Fantasy Impact: Chase Headley was acquired by the Yankees in July of 2014 and was an impact player from the beginning; he had a walkoff hit in his first game on the team and had a .768 OPS for the remainder of the season while playing elite defense. Although his defense makes him a top-10 3B, there are opportunities in his hitting that could make him fantasy relevant. He may not hit 31 home runs again like he did in 2012, but he can hit 20 or more home runs utilizing the short porch in right field. With few 3B with 20 home run potential, Headley may even be able to sneak into the top-10 3B range for fantasy purposes as well.

Maybe the best thing about Chase Headley re-signing with the Yankees is that you can legitimately make a case for any of three teams winning the AL East. Red Sox? Blue Jays? Yankees? Who do you have? This is good stuff, the best of the Hot Stove League. There's business to be done in Baltimortedlore, but that's OK, too.
