Rosenthal: The Yankees are now out on Manny Machado, right? Well…

The Yankees have signed free-agent second basement DJ LeMahieu, giving them an abundance of infielders.

The Manny Machado sweepstakes were narrowed to two teams Friday, or so we thought. LeMahieu won a surprise National League batting title when he hit.348/.416/.495 in a career year back in 2016, but while he followed that up with a high-quality.310 average in 2017, his power fell off, as he slugged just.409 that season and posted a.099 ISO (slugging minus batting average). Defensively, LeMahieu was tops among qualified second basemen in defensive runs saved last season at plus-18, according to Fangraphs.

As Manny Machado continues to wait out the market, the Yankees have added yet another veteran to their infield.

NY brought in Tulowitzki with the understanding that if he's healthy he'll be playing shortstop.

The Yankees indeed will be stacked up the middle even if they don't sign Machado.

How the government shutdown is impacting food inspections
About a third of those 160 weekly inspections involve facilities that the agency considers "high risk", Gottlieb added. As a result of the shutdown, FDA is not conducting routine inspections of domestic food processing facilities.

With Greg Bird and Luke Voit still on the roster at first base, the LeMahieu signing may make Andujar an immensely population trade chip again.

LeMahieu has also started 41 games in his career at third base and one game at first base.

If offers from the Phillies and White Sox are similar, the Phillies would give Machado a better chance to win immediately, if that is indeed what matters most to him.

Throughout the offseason, the Yankees were said to be uninterested in engaging Machado and his agent, Dan Lozano, about a contract in the 10-year, $300 million range and he would only fall to them if the Phillies and White Sox didn't come close to those numbers.

The Yankees have not publicly made Machado an offer - and with LeMahieu, Andujar, Torres, and Tulowitzki now - they may never get to that point.
