Fantasy Analysis | 1406052316
Move could be good for Chase Headley
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

It's been two seasons since Chase Headley has really been an impact player in Fantasy, but Tuesday's trade that sent him to the Yankees could help to thrust him back into relevance.

Wearing pinstripes won't heal the herniated disc that has been plauging Headley this season, but even with some health issues, he has hit for decent power away from PETCO Park with five home runs over 139 at-bats. Not surprisingly, Headley has been a better power hitter on the road over his career, hitting 52 of his 87 homers in away games, and he's been a much better hitter for average and on-base percentage on the road, too.

This season, Headley's best hitting on the road has come when he's batted as a righty, and playing home games at Yankee Stadium could improve his righty splits. While his new home park is best known for being friendly to left-handed hitters, it's also a good power park for righties, while PETCO Park is notoriously tough on right-handed power hitters.

The move won't restore Headley to his 2012 form, as the flyball distance data on BaseballHeatMaps.com show that he is still not hitting flies nearly as far as he did in his 31-homer campaign. However, as long as he is healthy enough to stay on the field, he should easily be a top 20 third baseman with an outside shot at cracking the top 15 over the remainder of the season.

In other words, Headley has become relevant again in standard mixed Roto leagues, but he doesn't need to be owned in Head-to-Head points leagues other than in deeper formats.

Yankees, Padres agree to Chase Headley trade
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Headley has struggled this season, hitting just .229/.296/.355 in 77 games, though he has been hot lately. Though he has just one home run in the month of July, he is hitting .323 with a .785 OPS in the month, his best so far.

The Padres will reportedly receive infielder Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula from the Yankees, while sending $1 million in cash to the Yankees. Solarte has slowed down from a hot start and is hitting just .254/.337/.381 this season, while DePaula has a 4.15 ERA in 89 innings for Class A Tampa this season.

Padres might choose to keep Chase Headley
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres vice president/assistant general manager A.J. Hinch said third baseman Chase Headley continues to draw interest as the July 31 trade deadline nears, according to MLB Network Radio. However, Hinch said the team could keep Headley and make him a qualifying offer after the season.

Chase Headley a player to monitor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

You may have seen that Padres third baseman Chase Headley collected four hits in Monday's game at Colorado and thought, "That's odd." It was. But what's even odder is it came just three games after another four-hit performance. He went the first three months without even a three-hit game.

So basically, in four July games, he's 12 for 26 (.462). Again, odd, but not entirely without explanation. Headley says he changed his grip a week ago, or about the time of this turnaround (if you could even call it that) began.

"I feel like it lets me be a little shorter to the ball, gives me a little more leverage," Headley said.

Now obviously, it's a small sample, and as Al Melchior pointed out on Tuesday's Fantasy Baseball Today, Headley is still contending with a back issue that may have a greater say in his performance than any sort of mechanical change. But the Headley we saw in the first three months, the one we presumed was ruined by the back issue, didn't seem capable of a four-hit game, much less two in one week.

I'm not rushing to pick him up or anything, but I think it's worth monitoring.

Chase Headley goes 4 for 4 in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Padres third baseman Chase Headley put some distance between himself and the Mendoza Line Friday, with a four-hit performance in a 2-0 win over the Giants.

Headley entered the game hitting just .202, but raised his average more than 10 points by going 4 for 4. Each of his hits went for a single, and he drove in one run in the 2-0 win.

Headley is still hitting just .216/.298/.330 in 227 at-bats overall.
