Brett Lawrie is going to be out a few more weeks, which is going to help to suppress his spot on these rankings.  Of course his .244 average courtesy of a 13.8% line drive rate doesn't help much either. - Eric Stashin, Roto Professor

Headley slugs first homer since joining NYY - Chase Headley | NYY


The change of scenery should be huge for Headley, but it is worth mentioning that a herniated disc in his back required an epidural injection at the end of June. If back pain reoccurs, it would derail any gains made from joining his new team. He has played much better since receiving the epidural, though, and I'd gamble on him in all but shallow mixed league formats. - Josh Shepardson, The Fantasy Fix

On the whole, this move is easily a positive for Headley owners and potential Headley owners. His batted ball distribution suggests a better BABIP the rest of the way, he moves to an even better home park for home runs and is being surrounded by a better lineup. While there's no telling how his back issue affects him, he's worth rolling the dice on if you're in need of third base help. - MIke Podhorzer, Fangraphs
