Done deal: yankees have agreed a contract deal what $87.6 million…..

TAMPA — This, more or less, is what it’s supposed to look like.

Juan Soto put on a laser show batting in front of Aaron Judge. Giancarlo Stanton legged out a double. DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres and Anthony Rizzo made solid contact and found holes.

In what amounted to roughly a dress rehearsal for the Opening Day lineup, the Yankees’ offense looked ready for the bright lights. Perhaps to smash them, in Soto’s case.

A facsimile of the Yankees’ starting lineup — with the exception of Anthony Volpe, who had played a day earlier — took the stage and mashed eight runs in the first five innings of an eventual 9-8 win over the Braves.

Manager DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres and Anthony Rizzo said Sunday’s 1-through-8 “could be” the same when the regular season begins March 28 in Houston.

Leadoff man LeMahieu bounced a single in three at-bats. Soto-Judge-Rizzo-Torres-Stanton represents a top and middle of the lineup that has as high a ceiling as any in baseball.
