All indications point toward 39-year-old Derek Jeter being the New York Yankees’ starting shortstop in 2014, but the Bronx Bombers secured an important insurance policy on Monday by inking Brendan Ryan to a two-year deal, according to the team’s Twitter account.

The Yankees acquired Ryan, 31, from the Seattle Mariners in September for a player to be named later, and he played quite well down the stretch.

He is capable of playing shortstop, second base and third base, and he is best known for his wizardry with the glove.

Although Ryan isn’t going to lead the Yankees back to glory on his own, he is the type of player that every good team has.
