With the addition of DJ LeMahieu, the Yankees now have two of the Top 10 second basemen in baseball -- at least according to MLB Network's Top 10 Second Basemen Right Now! show.
Gleyber Torres (No. 8) and LeMahieu (No. 10) made the list.
The full list, in order:
Jose Altuve (Astros), Jed Lowrie (Mets), Whit Merrifield (Royals), Robinson Cano (Mets), Chris Taylor (Dodgers), Scooter Gennett (Reds), Joey Wendle (Rays), Torres, Ben Zobrist (Cubs), LeMahieu.
The MLB Network rankings take into account player performance over the last two seasons, offensive and defensive metrics, advanced statcast data, traditional stats, and "expert analysis by the MLB Network research team."
The 22-year-old Torres excelled in his first year in the majors this past season, hitting .271/.340/.480 with 24 homers and 16 doubles in 123 games.
LeMahieu, who the Yanks inked to a two-year deal last week, hit .294/.350/.418 with 23 homers in 283 game over the last two seasons with the Rockies.
The signing of the 30-year-old LeMahieu is expected to officially take the Yankees out on free agent 3B/SS Manny Machado, but never say never.
