Brendan Ryan, who will provide insurance for shortstop Derek Jeter, has a deal with the Yankees, sources say. Ryan hit .197 for the Mariners and Yankees last year but won a place with the Yankees for his exceptional defense. The Yankees are still pursuing free-agent shrtstop Stephen Drew as they have questions on both sides of the infield. Jeter signed a one-year, $12 million deal for 2014. Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported the sides were close.
