Notes 
 LeMahieu will return to the Yankees on a six-year deal, and that is great news for fantasy managers. Since he's been New York, he's provided elite all-around production, most notably in batting average, where he has batted .336. He's blossomed into a 25-home run hitter with plenty of runs and RBI, and a handful of steals that chip in with the category. Add to that LeMahieu's multi-position eligibility and he is a huge asset to every fantasy team. With nothing in his profile to suggest a skills decline, he should be drafted before the third round is out in every fantasy league.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Jimenez is going to miss 5-6 months with a ruptured pectoral tendon, an absolutely brutal blow to a player who was being drafted as a borderline top-10 outfielder. You can draft him with your last pick and hope to be able to stash him on your IL all season long, but for the most part, you can ignore him in redraft formats.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 One of my biggest fades this season. DJL is great, but is more of a real life player than he is a fantasy player. Not reaching for him at his ceiling.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Over the past two season "DJL" has posted a 183 wRC+ while playing at home compared to a 112 figure on the road. Of course, it's always helpful to be hitting in Yankee Stadium. This makes the fact that he re-signed with the Yankees an important one. LeMahieu is going to keep playing half of his games inside Yankee Stadium. The first modern player to win batting titles in both leagues, LeMahieu's presence on the Yankees means that he's the No. 1 fantasy second baseman for this fantasy writer.
