Free-agent OF Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox) and the New York Yankees agreed to a seven-year contract Tuesday, Dec. 3, pending a physical. The deal is believed to be larger than the seven-year, $142 million deal of Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford.
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury will be a great addition to the top of the lineup for New York. He steals tons of bases and hits for tremendous average, and that short porch in right should preserve his power. However, his shaky performance versus left-handed pitching and propensity for injury should worry fantasy owners. He's going to cost you a pretty penny, but if he stays healthy, he'll match your investment.
