Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday in an interview with the "Foul Territory" podcast
that he would like to see LeMahieu emerge as the team's leadoff hitter during the 2024 season.
The skipper isn't committing to any lineup spots yet, but he noted when discussing the leadoff spot that he was "excited" with how LeMahieu finished the season and is hoping the 35-year-old can "solve" the leadoff spot for the Yanks. Boone also mentioned Alex Verdugo
and Gleyber Torres
as potential leadoff candidates. The manager is tentatively planning to hit Juan Soto
second and Aaron Judge
