Jeter, Rivera become free agents
At 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning, Derek Jeter entered unchartered, and for him unwanted, territory.
The shortstop, along with Mariano Rivera and the rest of the Yankees' free agents, were free to begin negotiating with all teams just after midnight.
No talks between the agents for the two Yankees icons and the team were scheduled for the weekend, but working out those contracts are priorities. Those two deals, along with an all-out pursuit of Cliff Lee, will begin this week. The three players are central to the team's offseason plans, which are fairly straightforward — re-sign Jeter and Rivera and ink Lee to what likely would be a $100-million-plus contract.
