Brendan Ryan has deal with Yankees, will provide Jeter insurance

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.
