Jeter retiring: A look back at what he's done against the Twins

The man called "Captain Clutch" and "Mr. November" will retire following the 2014 Major League Baseball season.

Derek Jeter, who is entering his 20th year with the New York Yankees, announced on his Facebook page that he plans on retiring at the end of the upcoming season.

"And the thing is, I could not be more sure. I know it in my heart," Jeter said. " The 2014 season will be my last playing professional baseball."

Injuries limited Jeter to just 17 games last season, so as long as he can stay on the field, he'll be on a goodbye tour all summer. The Twins are scheduled to play the Yankees in New York for three games in late May, and again at Target Field for a four-game series July 3-6.

Whether Jeter lights up the sky on the Fourth of July is unknown, but he's definitely had his share of fine moments against the Twins in his career.

In 125 career games against the Twins, Jeter has a .323 batting average with 13 home runs, 57 RBI, 32 doubles, 83 runs and a .388 on-base percentage. In 52 career games at the Metrodome he hit .301. He has an even .300 average in 10 career games at Target Field. That means Jeter has absolutely killed the Twins at Yankee Stadium.

Jeter has been a thorn in the Twins' postseason side. In the 2003 ALDS, he hit .429. The next year he helped the Yankees beat the Twins again in the ALDS, where he hit .316 with a home run and four RBI. He hit .400 with a homer and four RBI when the Yankees swept the Twins out of the 2009 ALDS, and he added four more hits to his playoff career when New York swept the Twins again in 2010.

The Yankees have won 12 of 14 postseason games against the Twins in Jeter's career, and he has posted a rather impressive .351 batting average.

Overall, he's been nothing short of a model of consistency throughout his career. Take a look at his year-by-year numbers against Twins, according to Baseball Reference.
