Fresh Report Spells Disappointment For Fans Eager For More Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez Run Ins Despite New Fox Deal
While the entire baseball world was expecting Derek Jeter to take up any managerial role after his Marlins job, the former shortstop shocked baseball fans all over the world by joining Fox Sports as an MLB analyst for the 2023 season.
Jeter won’t be an everyday analyst
Fans were very excited that Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez would appear together on Fox Sports regularly. But the latest updates on Jeter’s role have shut down all of that excitement. The Yankees’ legendary shortstop will only make select appearances for Fox Sports this year.
Jeter’s select appearances
According to the New York Post, “Jeter is only going to work the studio for the London MLB games, the All-Star Game and then in October.” This means that Jeter and A-Rod will not be making any regular season appearances together. Frank Thomas will probably be appearing during the regular season to fill that role.
Jeter’s first time as an analyst
Derek Jeter will be an MLB analyst for the first time this season. His last role in baseball was that of CEO for the Miami Marlins. Many fans are excited to see him in a new avatar as he begins his broadcasting journey.
