In his latest installment of the 'Full Count,' FOXSports.com's senior writer Ken Rosenthal talks about the impending free agency of Angels third baseman Chone Figgins. Figgins is having another great year, and is in for a nice contract this offseason. He is hitting an impressive .366 with runners in scoring position, and is hitting 16 points above his career average.

Rosenthal speculates that the Yankees could pursue Figgins as an option for left field. He would be a cheap addition over someone like Matt Holliday or Jason Bay, and would give the Yankees more stability at the top of their order.
They'll have some competition though.
Both the White Sox and Cubs have interest in FIggins, and have for some time. His ability at the plate and in the field makes his very valuable to any team. Figgins could command anywhere between 6-8 million dollars annually.
