The active leader in career hits is back in action Monday night for the Yankees, as Derek Jeter has returned from the disabled list. The Yankees are in Cleveland to play the Indians and Jeter will be hitting leadoff.

Jeter Watch
Jeter enters the game with 2,994 career hits, good for 28th on the all-time list. When he does get to the famed 3,000-hit plateau, he'll tie Roberto Clemente for 27th. Of the 27 men with at least 3,000 career hits, the only ones not in the Hall of Fame are Pete Rose, Craig Biggio and Rafael Palmeiro. Biggio's going to get in when eligible, Rose is banned and Palmeiro likely won't get in due to testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Simply put, 3,000 hits is good for automatic election to the Hall, unless there are special circumstances.

We'll be updating this post after each Jeter plate appearance.

Plate appearance No. 1: Reached on an error by third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall.

Plate appearance No. 2: Flew out to center field.

Plate appearance No. 3: Grounded out to third base.

Plate appearance No. 4: Lined out softly to shortstop.
