The New York Yankees have placed 3B Kelly Johnson (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained groin and have recalled P Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The team also designated P Bruce Billings for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Chase Headley likely will receive most of the playing time while Johnson is out of the lineup and should have value in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

The New York Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres in exchange for INF Yangervis Solarte and SP Rafael De Paula. San Diego also will send $1 million to New York.
Fantasy Tip: This is a big move for Headley, who becomes a top crossover FAAB candidate for AL-only players. He's rebounded a bit of late, and moving to the Bronx, a hitter's haven, should bode well for the rest of his second half. Solarte can be added in NL-only games but doesn't hold much upside, especially at PETCO Park. De Paula is a prospect to watch in the coming years but not necessarily stashable outside of full-team dynasty formats.

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley's recent hot steak aligns with him reverting back to his natural grip on the bat. He overlaps the pinky and ring fingers of his top batting hand over the index and middle fingers of his lower hand. Headley suffered a broken bone in his right hand last spring training and had to abandon the grip but has recently returned to it.
Fantasy Tip: Headley's numbers haven't been the same since the 2013 spring training injury. If it is as simple as his batting grip, fantasy owners should be delighted. Headley has brought his batting average up 29 points in a week.
