Ladies and Gentlemen, the Yankees are banking on Chase Headley.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Chase Headley and the New York Yankees have decided on a four-year deal, $52 Million deal which would take him to the 2018 season.
“He was a tremendous acquisition in the second half,” Cashman said last night while on NBC last night. “A great leader. A tremendous defender. A switch-hitter with great discipline. He kind of checks off every box that we’d like a prototypical Yankee to look like.”
Headley was the only mid-season acquisition the Yankees retained so far; Brandon McCarthy recently signed a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers
