According to reports this morning out of New York City, the Yankees have signed LeMahieu to a two-year, $24 million deal.

Former Rockies All-Star DJ LeMahieu has reached a two-year deal with NY that will pay him $24 million, The Athletic and ESPN reported Friday. His contract is believed to be a two-year deal with a guarantee in the range of $24MM.

While the focus has been on the Bryce Haprer when it comes to the Phillies this weekend, it looks like they may be the favorite now to land Manny Machado.

While LeMahieu does not sport much power, he possesses good bat to ball skills. It's a crowded mix but a deep and highly talented one that should provide the Yankees plenty of insurance against injury while also allowing them to field a strong lineup even on days when their top bats are resting. The righty has always racked up lots of hits and sports a high career batting average.

LeMahieu is the second prominent addition to the Yankees' infield, on the heels of last week's signing of Troy Tulowitzki. The infielder has won three Gold Gloves over the past five seasons.

LeMahieu authored a.276/.321/.428 slash line with 15 home runs and 62 RBIs in 128 games for the Colorado Rockies in 2018. In my opinion, the 2019 New York Yankees are better without the expensive star.

He's only played 41 career games at third base, the position where Miguel Andujar resides and four games at first base. The 2019 Yankees will also be full of depth as they have valuable assets all around the diamond. We will have to wait and see, but the Bronx Bombers should be in the conversation.
