The Yankees suffered a terrible blow over the weekend when top prospect Gleyber Torres suffered a season-ending torn UCL in his non-throwing shoulder when he slid head-first into home on Saturday. Torres will undergo Tommy John surgery and hopes to be ready for spring training next year.
WIth Torres, who was expected to take over at third at some point in the near future, out of the picture for the rest of the season, New York might look to add a third basemen. Ken Davidoff of the NY Post explores several options for the Yankees at third base.
Chase Headley has been New York's starting third baseman this season, hitting .244/.329/.364 with four home runs and 29 RBI. Less than halfway through the season, Headley has already made 11 errors in the field, exceeding last season's 10 errors. With the 33-year old set to make $13 million this season and $13 million next season, the ideal scenario for the Yankees is for Headley's production to improve both at the plate and on the field.
