      Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Emerging from season-long slump

      DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia for his fourth multi-hit game over his past five contests.One of the most surprising early season developments for the New York Yankees has been LeMahieu's struggles at the plate. Through his first 56 contests, he was batting a meager .253 after posting a career-best and AL-leading .364 average in 2020. The veteran has begun to turn things around of late, however, raising his average eight points since June 8 and collecting exactly two hits in four of his five games during that span. LeMahieu's decline this season has some substance behind it -- his 16.7 percent strikeout rate is on pace for his worst mark since 2015, and his .082 ISO pales in comparison to the .226 mark he posted last season -- but there is still plenty of time for him to turn things around. Fantasy managers who used substantial draft capital to add LeMahieu to their 2021 squad may be best served to hope his recent offensive surge builds rather than to cast him off after his slow start.

      Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Endures rough game Sunday

      DJ LeMahieu went 0-for-5 with a walk and two strikeouts Sunday in the New York Yankees' 6-5 loss to the Red Sox in 10 innings.LeMahieu suffered through one of his worst games of the season, both at the plate and in the field. Though he wasn't officially charged with an error on the night, LeMahieu was unable to flag down a catchable shallow pop fly off the bat of Christian Arroyo in the eighth inning, which fell in for a base hit. Arroyo then came around to score the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly. LeMahieu had a chance to make amends with two outs in the bottom of the 10th, but he grounded out to second base to end the game. After the hitless outing, LeMahieu is now holding down a .656 OPS for the season, his worst showing in the category since 2014. He's also failed to record an extra-base hit since May 18, a stretch of 62 at-bats.
