DJ LeMahieu won the National League batting title in 2016, has been named to two All-Star teams and won three gold gloves at second base.

MLB hot stove: DJ LeMahieu's market includes at least 4 teams, report says


The market is heating up for second baseman DJ LeMahieu.

The two-time All-Star is drawing interest from at least two teams in the Rays and Giants and another couple in the Dodgers and Brewers, which are good fits, according to Fancred Sports.

LeMahieu won the National League batting title with the Rockies in 2016 and earned three gold gloves in Colorado.

He is a career .298 hitter with a .350 on-base percentage.

His game doesn't come with a lot of power as he has 49 home runs in eight MLB seasons but he has finished in the top 10 in batting average in the National League three times in his career which levels out the lack of pop.

But, his home/road splits might scare some teams off. He is a .330 hitter at home with most of his games coming at Coors Field. He is a .264 hitter on the road.
