Latest Update Headley signs with Yankees Mon Dec, 15, 10:56 AM
Bats well from both sides with a sweet swing. Takes a smart and patient approach at the plate. Has some speed. Is pretty good with the glove.
Flaws: : Despite very good patience, he strikes out too much and doesn't justify it with enough power. Needs to show he can play consistently well in all areas.
With Headley on board, the Yankees will have first, third and the DH spot well covered by him, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira. It's likely that all three end up on the disabled list at the same time so it should be interesting to see who they keep on as their utility player.as he could see the most time on the field out of all of them.Analyst: Howard Bender
Cashman told a media outlet that Chase Headley wants to return to Yankees and that he's been in regular contact with his agents. The Marlins are thought to have a deal on the table already for Headley and some speculate San Francisco as another potential landing spot. It seems like his market is pretty developed at this point, meaning he'll likely make a decision sooner rather than later. He's thought to be looking for a four-year deal.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Headley would certainly be a nice fit as he can play both corners and allow aging, broken down stars like A-Rod and Mark Teixeira to spend more time as the DH. He'll probably test the free agent waters at first, but when the team with the deepest pockets says they want you, chances are, you're going to cash a big enough check to get you to stay.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Yankees will have their old third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, returning after a year long suspension. Manager Joe Girardi has already explained that A-Rod isn't guaranteed the spot, especially after Headley was a good acquisition for the Yankees. In 2014, Headley hit .243 with 13 home runs, 49 RBIs, and seven stolen bases.Analyst: Colby Conway
