FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YANKEES TO SIGN MATT HOLLIDAY

By Michael Wong

National Harbor, Md.--The New York Yankees have come to terms on a free agent contract with outfielder Matt Holliday.  Holliday comes off a 2016 season when he hit .244 with 20 home runs for the St. Louis Cardinals who non-tendered him weeks ago.

Analysis:  Interesting move by the Yankees who get Holliday on a buy low as he comes off injury and a rough year at the dish outside of power.  Terms are not known yet but we would imagine it is a one-year deal.  Holliday will fill the Carlos Beltran 2016 role on the team as a semi-outfielder and part-time DH.  They still are pursuing Edwin Encarnacion as well.
