So how soon until DJ is the everyday leadoff hitter?

Should be yesterday.  He’s clearly the best option for leadoff in this lineup.  Right left bent crooked I don’t give 2 craps.  If only reason Gardner is batting leadoff vs RHP is because he’s LEFTY that’s laughable.  He sucks and is finished as a regular in mlb.  He’s 35 coming off a terrible season.  He should be exposed to 350-400 at bats at most at this point.  I can assure you this no manager is altering their bullpen strategy because LEFT HANDED Brett Gardner is leading off with a bunch of righties behind you.

I’m liking this bet more and more.

 

DJ provides an element of balance to the both the Yankees’ youth and age and its homerun-hitting strikeout-laden lineup.

It would be ironic that injuries to Stanton and Andujar could make the Yankees a better overall team. I actually think DJ at third and Frazier in LF could work out pretty well for them. Especially if Bird finds his way and starts hitting. I'm excited to see how this plays out. As The Yanks Turn...

To get 3B eligibility he needs 5 games started at 3B to 10 games played.

Yup, you can go to Players -> Position Eligibility and do a search for him; he needs two more games started or seven more games played (at least on Yahoo).

He's been great leading off and consistently clutch this yankees win streak. But Hick is back and de facto lead off, leaving DJ where? He wasn't even meant to be in lineup today before it rained out.

Thinking of ditching for La Stella (!!!) if he hits 6th or 7th...

Moving out of leadoff spot should only help him.  Minimal speed/power but he can hit.  Just needs more opportunity with people on base.

I agree with this.  He was also only sitting because he had started 9 straight games after coming back from a knee injury.  Fair to want to give him a day off.
