Headley Admittedly Not Sure if Yankees Will Re-Sign Him

Free Agent Third Baseman Chase Headley admitted that he isn't sure if the Yankees will re-sign him this offseason.

Headley, 30, hit .262 with 6 home runs and 17 RBIs in 58 games for New York this year. Going into this winter, Headley is expected to get a good amount of interest from around the league, but up until now no team has specifically stated their intentions to pursue him.

"I don’t know if (the Yankees) are going to be interested," Headley recently told The Journal News. "They do have a player under contract. We’ll kinda see how that shakes out."

Headley said that he wouldn't mind signing with the Yanks if they approached him, but would want to know about what their plans to use him for the future are.

"If they do show interest, then there would be mutual interest," he said. "But that would be something we’d want to talk about, and see what the role would look like, coming into (next season). Not something that I’d be scared of, but something I’d like to have clarity on, and I’m sure the organization would as well."

Headley, if he does stay with the Yankees, wouldn't be their only infield option by any means. As he mentioned earlier, they already have the returning Alex Rodriguez under contract, with utility man Martin Prado also being available to play the hot corner if needed.
