Disappointed by the Yankees, FA batting champion Dodgers demands $100 million in love call
Will DJ Le Mei-Hue (33) leave the New York Yankees?
Yahoo Sports in the U.S. reported on the 11th (Korean time) that the negotiations between the FA infielder Le Mayhu and the Yankees of the original team are difficult. Although it is mid-January, in addition to Le Mayhu, major FA players such as Trevor Bauer, J.T. Real Muto, George Springer, Marcus Semien, and Marcel Osuna are unsigned.
The Yankees, who have been dominating the FA market as a big hand, are also quiet this winter. He is also not opening his wallet easily to Le Mayhu, who had a strong will to stay with the Yankees. In this atmosphere, Le Mei-Hue also seems to have cooled down 토토놀이터
According to Yahoo Sports, Le Mayhew was disappointed by the Yankees’ slow negotiation attitude. He wants to sign more than $100 million over third baseman Josh Donaldson, who signed with the Minnesota Twins for four years and $92 million in January last year, but the Yankees are lukewarm. Le Mayhew is widely different from the Yankees as he expects to reach J.D. Martinez, who signed a five-year $110 million contract with the Boston Red Sox in February 2018.
Several clubs are interested in Le Mayhu. The Los Angeles Dodgers, which are looking for a replacement for the FA Justin Turner, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, and St. Louis Cardinals have contacted the Le Mayhew agent.
Le Mayhu plans to meet with teams that need a second or third base position this week. Attention is focused on the Dodgers, which are not easy to renew their contract with third baseman Turner. The Dodgers expressed interest in Le Mayhu throughout the offseason.
Le Mei-Hue, who made his debut with the Chicago Cubs in 2011 and played for the Yankees from 2019 after passing through the Colorado Rockies, is batting .35 with 85 home runs and 478 RBIs in his 10 seasons. Three All-Star, three Gold Gloves, two Silver Sluggers and two batting kings.
After winning the National League batting title in 2016 (.348) and finishing first in the American League batting average (.364) and on-base percentage (.421) and OPS (1.011), he also ranked third in MVP voting.
