2010 BCB Community Projections: Xavier Nady

New, comments

Xavier Nady wasn't with the Yankees very long -- the photo here was taken during spring training 2009. He got hurt and played only seven games in a New York uniform during the regular season last year and had his second Tommy John surgery.

He may not be 100% at the beginning of the season, though supposedly the recovery from the surgery affects only his throwing, not his hitting. If he has to start the year on the DL, Chad Tracy or Kevin Millar may take his place on the roster temporarily.

He is only one year removed from a 25 HR, 97 RBI, .305/.357/.510 season combined between the Pirates and Yankees in 2008, by far the best year of his career. Nady is 31 and at the very least, should be a good platoon partner for Kosuke Fukudome in right field, and perhaps back up Alfonso Soriano in left.

How will he do this year? Post your projection in the form after the jump.
