Jeter to be shut down

Derek Jeter will not play in the final two games of the season due to a sore hand.

Jeter finishes his season with an even .300 batting average. Compared to his last few years, his numbers were down in every major offensive category. He didn't score 100 runs for the first time since 2003 when he only played in 119 games (though that its a product of the rest of the lineup's inconsistency).

His season seemed to take a turn for the worse after getting hit by the Orioles Daniel Cabrera in May. Though Jeter won't admit to it, it certainly had a negative effect on his performance.
