Yankees: Another concern! DJ LeMahieu is pulled from the line up at the last minute

The versatile DJ LeMahieu was removed from the lineup tonight with a stomach bug, so at least in today’s game it will be a noticeable casualty in Aaron Boone’s line up and the New York Yankees. Your quick test of COVID-19 tested negative.

The versatile player and the NYY are preparing in a few more minutes to face the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of the series at Yankee Stadium, which begins at 7:05 p.m. ET:

LeMahieu was going to face a pitcher who hits very well (Aaron Nola): .333 (9-3), although with no home run or RBI. He was replaced in the ninth starter by veteran Rob Brantly, who is a regular catcher.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
