Let’s take some time to take a breath, calm down and see what Derek Jeter has done, just not with the New York Yankees.
It was announced yesterday that the Miami Marlins will now be in the hands of the reliable shortstop.

Now that Jeter is a co-owner of a franchise of his own, what will his first move be? CBS sports has an idea.

While we can fawn over the success of the past, we can also look at the excitement that is to come in the future. That excitement comes in the form of No. 4 prospect in the system, Estevan Florial.
The Yankees may not be hitting bombs but Florial sure is. Now we can see why they didn’t want to include him in any trade packages.

This bomb to right field marked his first home run with the Single-A Tampa Yankees, with hopefully many more to come.
And now to the injury portion of the Buzz. It was announced yesterday by the PR department that the Yankees would be placing southpaw CC Sabathia on the 10-day DL and moving a few others to accommodate.

That’s what happens in baseball…no matter who gets sent down, there’s always a chance they’ll be right back up in the majors.
