Brendan Ryan to replace Derek Jeter at shortstop in 2015?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) When Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter announced last week he plans to retire after the season, it got Brendan Ryan thinking he could be the guy who replaces Jeter in 2015. Ryan signed a two-year deal with New York in November.

"It's something that in the back of my mind," he said, per The Star-Ledger. "Something that's going to keep you focused. I don't what you to think I'm taking at-bats off in July or whatever, but that's easy to point to. It's something I can draw from."

As for his focus in 2014, Ryan is looking to improve on his batting average, which has been below .200 the last two seasons. Ryan said hitting coach Kevin Long has worked with him to simplify his swing.

"My whole life I've kind of been in a crouch and I kind of stood up more over there," he said. "Maybe tried to drive the ball too much and got away from being that scrappy singles, doubles guy. And that's hitting for average and getting on base and taking a bag here and there. Those are things that helped get me to the big leagues and helped me with some success at the plate early. Things I need to get back to."
