Derek Jeter re-signed a one-year, $12 million deal with the New York Yankees on Friday, keeping The Captain in the bronx next season.

Could you even imagine Derek Jeter in any other uniform? explains why the new deal basically amounts to a raise, rather than an agreement to keep No. 2 in the Big Apple:

Jeter held a $9.5 million player option for 2014, the final installment of a deal he signed before the 2011 season that ended up paying him $51 million over three years. Instead, he and the club reached the new agreement.

After an emphatic Yankee-Stadium home run in his first at bat of the season, The Captain struggled in his attempt to return to the diamond after breaking his ankle in the 2013 postseason. Jeter, who will turn 40 next June, played in just 17 games and was shutdown with a couple weeks remaining in the season.
