  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Could be favorite to hit leadoff

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone indicated in an interview with Foul Territory on Friday that he'd like to see LeMahieu win the team's leadoff spot.

    The skipper isn't committing to any lineup spots yet, but he noted when discussing the leadoff spot that he was "excited" with how LeMahieu finished the season and is hoping the 35-year-old can "solve" the leadoff spot for the Yanks. Boone also mentioned Alex Verdugo and Gleyber Torres as potential leadoff candidates. The manager is tentatively planning to hit Juan Soto second and Aaron Judge third.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Slated to play third base

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that LeMahieu will be the club's starting third baseman in 2024, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    LeMahieu has bounced around all over the infield during his time with the Yankees, but it sounds like the club would like to have him focus mostly on third base next season. What that means for Oswald Peraza isn't clear, as the rest of the Yanks' infield spots already appear spoken for.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Heads to bench Friday

    LeMahieu is out of the lineup Friday against the Royals.

    Jake Bauers will start at first base and bat sixth as Estevan Florial jumps to the leadoff spot. LeMahieu went 0-for-4 in Thursday's series finale at Toronto and is slashing just .219/.315/.266 over his last 73 plate appearances dating back to Sept. 8.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Racks up three hits in nightcap

    LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and two RBI in the second game of a doubleheader against Boston on Thursday.

    LeMahieu sat out the early contest before slotting in at the top of New York's order for the nightcap. The veteran helped the Yankees earn a split of the doubleheader with a three-hit performance that included an RBI single in the second inning and run-scoring double in the eighth. LeMahieu's three hits were more than he had tallied over the previous week combined -- he had gone 2-for-19 over his last five games heading into Thursday.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Continues power surge

    LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Tigers in a 5-1 win Tuesday.

    LeMahieu led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot to give the Yankees an early lead. It was the continuation of a recent power surge that has seen the veteran infielder go deep seven times over his past 13 games. Prior to the hot streak, LeMahieu had gone 20 contests without a long ball and had hit just eight homers over the first 104 games of the campaign.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Opens September with long ball

    LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-2 victory against Houston.

    LeMahieu opened the new month in good form, swatting Justin Verlander's second pitch of the game over the right-field fence for a leadoff homer. The long ball continued LeMahieu's recent power surge -- he's gone deep six times over his past 10 contests after slugging just eight homers over his initial 104 games of the campaign. The veteran is now up to 14 home runs on the year, the most since he hit a career-high 26 long balls in his first season as a Yankee in 2019.

    LeMahieu belted a 411-foot solo shot in the second inning to give New York a 3-0 lead. It was the continuation of a surprising recent uptick in power by the veteran infielder, who has gone deep five times (all solo shots) over his past eight contests. Prior to the surge, LeMahieu had hit just eight homers over his initial 104 games this season.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Goes deep again in loss

    LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

    LeMahieu was on the latter end of back-to-back jacks for the Yankees against Zack Littell in the third inning. He's now reached safely 13 times in his last six games and has four home runs over that span after only homering twice throughout June and July. For the year, LeMahieu is slashing a mediocre .247/.326/.397 with 12 homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs and a 43:97 BB:K in 436 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Homers twice in Yankees' win

    LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs Friday in a 6-2 win over the Rays.

    The multi-homer effort was the seventh of LeMahieu's career but his first since May of 2021. He also added a single and a walk and scored an additional run. It's the third home run this week for LaMahieu, who has assumed leadoff duties for the Yankees of late.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Snaps homer drought in victory

    LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday in a 9-1 win over Washington.

    Aaron Judge smashed three homers in the game to lead New York's offense, but LeMahieu made a contribution as well with his seventh-inning solo shot. The long ball snapped a streak of 20 games without a homer for LeMahieu, and it was just his second home run over his past 46 contests. Power has never been the biggest part of the veteran's game, and it's clear that the 26 long balls he hit in 2019 in his first season as a Yankee were an aberration. Since that campaign, LeMahieu has gone deep a modest 41 times over 429 games.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Notches hit in return

    LeMahieu (calf) went 1-for-3 in a loss to Atlanta on Monday.

    LeMahieu returned to action after missing a week due to a calf injury. The veteran played first base and collected a single before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the ninth inning with the game out of reach for New York. LeMahieu has had a rough season at the plate, slashing .241/.315/.372 with eight homers, 29 RBI, 35 runs and a career-worst 22.8 percent strikeout rate.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Included in Monday's lineup

    LeMahieu (calf) is in the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta.

    LeMahieu has not appeared in a game since being scratched from last Wednesday's lineup with a tight calf, but he is ready to return to the field. He will hit sixth and man first base rather than serve as the designated hitter in his return, so it appears the Yankees are confident that he has put the injury behind him.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Remains out Sunday

    LeMahieu (calf) isn't in the Yankees' lineup Sunday against Miami.

    LeMahieu's sore right calf will keep him out of the lineup for a fifth consecutive game Sunday, but the veteran third baseman will be available off the bench and could return to the lineup Monday against Atlanta, per Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will continue to start at third base, allowing Billy McKinney to man left field.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Still sidelined

    LeMahieu (calf) remains absent from the lineup ahead of Saturday's game against the Marlins.

    LeMahieu hasn't played since Monday while dealing with a sore right calf. A trip to the injured list appears unlikely, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports, as the veteran took grounders at third base prior to Saturday's game and appears to be working toward his return. Isiah Kiner-Falefa remains the starting third baseman for now.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Remains out with tight calf

    LeMahieu (calf) remains out of the lineup Friday at Miami.

    LeMahieu was scratched from Wednesday's series finale versus the White Sox due to right calf tightness and will take another day off for rest and treatment. Imaging scans taken Thursday showed no structural damage, per Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record. Isiah Kiner-Falefa is covering third base and batting leadoff Friday versus the Marlins.
