Player Outlook
DJ LeMahieu batted .327 and then .364 during his first two seasons as a Yankee, but he's dropped off considerably in the three campaigns since. Last season, the veteran posted the lowest batting average (.243) and highest strikeout rate (22.2 percent) of his career. It could be that the foot injury that derailed the second half of his 2022 campaign continued to bother LeMahieu into 2023, but there's also the distinct possibility that the 35-year-old is simply losing ground to Father Time. Despite the recent falloff, there are a few reasons to believe LeMahieu could rebound to an extent next season: he still has near-elite bat-to-ball skills, and he experienced a mini-resurgence between the All-Star break and the end of August last year, posting an .879 OPS over 37 games before falling off again during the final month of the season. It's unlikely that he'll return to the form that netted him two batting titles, and he's a below-average contributor in power and speed, so fantasy managers shouldn't look to LeMahieu before the very late rounds of drafts. Still, opportunity should be there, either as New York's starting third baseman or as a utility man in a near-everyday role.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Taking seat Sunday

    LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. LeMahieu took a seat for Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Rays after he was hit by a pitch on his left pinkie finger Wednesday, but he was back in the lineup for the first two games of the Yankees' series in Baltimore. After going hitless in eight at-bats between Friday and Saturday, LeMahieu will hit the bench Sunday for what appears to be a maintenance day heading into the All-Star break. Oswaldo Cabrera will replace LeMahieu at third base.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Back in lineup Friday

    LeMahieu is starting at third base and leading off for the Yankees on Friday. LeMahieu was held out of Thursday's contest after he was hit by a pitch on his left pinkie finger and later fouled a ball off his neck Wednesday. A CT scan on his neck came back clean, so Thursday's absence was likely precautionary. LeMahieu has hit .417 (5-for-12) over his past four games.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Not in Thursday's lineup

    LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds. LeMahieu started the previous five games and will receive a day off after he went 4-for-19 with two doubles, three walks and three RBI in that stretch. Oswaldo Cabrera will take over at the hot corner Thursday.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Halts slump with two hits

    LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Blue Jays. LeMahieu entered the game mired in a 6-for-42 (.143) slump but collected a couple of base hits, each of which brought in a run, while also adding just his second extra-base hit of the campaign. Despite being unable to find his footing at the plate, LeMahieu, who raised his season average to .188 thanks to Sunday's effort, has maintained a regular role in the Yankees' lineup since returning from the IL in late May due to a fractured foot.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Officially activated

    The Yankees reinstated LeMahieu (foot) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday. A fracture of LeMahieu's right foot has kept him on the injured list all season, but he will return to make his season debut Tuesday while starting at third base and batting ninth. The 35-year-old veteran will act as New York's primary third baseman going forward, though he's expected to receive a handful of off days initially as the Yankees attempt to ease him back into action.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Slated to bat ninth in return

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said in an interview on Jomboy Media's "Talkin' Yanks" podcast that LeMahieu (foot) will start at third base and bat ninth Tuesday versus the Angels in his season debut. LeMahieu had appeared in line for leadoff duties with the Yankees before suffering a non-displaced fracture of his right foot shortly before Opening Day. However, Anthony Volpe looks to have a tight grip on the leadoff job now, pushing LeMahieu to the bottom of the batting order for the time being. LeMahieu is slated to be the team's primary third baseman, although he will be given extra off days initially as the Yankees ease him back into action.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Shifting to 60-day IL

    The Yankees transferred LeMahieu (foot) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Saturday. LeMahieu's move to the 60-day IL has no impact on his expected return date of May 28. It will, however, free up a 40-man roster spot for Kevin Smith, who was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace infielder Jon Berti (calf) on the 26-man active roster. LeMahieu will operate as New York's primary third baseman once he returns from the IL, though he'll receive more days off initially as he eases his way back from a non-displaced fracture of his right foot.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Tracking toward May 28 return

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday in an interview with Jomboy Media's "Talkin' Yanks" podcast that he expects LeMahieu (foot) to be activated from the 10-day injured list May 28. LeMahieu went 2-for-3 with three walks in six plate appearances during his two rehab games with Double-A Somerset following the resumption of his rehab assignment and is slated to be transferred to High-A Hudson Valley to continue rehabbing. Boone also reiterated that LeMahieu will be the team's primary third baseman when he returns from the 10-day injured list, though the plan is to mix in more off days for him initially since he's been on the shelf all season with a non-displaced fracture of his right foot.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Reaches four times in rehab game

    LeMahieu (foot) went 1-for-1 with three walks, two runs and an RBI while playing five innings at third base in Sunday's rehab appearance with Double-A Somerset. LeMahieu had plenty of opportunities to put his right foot -- which he broke on a foul ball March 16 -- to the test Sunday given his time in the field and on the basepaths. The veteran infielder is three games into his rehab assignment and has gone 2-for-7 with three walks, two runs and an RBI thus far. Per the Associated Press, LeMahieu is slated to play back-to-back minor-league games Tuesday and Wednesday this week before playing in three consecutive contests over the weekend. He could be activated from the injured list soon thereafter.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Unlikely to return next week

    LeMahieu (foot) could come off the injured list during the Yankees' West Coast road trip that begins May 24, though manager Aaron Boone stated Friday that the veteran infielder is unlikely to be activated at the beginning of that nine-game stretch, per MLB.com. LeMahieu restarted a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Friday, going 1-for-2 with a single while playing three innings at third base. Boone stated earlier in the day that "it's possible" LeMahieu will be activated during New York's road swing against the Padres, Angels and Giants that starts May 24, but the skipper added that he doesn't expect that to happen at the start of the trip. LeMahieu is expected to get the day off Saturday before participating in his second rehab game Sunday, and Boone suggested that the organization plans to be cautious with the 34-year-old's rehab, explaining, "Part of the reason it has taken a long time is because he and us are going to be absolutely committed to this thing not being an issue when he goes to play."

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Set to restart rehab stint

    LeMahieu (foot) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday or Friday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. LeMahieu had embarked upon a rehab stint April 23 but lasted only one inning due to soreness in his injured right foot. He's been ramping back up of late by taking live batting practice and fielding grounders, and he recently resumed running the bases. Per Joyce, LeMahieu's restarted rehab assignment will begin with Double-A Somerset and is expected to include "a decent amount of games."

    LeMahieu (foot) ran the bases Sunday and will take live batting practice again Tuesday, Mark Didtler of the Associated Press reports.

The veteran infielder has also been taking batting practice and fielding ground balls, and he could restart a minor-league rehab assignment soon.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Gets in batting practice Saturday

    LeMahieu (foot) participated in live batting practice Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. LeMahieu traveled with the team to Tampa Bay and hit off rehabbing right-hander JT Brubaker (elbow). The veteran third baseman continues to ramp up his activities as he works his way back from the non-displaced right foot fracture he sustained in spring training. LeMahieu made a rehab appearance April 23 with Double-A Somerset, but he was pulled from the game after the first inning due to swelling in his right foot. He could be ready to resume the rehab assignment soon.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Continuing to ramp up

    LeMahieu (foot) took batting practice on the Yankee Stadium field Wednesday and will travel with the club on its upcoming road trip to Tampa, per MLB.com. In addition to swinging the bat, LeMahieu has also been fielding ground balls as he works his way back from the non-displaced right foot fracture he suffered March 16. By traveling with New York on its next road trip, he'll be able to take live at-bats and do infield work at the team's training complex, which happens to be in Tampa. Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that the club intends to ramp up LeMahieu's "baseball activities all week" and indicated that the veteran infielder could potentially start a minor-league rehab assignment soon thereafter.

  • Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Shut down for seven days

    LeMahieu is still dealing with swelling in his right foot and will be shut down from baseball activity for a week, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. LeMahieu had to make an early exit from his first rehab game at Double-A Somerset on Tuesday after his fractured right foot began bothering him in the first inning. After getting checked out by team doctors Wednesday, he will officially be pulled off his rehab assignment and shut down from all activity for the next seven days. Next steps for the 35-year-old infielder will be determined once his seven days are up, though it seems his target return date will be pushed back well into May.
