DJ LeMayhew (New York Yankees), former batting champion, emphasized that he is in the best condition.

In the 2020 season, LeMayhew recorded a batting average of 0.364 and became the second batting champion after 2016. In response, the Yankees got him by signing a six-year, $90 million contract extension.

However, in the 2021 season and last season, he played in many games, but big and small injuries plagued him. His defense was good, but his batting average dropped to the mid-20s due to a sports hernia and a toe injury.

Will this season be different? In an interview with many media outlets such as ‘Newsday’ and ‘’ on the 20th (Korean time), LeMayheu said, “This spring camp is in 100% physical condition. I want to be able to play without restrictions and get into the season quickly. I am very excited,” he explained.

LeMayhew spent equal minutes at first, second, and third last year, and won a Gold Glove Award for utility at the end of the season. This was his fourth Gold Glove. 카지노사이트

It is expected that the role will not change significantly this season. “I will play the role of a ‘rover’ who plays first base, second base, and third base,” said LeMayhew. Rather, it fits well with my skills that don’t stay in one place, and it helps the team.”

The Yankees currently have Anthony Rizzo at first base, Gleiber Torres at second base, and Oswald Ferraza, Oswald Cabrera, and Isaiah Cainer-Palepa at shortstop. Josh Donelson is on the list at third base, but he is a bit sluggish, and LeMayhew is expected to play mainly at third base.
