Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu makes All-MLB First Team for second straight season

DJ LeMahieu is 2 for 2 in a pair of chances to make the All-MLB First Team. After earning a spot on the inaugural 2019 team, LeMahieu received a consecutive appearance among all second basemen when the 2020 list was revealed Wednesday evening.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman joined LeMahieu back in 2019. Among the 2020 players of note, Mets ace Jacob deGrom also secured a spot.

In a regular season that was shortened to 60 games, LeMahieu made 50 appearances, winning the American League batting title after hitting .364 — a career-high for the 10th-year pro.

LeMahieu, 32, slashed .364/.421/.520 with 10 homers and batted in 27 runs. As a first-year Yankee for the 2019 season, LeMahieu slashed .327/.375/.518 with 26 long balls and 102 runs batted in — both career-high numbers.

As SNY’s Andy Martino has reported, LeMahieu is a free agent but the Yankees are likely to prioritize his re-signing. On Nov. 11, he turned down a $18.9 million qualifying offer from the Yankees.

While LeMahieu has not spoken up publicly, Luke Voit appeared confident in a reunion with the Yankees for 2021 and beyond. Voit said Wednesday that he would put his money on LeMahieu returning.
