It'll be interesting to see how the Yankees envision LeMahieu fitting in - and does his addition mean they're out of the Machado sweepstakes?
The Dodgers remain without clear options to start catcher and second base for the 2019 season, so president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and his staff still have some work to do.
Outside of his rookie season, where he played sparingly for the Chicago Cubs, LeMahieu's competed for the last seven years for the Rockies at second base.
LeMahieu has also started 41 games in his career at third base and one game at first base. He has two All-Star selections, three Gold Gloves awards and the 2016 National League batting title.
And LeMahieu is no slouch with the bat, either. His career high home-run total is 15, but is known to be a slap-hitter to the opposite side of the field which could be extremely beneficial for the Yankees moving forward. He has posted a line of.312/.372/.443 over the last three years. Where LeMaheiu fits into the mix once Didi comes back is a question for later on in the season but for now, he makes an already great Yankees team even better.
Their infield also includes rising stars Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar at second and third bases, respectively.
There's going to be a lot of shuffling around in the infield but offensively LeMaheiu should fit in nicely at the bottom of the Yankees lineup. It's worth seeing if Andujar can learn the hot corner and if Torres can play a better shortstop if Tulowitzki can't stay upright, a decent possibility. On top of having depth even the Red October couldn't handle, DJ LeMahieu's deal should be easy to move in a potential trade. 2019 is shaping up to be a fun-looking season!
