Chase Headley (calf) singled in one of his four plate appearances in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Headley hadn't played since Tuesday due to a minor right calf injury. He could probably use the All-Star break to get back to 100 percent.

Chase Headley (calf) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox, but indicated that he felt good enough to play.

Very good sign for Headley, who underwent an MRI on his right calf on Wednesday. Said MRI revealed inflammation, but no serious damage. It sounds like he could play on Saturday or Sunday. Nelson Figueroa will start at third for the opener of the Yankees' Fenway adventure on Friday.

Chase Headley (calf) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Thursday versus the A's.

Cole Figueroa has been called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will start at third base and bat ninth. Headley had an MRI on his right calf Wednesday that showed only inflammation. He's considered day-to-day.

Chase Headley is dealing with inflammation in his right calf.

Headley had an MRI taken Wednesday that showed the inflammation. He told reporters he would be surprised if he was in Thursday's lineup. At this point, it may behoove the Yankees to rest the third baseman for a few days and get him back healthy after the All-Star break.

Jun 14 - 8:07 AM

Chase Headley was forced to leave Friday's game against the Orioles after getting hit by a batted ball in the groin.

That will certainly ruin his weekend. Not only was Headley drilled, but was credited with an error on the play as well, and it started a rally for the Orioles. He should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two.
Jun 12 - 9:15 PM

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Yankees torched the Royals 14-1 on Memorial Day.

Headley kicked off the rout with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, then Brian McCann and Brett Gardner both followed with three-run shots in what became an eight-run opening frame. Stephen Drew added another three-run homer in the bottom of the second, finally driving Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie from the game. Headley also had an infield single and an RBI double. He's batting .255/.309/.416 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 44 games this season.

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

It's simply a routine day off. Stephen Drew is handling third base Wednesday in Headley's place, with Jose Pirela covering second.
May 13 - 3:51 PM

Chase Headley wasn't in Tuesday's lineup due to a sore back.

The Yankees think maybe he's a little sore after diving on Toronto's artificial turf Monday. There's no concern, though, as Headley is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday.
May 6 - 9:55 AM

Chase Headley clobbered his second home run of the season and drove home three runs on Sunday, leading the Yankees in a 14-4 rout over the Red Sox.

Headley's two-run blast of Clay Buchholz put the Yankees on top 6-0 in the first inning and was followed by a solo shot off the bat of Stephen Drew. He later added an RBI single in the sixth, finishing the night 3-for-5. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .222/.276/.444 with a pair of long balls and five RBI.
Apr 12 - 11:40 PM

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three RBI to lead the Yankees to a 7-0 win over the Astros on Sunday.

Headley hit second today, which is something he's done frequently with Jacoby Ellsbury out. Before Ellsbury was hurt, the plan was to bat Headley sixth or seventh this season. We think he makes quite a bit more sense at the top of the order, in part because he can help break up the lefties, but he'll probably still bat lower if Ellsbury returns for the opener as planned.
Mar 29 - 4:52 PM

Chase Headley homered off Kevin Slowey to lead the Yankees past a Phillies split-squad 3-2 on Sunday.

Headley is hitting .364 in 22 at-bats this spring. We still think it would make sense for the Yankees to break up their lefties some by hitting Headley second in the lineup. However, manager Joe Girardi appears committed to Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner at the top. As a result, Headley could hit as low as seventh to begin the regular season.
