DJ LeMahieu Goes 2-For-3 On Tuesday

New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu came into Tuesdays game with a rough .670 spring OPS but picked up a pair of hits against the Red Sox on Tuesday. LeMahieu is slated to start the year as the starting second baseman for the Yankees after hitting .327 with a .893 OPS last season. LeMahieu pushed his barrel rate up to 7.5% while maintaining a strong 91.7 mph average exit velocity and 47.2% hard-hit rate, resulting in an impressive .417 xwOBA on contact. With a 6.6% swinging-strike rate and a 30.2% chase rate, LeMahieu also boasts a strong plate approach that kept his strikeout rate down to 13.7% last year. Based on last years performance, LeMahieu should again post an OPS north of .850 with a sub-20% strikeout rate, making him a valuable fantasy option.

Yankees Haven't Discussed Extension For DJ LeMahieu

New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu said there haven't been any discussions yet with the team regarding a contract extension. LeMahieu was one of the best values in all of baseball in 2019, as he broke out to the tune of a .327/.375/.518 slash line with 26 home runs, 109 runs scored, 102 RBI and five stolen bases in 145 games in his first year in the Bronx. He was named to the All-Star team for the third time and finished fourth in the voting for American League MVP. It may be hard for LeMahieu to match those numbers in his second year with the Bombers, but his contact-first approach should at least guarantee a high average for his fantasy owners. Don't overpay, but LeMahieu is currently ranked as RotoBaller's No. 8 fantasy second baseman behind Whit Merrifield.
