Yankees, 2B D.J. LeMahieu reportedly agree to two-year deal

With LeMahieu and Troy Tulowitzki now in the fold, Manny Machado looks to be less of a fit in the Bronx than ever, although the addition of those two players certainly doesn't preclude a signing. The deal is expected to be "in the $24 million range", per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

This move nearly guarantees that the Yankees are out of the race for Manny Machado.

LeMahieu, 29, is perennially among the game's premier defensive second baseman and has consistently hit for average, though his overall production has wavered somewhat on a year-over-year basis. This will help the Yankees' lineup as it will provide balance. 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+). DJ LeMahieu is also a great fielder.

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

LeMahieu, 30, has spent eight years in the majors, the last seven with the Colorado Rockies, where he was a two-time All-Star and National League batting champion in 2016.

LeMahieu's multi-positional abilities will allow him to play second base, with Gleyber Torres at shortstop, in the event that the oft-injured Tulowitzki can not take the field.

Additionally, he can play third-base and fill in for Andujar if they choose to DH him and utilize his bat over his glove. The righty could also slide over to third base late in games, serving as a defensive replacement for the defensively challenged youngster, Miguel Andujar.

We are left to wonder, does this move make the New York Yankees the best team in baseball?
