DJ LeMahieu (2B) NY-A - Feb. 21
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=812254

LeMahieu said Thursday that he's fully healthy again following October surgery to repair a sports hernia, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: LeMahieu noted that he's been able to take batting practice for much of the winter, so getting his timing back at the plate shouldn't be much of an issue once the lockout ends and the Yankees are able to reconvene for workouts. After posting a career-best 1.011 OPS during the 60-game 2020 campaign, LeMahieu took a major step back in the slugging department in 2021, posting an .094 ISO. He was at least able to maintain his strong eye at the plate, walking in a career-best 10.9 percent of his plate appearances while striking out a modest 13.8 percent of the time.

Daniel Epstein makes the case at BP that

THE DEADENED BASEBALL KILLED D.J. LEMAHIEU'S SEASON

<spray charts for 2020 and 2022>

2022 is a busier chart given the longer season, but the home runs in right field weren’t as abundant. Only six of them cleared the wall at all (five in right field) despite having similar exit velocities to the prior year’s hits. A lot of them died on the warning track.

That home run cluster didn’t go away. It’s still visible in right, but it moved inward. There are a whole bunch of gray dots near the right-field fence. It stands to reason that these shots would have cleared the wall with a livelier baseball instead of landing in the right fielder’s glove.

Word today that LeMahieu was playing through a sports hernia last year which may have led to his drop in production.

LeMahieu had 42 chances to go-first-to third on a single and did only six times.

Two explanations: he's not very fast and the right-handed batters who followed him, more often than not, hit the singles to left.

In the category of Bases Taken on five other events on the bases (wild pitches, balks, passed balls, sacrifice flies, and runners moved up on defensive indifference), LeMahieu shone: third in the majors in this category with 26.

Given his limitations, he's a very good baserunner.
