D.J. LeMahieu to Rehab for Patriots this Week

D.J. LeMahieu is coming to Somerset Yankees infielder D.J. LeMahieu will make a rehab assignment with the Somerset Patriots, but it will happen with the Patriots on the road when they face the Reading Fightin' Phils on Tuesday, April 23. LeMahieu was placed on the 10-day injured list on March 25 with a right foot contusion. The three-time All-Star (NL 2015, 2017 and AL 2019) has an MLB career .292 average with 1,697 hits, 864 runs, 122 home runs, 625 RBI and 93 stolen bases in 1,561 games. Over the past two seasons, LeMahieu has struggled to stay on the field the past couple of years for the Yankees, playing in 125 games in 2022 and 136 games last year. His average has also tumbled the past two seasons. The Yankees would love to see LeMahieu return to someone close to the player he was when he won a batting title in 2020.
