At $12M annually?





That is the current rumbling.




He has played virtually his entire career at second base. Out of 892 games, he has played less than 6% of those at a position other than second. Unclear then how the Yankees would consider him some super utility man.


And for $12m bucks, it sounds like he will be the starting 2nd sacker until Didi returns.

That isn't what Jack Curry is saying.  He's going to be the utility infielder.  He'll probably get more PA than most utility IF do, but that is going to be his role.  



And Neil Walker had primarily played 2B in his career too...  until he came here and played 1B, 2B, 3B and RF.  You guys are overrating the lack of experience at other positions.  He's a good defender.  He'll get experience by playing those positions this year.

I like the acquisition, but seems he'd have to start at 2B which means Gleyber moves to SS. If Tulo stays with the team that makes him the UT IF. He can play all IF positions and, considering his injury history, maybe that'd be for the best. Of course, it's a long way to opening day.


The question becomes...what happens when Didi returns?

As reported....




The Yankees plan to use D.J. LeMahieu all around the infield (1B, 2B and 3B), per source. They view him as a versatile, everyday player who gives them options. If Troy Tulowitzki needs a day or gets hurt, they can move Gleyber Torres to SS and plug LeMahieu in at 2B.

Ninja! It figures you have no issue with this overpaid Wade. They could’ve had Lowrie whos a lefty for a cheaper price. Your best argument is that DJ will learn the other positions on the fly, huh? You have to be the Trashmans son, the way you kiss his butt. I can’t wait till all these signings expose our brilliant GM for the dummy he is and you running around defending him at every turn. It’ll be very entertaining!

When Didi returns, LeMahieu will continue to be the utility infielder...  which is what he's going to be doing before Didi returns :)

The Yankees plan to use LeMahieu as a versatile player around the infield. They will use him at second base, first base and third base.
