The New York Yankees have signed free agent second baseman DJ LeMahieu to a two-year contract, according to YES Network’s Jack Curry. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting the deal is worth $24 million.
Curry also is reporting that LeMahieu will be a utility player for the team. He will play first base, second base, and third base for the team.
Despite being a rotational player, where manager Aaron Boone can use him in multiple positions, it’s an odd fit. The Yankees already have several players, who they can already use in those positions, as well.
The team has Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar, and newly signed Troy Tulowitzki, who can also play those spots on the field. Also, when Didi Gregorius returns from his elbow injury, he’ll be entered into that mix, as well.
With this signing, the Yankees are likely out of the mix to sign free agent Manny Machado. Now, it is believed that Machado will decide between the Chicago White Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies.
