According to a report from MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Mets have recently reached out to LeMahieu, which could set up a battle between the two New York teams to land the three-time All-Star.
The Mets recently contacted D.J. LeMahieu, which could set up a New York-New York battle for the Yankees’ best player two years running.

The Mets have some interesting decisions to make on the infield with Robinson Cano suspended and Andres Gimenez, Jeff McNeil, and Amed Rosario having the versatility to play multiple positions. LeMahieu, of course, could fit in at second or third, and the Mets would be able to move pieces around to fit a star like LeMahieu in their infield in 2021 and beyond.
