Derek Jeter, the shortstop and captain of the New York Yankees, collects his 3,000th hit on this date in 2011 when hits a 400-foot home run into the left-field bleachers at Yankee Stadium.

When people ask me about the Yankees’ most underrated batters, I usually come up with two names. No, it’s not Gleyber Torres, or Aaron Hicks, or Brett Gardner, much less established stars like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Not even Gary Sanchez, even though he might fit the bill.

Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier has “a little” plantar fascia, manager Aaron Boone told reporters in a conference call Wednesday evening.

Last season, Cole was the runner-up for AL Cy Young while going 20-5 with a 2.50 ERA and 326 strikeouts against 48 walks across 212.1 innings. After his Houston Astros fell short against the Washington Nationals in the World Series, he signed his nine-year pact with the Bronx Bombers in December. The Yankees are obviously expecting major things from their cannonball-splash signing, and if Tuesday’s outing was any indication, he could hit the ground sprinting when the regular season opens.

He’s been doing his cardio inside, but then wanting to get him outside in the light and moving around a little bit out there. So, you know, he was able to, you know, do a little more of that today, but he did that yesterday as well and responded well to it,” Boone said. So, you know, we’re continuing to move cautiously and slow with him, but, but at least encouraged with how he’s responding to what we’ve put in front of them so far.

As much as it’s really appreciated…you don’t really know how to act,’’ Girardi said Wednesday of being cheered while wearing an opposing uniform. But, “in a lot of ways, it’s really nice. Had there been a sellout crowd and a traditional pregame lineup exchange, Girardi could expect to hear a nice reaction for his tenure as Yankees manager, and his hero’s role as a player in the 1996 World Series clincher.

The Yankees put second baseman DJ LeMahieu and relief pitcher Luis Cessa each on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. In a related move, they invited righty Adonis Rosa to spring training.

Geography has never held more significance in a Major League Baseball season than this year. The Central Division in both leagues is the least geographically spread out.

If you have other associated symptoms like dizziness or difficulty with seeing things, blurry vision, things of that nature — you need to have those essential functions come back.
