Yankees add D.J. LeMahieu to injured list
The New York Yankees are going to place infielder DJ LeMahieu on the injured list prior to Thursday evening's game, manager Aaron Boone said on a radio show Thursday afternoon.
The move isn't entirely surprising, as LeMahieu has been dealing with an injured big toe on his right foot for weeks.
In fact, LeMahieu missed both ends of a doubleheader on Wednesday due to the issue and Boone said then there was a possibility the Yankees would place LeMahieu on the injured list.
LeMahieu, 34, is hitting .262/.358/.381 (113 OPS+) with 18 doubles, 12 homers, 46 RBI, 74 runs and 3.8 WAR this season, but as he's dealt with the toe injury, his performance has suffered.
