MLB Free Agency Rumors: DJ LeMahieu Signs 2-Year Contract With Yankees

DJ LeMahieu, Yankees Agree On 2-Year Contract

Signing LeMahieu isn't going to thrill Yankees fans who have their heart set on Machado, but this is a really solid, sensible move by Cashman.

The Bombers on Friday reached an agreement on a two-year contract with free agent second baseman DJ LeMahieu, WFAN baseball insider Jon Heyman confirmed. The deal is expected to be between $22 million and $24 million, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

This move likely signals the end of the Yankees quest after star shortstop, Manny Machado.

LeMahieu isn't just a good defensive player, he's great with the glove. This past season, most of his pop returned, but his overall output checked in at.276/.321/.428 - rather pedestrian production when considering his hitter-friendly home setting (86 wRC+). Even though he's another right-handed bat in a lineup filled with them LeMaheiu's bat to ball skills should help the Yankees become a more balanced offense that doesn't always rely on hitting the ball over the fence.

Apple to launch three iPhones with new camera features this year
The price cuts likely came from distributors of Apple products, which Canalys estimates sells a quarter of all iPhones in China. This means the company's complete 2019 lineup would likely make use of the iPhone XR's Haptic Touch feature instead.

The Yankees plan to use LeMahieu, a three-time Gold Glover, in a versatile role around the infield.

After seven solid seasons with the Colorado Rockies, LeMaheiu will join the Bombers in NY as a solid rotational piece moving forward.

The 30-year-old joins his former teammate and double-play partner, Troy Tulowitzki, in the Bronx as the Yankees continue to stockpile infielders with Didi Gregorius recovering from elbow surgery. The breakout slugger has been heavily criticized for his defense at third base, even though his steady offense was one of the biggest bright spots of the 2018 season.
