a noticeable limp after a possible hamstring injury. New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi sent Francisco Cervelli to the plate in the top of the fifth inning of a 10-4 loss in Boston. "He didn't say he was injured, but we'll see," Girardi said. Impact: Jeter was 1 for 2, with a strikeout in the first and an infield single in the third inning. He chose to take part in this Beantown beatdown rather than end his career on the high note of beating the AL East champion Orioles in the Bronx with a game-winning single Thursday.(STATS, 3:11pm)

Impact: Jeter's final game at Yankee Stadium couldn't have been scripted any better, as he went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI, including the game-winner off the Orioles' Evan Meek.

Brendan Ryan will man short in Jeter's absence.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Jeter provided lots of drama during the final home at-bat of his career, singling off of Evan Meek to score pinch-runner Antoan Richardson from second base. He also had an RBI double in the first inning. The veteran shortstop has been hitting well this week, so he might be worth a shot over the weekend at Fenway Park if you're looking to pick up a hitter. Jeter indicated, however, that he will not be playing shortstop over the weekend, so he'll have to get his reps as the DH.(RotoWire, )

Impact: With Jeter's career nearing an end, and him heating up again following a long slump, he could play every day the rest of the way.

News: Jeter homered deep into the left-field seats against R.A. Dickey in the sixth inning, earning a standing ovation from his adoring fans and helping the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Thursday night. Impact: Jeter, New York's 40-year-old captain, ended a 158 at-bat homerless streak with the drive, just the fourth home run of his 20th and final major league season.
