DJ LeMahieu was "recently contacted" by the New York Mets, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network. (Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Heyman said this could potentially set up a "New York-New York battle" for LeMahieu, who has been considered a top priority for the Yankees this offseason. The Nationals have also been linked to the second baseman but either New York team seems like a more realistic possibility to sign him. Both possess pockets deep enough to meet LeMahieu's reported asking price (around $125 million). The 32-year-old had a fantastic 2020, slashing .364/.421/.590 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI over 195 at-bats. It's nice to have a little excitement during this dreadfully slow offseason.
