Derek Jeter: part owner of a company that sells high-tech men’s underwear that refrigerates your genitals

Derek Jeter’s business interests aren’t limited to children’s books. He’s also into underwear referred to as “Tempur-Pedic banana hammocks.” From Page Six, of course:

Move over, Victoria, Derek Jeter has an even bigger “secret.”

The Yankee slugger’s retirement plan includes becoming an underwear mogul, Page Six has learned.

The slugger is a secret owner of Frigo RevolutionWear — a customized men’s underwear brand that sells skivvies more colloquially known as “Tempur-Pedic banana hammocks.” The high-tech undies sell for $100 a pair and include a “soft lock adjustment system” plus a “patented pouch” dubbed the “Frigo Zone.” (We’ll leave the zone’s location to your imagination.)

The guy who runs the company has said that the product “separates your genitals from the rest of your body . . . It lifts a little bit so [guys] feel the comfort.”

$100 for that? Hasn’t anyone ever heard of Gold Bond?

And while I know it’s a cliche to note this every single time this kind of thing comes up, I really do wonder how this would be received if A-Rod was an investor.

Indians sign Melky Cabrera to a minor league deal

The Indians have signed free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera to a minor league deal. The pact is pending a physical.

Cabrera, 33, went unsigned this past offseason after putting up a season of .285/.324/.423 with 17 homers and 85 RBI with the White Sox and the Royals.

Cabrera will report to Columbus once he passes his physical and, according to Paul Hoynes, there are no guarantees being made to him that he’ll get playing time. That said, the Indians aren’t getting much outfield production from anyone besides Michael Brantley, and Cabrera’s status as a switch hitter would give Terry Francona some flexibility, so it would not be shocking to see him on the big club after some reps in the minors.
