LeMahieu has tested positive for coronavirus, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.
LeMahieu is reportedly asymptomatic, but it remains unclear when he'll be able to join his teammates. With Opening Day less than three weeks away, he won't have much time to get in game shape even if he's back with the team soon, which could open up a temporary role for Tyler Wade or Thairo Estrada at second base.
LeMahieu is participating in baseball drills and working out at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.
While some Yankees players and coaches have elected to go home in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, LeMahieu suggested that he will remain in Florida for some time in order to take advantage of the pleasant weather and major-league workout facilities. There is a psychological benefit to remaining around the complex as well. "Personally, it keeps me sane. At least work out and do some baseball stuff," LeMahieu stated.
LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in a victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.
LeMahieu launched a long ball to right field in the second inning to stake the Yankees to a 6-0 lead. The 31-year-old has gone deep twice in his last three games to extend his career-high total to 26 on the season. He needs one more RBI to hit triple digits for the first time in his career and has already crossed the plate 108 times this season to establish another career high. With a .329/.377/.523 slash line, he has been one of the most impressive hitters in the majors in 2019.
LeMahieu is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
This looks like a routine breather for a day game after a night game, with the Yankees gearing up for what they hope will be a deep postseason run. Brett Gardner will lead off against right-hander T.J. Zeuch as Gio Urshela mans third base. LeMahieu, once thought to be a Coors Field product, is batting .292 in September and has not hit below .280 in any month this season.
LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Thursday's victory over the Angels.
LeMahieu kicked off the scoring for the Yankees with a three-run shot to right field in the second inning. The blast was his 25th of the season -- 10 more than the career high he set last year while playing half his games in the high altitude of Colorado. LeMahieu has exceeded all expectations in his first year as a Yankee, complementing the power numbers with a .329/.377/.518 slash line, 97 RBI and 106 runs scored.
LeMahieu isn't starting Tuesday's game against Detroit, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

LeMahieu is not in the lineup Wednesday against Texas.
LeMahieu sits after starting 18 games in a row. He hit a strong .295/.329/.513 over that stretch, though that's actually a step down from his impressive .331/.378/.531 season slash line. Tyler Wade starts at the hot corner.
LeMahieu went 1-for-5 with a walkoff solo home run in Saturday's win over the A's.
He was 0-fer during the first nine innings, but LeMahieu came up clutch in extras with a homer off Lou Trivino, LeMahieu's 24th home run this season. The 31-year-old has shifted over to third base, covering for Gio Urshela (groin) with Luke Voit back at first.
LeMahieu will take over at third base for most games during Gio Urshela's (groin) absence, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo! Sports reports.
LeMahieu has played the majority of his games at second base this season but has also spent significant time at both first and third. He shifted over to the hot corner upon Urshela's exit from Wednesday's game, started at third Friday and is in the lineup at the same position Saturday. The move is likely to be short-lived with Urshela expecting a minimum stay on the injured list.
LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run, another RBI and two runs scored overall in a 7-3 victory against the Mariners on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old has lost his lead in the AL batting title race, but he's hardly slumping with a .335 average. LeMahieu has posted four straight multi-hit games, and he already has set career highs in home runs and RBI while retaining a chance of establishing a new high-water mark in runs scored as well. LeMahieu has 23 home runs, 89 RBI, 93 runs and four steals in 499 at-bats this season.
LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's win over Seattle.

He also ranks second in baseball with a .333 batting average while swatting 22 homers and driving in 87 runs in his initial campaign with the Yankees.
LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.
LeMahieu drove a curveball over the center field wall leading off the game, his first home run in 62 career at-bats against Clayton Kershaw. He also singled and scored in the eighth inning, raising his season average to .331. After seven years in the rarefied air of Colorado, the 31-year-old is enjoying perhaps his finest campaign in his first season with the Yankees, having already set career highs in homers (22) and RBI (87).
LeMahieu went 2-for-5 Sunday with a home run and three RBI in an 8-4 loss against the Indians.
The 31-year-old just continues to rake, as he posted three multi-hit games against the Indians during the weekend series. He has also homered in each of his last two games. LeMahieu is favored to win another batting title, with his .339 clip, and he has a career-high 21 homers. He also possesses 86 RBI, 87 runs and four steals in 460 at-bats this season.
LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a 6-5 victory over the Indians on Saturday.
LeMahieu tied the score with an RBI single in the third inning and then hit his 20th homer to right field off Zach Plesac in the fifth to put the Yankees in front 5-4. The 31-year-old not only leads the league in batting average, but he's actually been better in August, hitting .375 with five homers. For the season, he's slashing .338/.386/.538 with 83 RBI in 455 at-bats.
LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
LeMahieu will just be getting some maintenance after starting in nine of the Yankees' last 10 games following his return from a minor groin strain. Thairo Estrada, who was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre earlier in the day, will fill LeMahieu's spot in the infield. Estrada will start at second base and bat ninth in the series finale.
LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk during an 8-3 victory against the Orioles on Tuesday.
It wasn't a great night for the average, but LeMahieu added to his career-high mark in homers with a long ball to lead off the bottom of the first. LeMahieu should blow away his high-water marks in the home run and RBI categories and has a chance to set a new career high in runs as well. He also has firm control of the AL batting title race. LeMahieu is batting .337 with 19 home runs, 81 RBI, 84 runs and four steals in 442 at-bats this season.
LeMahieu is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
He is hitting .327/.380/.561 with six home runs in 25 games since the All-Star break. The Yankees' remarkable infield depth, even when they are not at full strength, will result in LeMahieu getting a day off here and there. Breyvic Valera will start at second base while Gleyber Torres starts at designated hitter.
LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI while scoring twice in Thursday's win over Toronto.
LeMahieu led off the game with a double and came around to score on Gio Urshela's home run, then singled and scored on another long ball by Urshela in the third. He later plated a pair of runs with a single in the sixth inning. The multi-hit effort was his fourth in a torrid August in which LeMahieu has batted .406 (13-for-32) with three homers and eight RBI over eight games.
LeMahieu went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks during a 9-4 victory against the Orioles on Tuesday.
This is already his third multi-hit game of August, and LeMahieu has three homers in the first six days of the month as well. His .336 average pops off the page, but LeMahieu is an MVP candidate because he also has a career-best 18 homers and 76 RBI from the leadoff spot. He also owns a .534 slugging percentage and 78 runs in 414 at-bats this season.
LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
LeMahieu is presumably just receiving some maintenance after he recently overcame a minor groin strain, which kept him out of the lineup for four games. He started the subsequent three contests -- including both ends of Saturday's doubleheader -- going 6-for-14 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs. Gleyber Torres will fill in for LeMahieu as the Yankees' leadoff man in the series finale.
