DJ LeMahieu leaves Rockies to join New York Yankees

DJ LeMahieu leaves Rockies to join New York Yankees

According to The Score in Chicago, the White Sox remain a viable landing spot with only Chicago, the Phillies and the New York Yankees as known contenders for Machado.

LeMahieu will reportedly make $24 million over the next two seasons in the Bronx.

It has been more than three weeks since Machado met with the Yanks in NY, and Jack Curry of the YES Network reports that there has been barely any communication between the two sides over that period.

The 30-year-old won the National League batting title in 2016, hitting.348.

The deal has yet to be announced publicly by the team. The New York Yankees already added shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to their infield.

LeMahieu also missed time in 2018 with an oblique injury.




NY brought in Tulowitzki with the understanding that if he's healthy he'll be playing shortstop.

Plus, he was a fan-favorite, making this move hurt even more.

The answer might very well be "no" if Machado refuses to lower his expectations; the Yankees' party line is they will not pay him anywhere near $300 million.

With Greg Bird and Luke Voit still on the roster at first base, the LeMahieu signing may make Andujar an immensely population trade chip again.

The Yankees don't have a glaring need for Machado, so many will jump to the conclusion that they've moved on from Machado. The White Sox have all but gathered Machado's Miami training buddies by signing Jay and landing Machado's brother-in-law Yonder Alonso, so who's to say the Phils' addition of Dickerson isn't a similar ploy to catch one of free agency's biggest fish?
