Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Returns to Bronx
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu and the Yankees agreed to a six-year, $90 million deal Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

LeMahieu has reached an entirely new level in his two years with the Yankees, hitting .336/.386/.536 overall, a significant step up from the .299/.352/.408 line he produced in seven years for the Rockies while calling Coors Field home. The deal will pay the veteran for his age-32 through age-37 seasons, so some age-related regression is to be expected, but $15 million per year is quite a cheap price to pay for the MVP candidate he's been so far during his time in the Bronx. He should look like a steal for at least the early part of the contract.

DJ LeMahieu: Declining qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu will decline the Yankees' one-year, $18.9 million qualifying offer for 2021 prior to Wednesday's deadline, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

The 32-year-old has been one of the best hitters in baseball for New York over the past two seasons with a .922 OPS, so it's not much of a surprise he'll be testing the open market in search of a longer-term deal. LeMahieu signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Yankees in January 2019, and he should be able to exceed those figures this time around in free agency.

DJ LeMahieu: Yanks extend qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu was extended the $18.9 million qualifying offer by the Yankees on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

LeMahieu has been one of the best hitters in the league in his two seasons with the Yankees, posting a .336/.386/.536 slash line with 36 homers, 43 doubles, 150 runs and 129 RBI in 195 games. New York is likely still attempting to retain him on a longer-term deal, but with the qualifying offer extended, it will receive a draft pick as compensation should he continue his career elsewhere.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Raps two hits, claims batting title
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 2-for-3 in Sunday's loss to Miami and finished the campaign with an MLB-best .364 batting average.

LeMahieu's finish atop the leaderboard makes him the first player in modern major-league history to win a batting crown in both leagues. After a superb first campaign with the Yankees in 2019, the veteran's performance this season was even better as he posted a career-best 1.011 OPS; meanwhile, his 10 homers and career-high .226 ISO dispel the notion that last season's power breakthrough was a fluke. LeMahieu enters the postseason swinging a hot stick -- he batted an even .400 with four homers and 13 RBI over his final 13 games.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 4-for-5 with two doubles, one run and three RBI during Saturday's 11-4 win over the Marlins.

The 32-year-old was hitless during Friday's series opener but more than made up for it Saturday by delivering his fourth four-hit game of the season. LeMahieu is slashing .359/.415/.589 with 10 homers, 10 doubles, 41 runs, and 27 RBI and enters Sunday's season finale poised to win the AL batting title.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Slugs 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 1-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Blue Jays.

He continues to wear out Toronto pitching, and LeMahieu finished the three-game series against the Jays having gone 8-for-13 with three doubles, four homers, eight runs and nine RBI while extending his hitting streak to 10 games. On the year, the veteran infielder is slashing .373/.426/.641 with 10 homers and 23 RBI.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Another big performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a walk, a double, three RBI and three runs scored Wednesday against Toronto.

LeMahieu torched the Blue Jays again, this time taking Tanner Roark deep in the first and fourth innings. He now has nine homers on the season, three of which have come in the first two games of the Yankees' series against Toronto. The performance also extended LeMahieu's hitting streak to nine games, during which he's put together three multi-hit efforts. Overall, he has a strong .373/.421/.627 line with 35 runs scored and 22 RBI in 164 plate appearances.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Huge night in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 4-for-6 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and five RBI in Tuesday's 20-6 rout of the Blue Jays.

His eighth-inning solo shot came off shortstop Santiago Espinal, who got pressed into duty on the mound to save the Toronto bullpen, but it still counts all the same for LeMahieu. The 32-year-old extended his hitting streak to eight games with the performance, during which he's slashing .364/.447/.758 with three homers, seven RBI and 11 runs.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Smacks sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during a 6-0 win over the Orioles in the first game of Friday's doubleheader.

He stayed hot in the nightcap, going 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and two runs scored. LeMahieu is slashing a dazzling .359/.410/.550 through 35 games with six homers, two steals, 14 RBI and 27 runs from the top of the Yankees' batting order.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Stays hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and a stolen base Wednesday, as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 7-2.

Lemahieu has now hit safely in 27 of 33 games this season. He launched an opposite-field bomb in the third inning, marking his third home run of the month. The 32-year-old has raked to the tune of a .355/.404/.524 slash line and should only further benefit from the eventual return of Aaron Judge (calf) and Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring).

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.

LeMahieu didn't start in Friday's nightcap, and he'll remain on the bench Saturday. Tyler Wade will start at second base with Thairo Estrada starting at third.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Not in Game 2 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu isn't in the lineup for the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

LeMahieu will get a game off after going 2-for-5 with one run in the first game of the twin bill. Thairo Estrada will start at second base.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Goes yard twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rays.

He gave the Yankees an early 2-0 lead by taking Trevor Richards deep in the first and third innings. LeMahieu has hit safely in five straight games since coming off the injured list, boosting his slash line on the year to a stunning .402/.444/.587 with four homers, 10 RBI and 19 runs through 24 games. If he avoids another IL stint in September and can stay hot, he could take a run at baseball's first .400 campaign since Ted Williams in 1941 -- although the achievement would obviously come with a giant asterisk given the nature of the 2020 season.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Returning to starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu (thumb) will be activated off the injured list and bat leadoff Saturday against the Mets, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

LeMahieu has been sidelined for the last two weeks with a sprained left thumb but will officially make his return to the lineup Saturday. There was already speculation that he could return at some point this weekend, and it holds true as the Yankees will get one of their best all-around hitters back. The team is currently riding a seven-game losing streak and needs players like LeMahieu to step up and provide some sort of spark to get back to its winning ways.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu (thumb) could return as early as Sunday against the Mets, according to general manager Brian Cashman, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The previous report was that LeMahieu could return this weekend, but it sounds like Sunday will be the earliest he can return. He has missed almost two weeks with a sprained thumb.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Could return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that LeMahieu (thumb) could return over the weekend, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

LeMahieu is expected to face live pitching sometime this weekend, but he could return if that goes well. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since Aug. 16 with a sprained left thumb but has made significant progress recently.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Live pitching on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu (thumb) is progressing well and and should face live pitching at some point this weekend, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

Manager Aaron Boone said the team is "really encouraged" by LeMahieu's progress facing high-velocity pitching from a pitching machine. If facing live pitching goes well, he could be activated early next week.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu (thumb) has resumed baseball activity and is showing significant improvement, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

LeMahieu was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 16 and given an initial return timeline of two to three weeks. It sounds as though the veteran could be back at the early end of that timeframe given his rapid improvement. Thairo Estrada is likely to receive the majority of starts at second base in LeMahieu's stead.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu (thumb) played catch Friday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

LeMahieu has been out for nearly a week of what's expected to be a two-week or three-week absence with a sprained left thumb. The Yankees have since also lost Gleyber Torres (hamstring/quadriceps), leaving Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada as their primary options in the middle infield.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Out two or three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeMahieu is expected to miss two or three weeks with his sprained left thumb, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

LeMahieu dealt with a similar injury back in 2018 and wound up being out for a similar time frame. The given timetable should see him back in action sometime right around the start of September. Tyler Wade will be the second baseman in his absence Monday against Boston.
