Latest Update The Yankees are making a strong push to sign free-agent infielder Chase Headley Mon Nov, 10, 03:24 PM
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.
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
Alex Rodriguez missed all of 2014 due to a suspension, and the Yankees aren't committed to giving him his old job back. Chase Headley filled in quite nice for the Yankees, and gave them a nice boost. Headley hit .243 for the year with 13 home runs, 49 RBIs, and seven stolen bases. Each of their fantasy values hinges on the decision of who is the starter. Until then, just keep an eye out for any updates, and make sure you have an idea before your league's draft.Analyst: Colby Conway
Headley has had a respectable showing since being dealt to the Yankees, slashing .262/.373/.401 with six home runs and 16 RBI through 187 at-bats. He is going to hit free agency this winter and will likely be headed to a new city, but no matter where he lands he will be a low-end fantasy third baseman in standard leagues come 2015.
