Yankees sign DJ LeMahieu, appear out on Manny Machado

REPORTS: Manny Machado Still Seeking More Than $325 Million, Yankees Out

He won the National League batting title in 2016 when he hit.348 and had a.416 on-base percentage over the course of 149 games. Of course, he's had the benefit of playing half his games at Coors Field as a member of the Rockies for most of his career.

It's also worth mentioning that the Yankees recently signed Troy Tulowitzki, a longtime teammate of LeMahieu's in Colorado.

Additionally, he can play third-base and fill in for Andujar if they choose to DH him and utilize his bat over his glove. Of course, LeMahieu could also be in line to serve as a roving infielder once Gregorius returns. Friday's move now raises even more confusion over Miguel Andujar's status on the Yankees' roster. The White Sox had the second-lowest payroll in 2018, and they've got a core of young players that will be cheap for the next few years.

The Phillies' meeting with Bryce Harper in Las Vegas went so well that the team may be shifting its focus to Harper instead of Manny Machado, according to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, who cited a pair of sources.

The Chinese ministry of foreign affairs said it was "greatly concerned" and that it expects Poland to "justly" manage the case. Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that.

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, Machado's camp has indicated there is a mystery team involved in discussions for landing the prized free agent beyond the heavily rumored Phillies and White Sox.

The Yankees plan to use LeMahieu, a three-time Gold Glover, in a versatile role around the infield. In fact, many believe that Machado prefers the Yankees to other options. Both work out with and are close friends of Machado. Middleton told Skversky that the meeting was "really positive", and that they "got to understand what [Bryce] would be like for the clubhouse and community".

There was speculation that Machado might be willing to take a discount to play with the Yankees, who were his first choice.
