After another banging season in The Bronx, DJ Lehmahoe finished third in AL MVP voting.
Lehmahoe led the majors with a .364 average, but the White Sox ‘Jose Abreu won the award, taking 21 of 30 first-place finishes.
Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez finished second, while Lemahieu finished first.
The 32-year-old LeMahieu is a free agent this week after rejecting the Yankees’ offer of $ 18.9 million.
The Yankees are very interested in bringing LeMahieu back, but there is no guarantee that they will not move forward on a three or four-year deal.
LeMahieu said that on Thursday he likes to play in the New York spotlight.
“I enjoy it,” LeMahieu said on the MLB network before the award was announced. “Every game feels that it is a big game. … I think it’s a city that loves baseball. Baseball is my passion, so I think it’s really cool. ”- Dan Martin
The Braves’ first baseman Freddy Freeman won the NL MVP award with ease, topping a trying year that made him ill with COVID-19. He prayed “Please don’t take me.”
Freeman received 28 of 30 first-place ballots. Outfielder Mookie Bates of the Dodgers got the first two places to finish second and Manny Machado, the third baseman of the Padres.
