Braves: DJ LeMahieu & Atlanta have had discussions this offseason

One of the best players on the MLB Free Agent Market has been linked to Atlanta.

Alex Anthopoulos loves to kick the tires on any name available, but LeMahieu would make a lot of sense. He can play third base, which is about the only spot I could see him having on the infield. LeMahieu has had a very impressive past few seasons. He’s won two batting titles, two Silver Slugger awards, and three Gold Gloves.

LeMahieu hit .348 in 2016, then hit an insane .364 with a .421 OBP & 1.011 OPS in 2020. Over his last two seasons with the Yankees, LeMahieu has finished top 4 twice in MVP voting. Including a shortened 2020 season (195 games), DJ has posted:

 

.346/.398/.555/.952, 36 HRs, 43 doubles, 4 triples, & 129 RBI

 

Needless to say, I’d be very excited if Atlanta was to ink him to a deal.
