NEW YORK — Derek Jeter held a microphone and spoke without notes to the crowd that filled sold-out Yankee Stadium. His No. 2, the last of the single digit pinstripes, had been retired and a plaque in his honor dedicated that will be placed in Monument Park alongside tributes to Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra and the rest of the team’s greats.

“I say this very humbly,” he told the fans, “there isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever.”

Three years removed from a big league career that spanned 1995-2014, Jeter personally picked Mother’s Day for his tribute. His grandmother, parents, sister, nephew and pregnant wife joined him for the ceremony, and he laughed when he saw the plaque, which reads:

“Derek Sanderson Jeter / ‘The Captain’ / “Mr. November'” and goes on to call him “The cornerstone of five world championshp teams” and “a leader on the field and in the clubhouse, setting an example for his teammates with his uncompromising desire for team success.”

Now 42, Jeter captained the Yankees during his final 12 seasons, capping a career that included five World Series titles and a New York-record 3,465 hits. He is the 22nd player to have his number retired by New York, by far the most among major league teams.

n The Yankees put closer Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list because of rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder.

Chapman gave up a two-out RBI single by Houston’s Josh Reddick in the ninth inning Friday night, shook his pitching arm and was checked by head athletic trainer Steve Donohue on the mound moments later after throwing his 22nd pitch. The left-hander initially remained in the game, then was removed after allowing a single to Jose Altuve.

“He said he was fine. Nothing. No pain,” manager Joe Girardi said after the game.

It was Chapman’s first outing since blowing a three-run lead in the ninth inning last Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

The four-time All-Star’s average fastball velocity has dropped from a major league-high 100.9 mph last year to 98.2 mph this year, according to MLB’s Statcast.

Former big league umpire Steve Palermo, whose accomplished career ended when he was shot trying to break up a robbery in 1991, died Sunday. He was 67.

Major League Baseball announced Sunday that Palermo had died, without providing details. Palermo, who lived in the Kansas City area, had been in poor health.

Palermo broke into the majors late in the 1976 season and joined the American League staff the next year. He worked the 1983 World Series, several playoff series and the All-Star Game.

DIAMONDBACKS: Arizona placed catcher Chris Iannetta on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Iannetta was hit in the face by a Johnny Barbato pitch in the seventh inning of Friday night’s game against Pittsburgh.
