New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Two Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images | Randy Miller: It’s no secret that most Yankees fans were less than thrilled by the DJ LeMahieu signing over the offseason. He quickly proved us all wrong by being one of the best players on the team. The versatile infielder is only signed through the 2020 season, but revealed that he’d love to stay in New York and is definitely open to a contract extension.

CBS Sports | Dayn Perry: Another Yankee who has had a heck of a year is Gleyber Torres. The 22-year-old currently leads the Bombers with 37 home runs, and just might break one of Alex Rodriguez’s home run records. The former Yankee hit 42 home runs in 1998 prior to turning 23. It’s too bad the Yankees don’t have any games against the Orioles left on the docket. | Randy Miller: Giancarlo Stanton is expected back from the injured list sometime during this homestand. Aaron Boone indicated that he might be limited to a couple of innings or at-bats per game for the first few days to get him back into the swing of things. Since the minor league season is over, this will have to do instead of playing in rehab games.
