Yankees sign DJ LeMahieu to a two-year contract


The Yankees have reached an agreement with free agent infielder DJ LeMahieu, according to multiple reports. The reported contract is for two years and $24 million. LeMahieu, who won a batting title in 2016 and Gold Gloves in 2014, 2017 and 2018, has spent the majority of his career with the Colorado Rockies.

With the signing, the Yankees appear to be further out of the game for Manny Machado. The New York infield is now comprised of LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, Troy Tulowitzki, Miguel Andujar, Luke Voit, Greg Bird and Tyler Wade.

LeMahieu is expected to fill a defensive utility role for New York, seeing action at first, second, and third base. The 30-year-old reached a career high last year with 15 home runs.
