What’s wrong? Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu ‘feeling really good at plate,’ but hitting .260

DJ LeMahieu was more talkative than usual answering questions

from reporters before Wednesday night’s 8-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

There was more pep in his voice, too. The Yankees infielder also was smiling a lot.

Usually one to downplay his achievements, the three-time

batting champion thought it was “definitely a cool thing”

reaching 1,500 career hits the night before and he proceeded to share details of his first big-league hit.

LeMahieu slapped an infield single off Cardinals left-

hander Jamie Garcia on June 3, 2011 in St. Louis.
