Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: DJ LeMahieu

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: DJ LeMahieu

He’s more compelling than you might think. I’ll be the first to admit it - coming into this offseason, I didn’t think much of DJ LeMahieu as a potential free agent target for the Milwaukee Brewers. Sure, LeMahieu won a batting title with the Rockies by hitting .348 in 2016, but according to both wRC+ and OPS+, that season was the only one in the second baseman’s parts of eight years in the big leagues that his overall batting line was above the league average. In 3,799 plate appearances for Colorado, LeMahieu has hit .298/.350/.406, but when accounting for the park factors used by...

The Twins need to sign a third baseman this offseason

The Twins need to sign a third baseman this offseason

If last year is any indication, Miguel Sano is not cut out for the job. It is fairly common knowledge to baseball fans that the Minnesota Twins will need to add an infielder or two this winter. The focus has mostly been on first basemen, such as C.J. Cron and Paul Goldschmidt, or middle infielders such as Jed Lowrie and DJ LeMahieu, but I think they have another pressing position of need. Third base for the Twins could be covered by Miguel Sano in the immediate future, or it could be a glaring hole, with absolutely no options available to fill in. Let’s get this out of the way first:...

Milwaukee Brewers: DJ LeMahieu not the right fit

The Milwaukee Brewers have a glaring hole at the keystone as we look toward the 2019 season. DJ LeMahieu is among the top available second basemen on this year’s free agent market. However, the Milwaukee Brewers are not likely to be in the running for the former batting champion’s services. Although LeMahieu would be a […] Milwaukee Brewers: DJ LeMahieu not the right fit - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rockies news and links for November 28, 2018 Colorado Rockies: 3 teams have had talks with DJ LeMahieu | Rox Pile As hard as it is to consider, the Rockies are not very likely to bring back stoic second baseman DJ LeMahieu. There are simply too many big future purchases to consider, as well as the signing of Charlie Blackmon with a long contract, that the Rockies cannot afford to hang onto him. The Rockies have promising prospects that will be able to fill the hold at second base, like Brendan Rodgers, Ryan McMahon, and Garrett Hampson. It appears that there have already been three teams...

Washington Nationals should avoid DJ LeMahieu

The Washington Nationals have reportedly checked in on free agent second baseman DJ LeMahieu. They would be wise to consider other options. The offseason is still in its early stages, but the Washington Nationals have easily been the most aggressive team this winter. Since their season ended in disappointing fashion at the end of September, […] Washington Nationals should avoid DJ LeMahieu - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rockies news and links for Sunday, November 27, 2018 The Hidden Upside of a Normal Free Agent | FanGraphsEven as far back as last offseason, the tea leaves were indicating that the Colorado Rockies and second baseman DJ LeMahieu were not going to be together come the 2019 season. LeMahieu said himself that he didn’t expect there to be any extension talks. News from Monday revealed three teams that have had “at least preliminary talks” with LeMahieu—the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Washington Nationals and the Minnesota Twins. For wherever LeMahieu winds up, what kind of player will his...

Nationals Rumors: No need at second base, but what if there’s value to be found?

Nationals Rumors: No need at second base, but what if there’s value to be found?

DJ LeMahieu, who’s a solid defender at second base without any draft pick compensation tied to him this winter, could be just the sort of value that convinces the Nationals to add an infielder... Washington Nationals’ General Manager Mike Rizzo told reporters at the GM Meetings last month that he was happy with the middle infield depth in the organization and didn’t see second base as one of the positions the team needed to shore up this winter as they build the roster for 2019 and beyond. “We like our situation in the middle of the infield with Trea [Turner] and Howie [Kendrick]...

Colorado Rockies: 3 teams have had talks with DJ LeMahieu

According to Jon Morosi of MLB.com and MLB Network, thus far, there have been three teams that have spoken to former Colorado Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu and his agency about a potential free agent deal. However, none of the three teams mentioned are the Rockies. The chance of the Colorado Rockies resigning their former […] Colorado Rockies: 3 teams have had talks with DJ LeMahieu - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Friday Rockpile: A Black Friday must-have—Ryan McMahon

Rockies news and links for November 23, 2018 Colorado Rockies: How will Ryan McMahon factor in 2019? | Rox Pile Ryan McMahon made something of a name for himself with the Rockies in 2018. He may not have had a ton of playing time, but in the games he did see, he had many impressive moments, like his multiple game-winning home runs. So we have to ask ourselves what 2019 will look like for the young man. He has the versatility to fill in at second base in the instance that we don’t hang onto DJ LeMahieu. He would certainly provide an affordable option for the team. He’s shown us that he...

Rockies news and links for November 19, 2018 Colorado Rockies simulation: Who ended up with these three players? | Rox Pile Recently, the writers over at Rox Pile have had some simulated offseason moves to see how the Rockies might fare with different players. Ultimately, they opted for a more solid first baseman, and they worked to keep Adam Ottavino after his dominant relief work in 2018. The hypothetical simulation included an outcome for DJ LeMahieu. In the pretend situation, the Padres ended up with LeMahieu, and Carlos Gonzalez headed to the Chicago White Sox. Gerardo Parra also...
