D.J. LeMahieu wasn’t in the Yankees lineup on Opening Day. But, since then, he’s proven to be one of the most valuable Yankees.
LeMahieu enters play on Friday leading the majors with a .335 batting average as he looks to become the fourth Yankee ever to lead the majors in average — and the first since Mickey Mantle did it back in 1956.
