NEW YORK—New York Yankees third baseman Chase Headley basically is the same player as Scott Brosius. Brosius is beloved by Yankees fans because he was the third baseman for three of the club’s championship teams at the end of the last century. Meanwhile, Headley has played on Yankee teams that have appeared in one playoff game.
Yankees fans do not seem to hold the same admiration for Headley as they did for Brosius. But that is nothing some postseason magic couldn’t change for Headley.
It appears Headley is safe to possibly have that chance now that the Yankees’ top infield prospect, Gleyber Torres, is out for the rest of the year because he needs Tommy John surgery on his left elbow. It is just a minor bump in the 20-year-old Torres’ development—as minor as Tommy John surgery can be.
It’s kind of hard to have postseason magic when you stink, but who knows?
