New York — Gold Glove-winning free-agent second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and the New York Yankees have reached an agreement on a two-year, $24 million contract, according to multiple reports. The deal that would appear to eliminate New York as a destination for Manny Machado. The 30-year-old LeMahieu, a former star at Birmingham Brother Rice, spent the previous eight seasons with Colorado at hitter-friendly Coors Field and won the NL batting title in 2016 with a .348 average. He hit .276 last year with 15 homers and 62 RBIs, and he won his second straight Gold Glove and third overall. New York was seeking infielders in the absence of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is not expected back until summer. The Yankees signed former Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki last week and said he will be their starting shortstop. LeMahieu likely will see time at second, third and possibly even first.
