Derek Jeter - DH?

Jon Heyman reported that Hal Steinbrenner and Derek Jeter have discussed his future at shortstop, and the Yankees owner told DJ that the team is looking for a starter at the position. Jeter said he understands the situation, as his injury-riddled season leaves a lot of questions about his ability to play the position regularly.

It's been reported that the team is close to signing Brendan Ryan, however I highly doubt they plan to have Ryan at SS regularly. They've also been connected to Jhonny Peralta and Stephen Drew, leaving Jeter to spend most of his time at DH.

This could also mean that Alfonso Soriano would play most of the time in the outfield, so the Yankees would be looking to bring in only one of Carlos Beltran or Shin-Soo Choo.
