NEW YORK (AP) DJ LeMahieu is putting away his mittens and packing more mitts.A star second baseman for Colorado Andrew Benintendi Jersey , LeMahieu is set to join a crowded New York Yankees infield.I was told to bring a lot of gloves, he said Wednesday on a conference call.Thats fine with LeMahieu, who became a free agent after the season and got a $24 million, two-year contract with the Yankees.LeMahieu was a three-time Gold Glover for the Rockies and hasnt played anywhere else the last four seasons. He has made 24 starts at third base in past years and also dabbled at first base and shortstop.LeMahieu said hes pretty comfortable playing multiple positions.New York has plenty of infielders and, the Yankees being the Yankees, no one is willing to completely rule them out of making a late play for All-Star free agent Manny Machado.Second baseman Gleyber Torres and third baseman Miguel Andujar were among the top rookies in the majors last year. Shortstop Didi Gregorius could return this summer after offseason Tommy John surgery.Plus, the Yankees recently added longtime star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. He didnt play last season while recovering from surgery on both heels LeMahieu recently talked to his former Rockies double-play partner and said hes ready to roll.Greg Bird and Luke Voit mostly split first base for the Yankees last season. LeMahieu is aware he could see time there, too.Kind of see how it unfolds, he said.The 30-year-old LeMahieu was a two-time All-Star during seven seasons with Colorado and led the majors with a .348 batting average in 2016. He hit .310 in 2017 and dipped to .276 last season.LeMahieu had a career-high 15 home runs last year but is considered more of a high-contact, low-strikeout hitter. His move is certain to bring up debate about the Coors Field effect he is a lifetime .329 hitter at that park Luis Tiant Jersey , .266 elsewhere.It wouldve been nice to stay in Colorado, he said. Once the Rockies said they were going in a different direction for the future, LeMahieu said the Yankees were at the top of his list.LeMahieu recalled, with enthusiasm, the only two games he played in the Bronx, in 2016.To play at Yankee Stadium was pretty cool, he said.LeMahieu hasnt gotten to the playoffs very often. In his postseason debut, the Rockies lost the 2017 NL wild-card game. Last season, they beat the Cubs in the wild-card game, then lost to Milwaukee in the Division Series.LeMahieu joins a Yankees club that won 100 games last season in earning an AL wild-card berth and has won a record 27 World Series championships.You look at this team on paper , its stacked, he said.LeMahieus deal raises the Yankees projected luxury tax payroll to about $213 million. The threshold is $206 million, and the team still could trade pitcher Sonny Gray and his $6.5 million salary.NOTES: The Yankees acquired LHP Ronald Roman and $50,000 from Arizona for OF Tim Locastro. Roman, 17, was signed by the Diamondbacks last July as a nondrafted free agent and will make his pro debut this season. Locastro, 26, went 2 for 12 in 21 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers the last two seasons and was traded to the Yankees in November for a minor leaguer and cash. With their season on the line, Walker Buehler will toe the rubber for the Dodgers. Certainly not a stranger to big games this month, Buehler will look to jolt his team back into the series."The Dodgers find themselves in dire need of a win Friday Tony Conigliaro Jersey , trailing 2-0 in the World Series to a really good Red Sox team. It goes without saying that Game 3 will be the next closest thing to a must-win game. Going down 3-0 in a best-of-seven is near impossible to overcome. Certainly Dodger manager Dave Roberts understands how difficult it is, playing a part in Bostons well-publicized defeat of the Yankees in 2004. That was the only time a team has come back to win under the circumstances.There was just a momentum and a feeling, Roberts told media Thursday. It just didnt really matter who we were playing, where we were playing. We were just all kind of synced up.Right now on the other side as far as manager and being down 2-0, I think tomorrow obviously is an important game. Were at home to stop the momentum.Roberts will turn to Walker Buehler who is coming off a pressure-filled NLCS Game 7. Buehler came within one out of five brilliant innings Saturday in Milwaukee, striking out seven against no walks. A Christian Yelich solo homer was the only blemish.The 24-year-old is not one to shy away from the spotlight and it couldnt be brighter come Friday night. Outside of one inning in Atlanta when he couldn't find the strike zone, Buehler has pitched well this postseason, striking out at least seven in all three starts.To be in a hostile, really boisterous crowd in Milwaukee and for him to keep his composure and to execute pitches speaks a lot to him, not only to compete but to eliminate kind of the outside noise and still stay within a game plan , Roberts said about Buehlers Game 7 performance. So it just shows a lot of moxie.Buehler will need all the confidence he can muster. Teams that take a 2-0 lead in the World Series have gone on to win about 80 percent of the time (43 of 54). Interestingly enough, the Dodgers make up three of those 11 times a team has made the comeback. They won in 1955 over the Yankees, 1965 over the Twins and 1981 over the Yankees again.Winning four of five games can be an overwhelming thought, but the Dodgers know it all starts with one. Baseball is baseball, Roberts said. Youve still got to go out there and pitch it, catch it and hit it. And weve got to do that better than them.But for us right now, its a game that we really need to win.World Series Game 3 TV & streaming infoLocation: Dodger Stadium, Los AngelesTime: 5:09 p.m. PTTV: FOXStreaming: fuboTV
