HOT: Derek Jeter – Jeter went 0-for-3 last night to snap a nine game hitting streak, but he still got on base twice last night and I wanted to give him props for the streak. He started off red hot before a rough May. Now he’s hitting .311/.354/.356/.710 over his last 10 games. Not a lot of power, but solid performance from a shortstop.
COLD: Raul Ibanez – Ibanez was brought in to do one thing, DH against righties, but he’s been forced to do much more – play left field on a regular bases and even hit against lefties occasionally. Unfortunately after a solid start, he is hitting a bit of a rough patch lately. In his last 14 games Ibanez has hit a lowly .143/.217/.238/.455. Looking back since March 26, Ibanez is just 8-for-48 against righties, a .167/.226/.271/.497 line.
