Chase Headley’s struggles continued in Friday’s loss to the Athletics, as he went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.
Headley was one of the hottest hitters in the game through the first two weeks of the season, but he has gone dramatically in the other direction ever since. He’s batting just .158 with one home run over his last 29 games. His situation is worth watching with top prospect Gleyber Torres inching closer to the majors. May 26 - 10:58 PM

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

It's a day off for Headley, who is in a 10-for-63 (.159) slump. Ronald Torreyes is at third base.
May 19 - 3:13 PM

Chase Headley had one single in five at-bats in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

He did manage to notch his fifth stolen base of the season, but Headley has been in a tailspin after a great start. The third baseman is batting only .178 in May after batting .301 in April.
May 16 - 11:39 PM

Chase Headley was ejected from Friday's game against the Astros for arguing with the home plate umpire.

Headley was hit on the left hand while attempting to bunt and apparently was trying to argue that he didn't offer at the pitch, but Adrian Johnson wasn't hearing it. Look for him to return to action on Saturday.
May 12 - 9:27 PM

Chase Headley is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Reds.

Headley has struggled recently and had a rough day on Monday, so he could probably use the breather. Ronald Torreyes will fill in at third base and bat eighth.
May 9 - 3:03 PM

Chase Headley went 0-for-3 with an RBI and committed his seventh error Monday against the Reds.

Headley was probably the AL's best player for the first two weeks, but he's hitting .194 with one homer in his last 72 at-bats. The error binge is an oddity. He did have a 23-error season for the Yankees in 2015, but he usually finishes right around 10 per year. He committed 10 errors in 140 games last season and eight in 127 games at third in 2014.
May 8 - 11:26 PM

Chase Headley is not in Monday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

A routine day off for the veteran third baseman. Ronald Torreyes will cover the hot corner and bat ninth against right-hander Marco Estrada.
May 1 - 3:45 PM

Chase Headley is getting the night off Tuesday.

Ronald Torreyes is starting at third base and batting eighth versus White Sox right-hander Dylan Covey. It's just a routine day of rest for Headley.
Apr 18 - 3:49 PM

Chase Headley had another terrific night at the plate in Sunday's victory over the Cardinals, reaching base safely in all four of his plate appearances.

Headley singled twice, walked twice and scored a pair of runs in the contest. The veteran third-baseman was an afterthought in most fantasy drafts this spring but has come out of the gate slashing a mighty impressive .410/.531/.615 with two homers, three RBI and three stolen bases. He's worthy of an add in deeper mixed leagues where he may still be available.
Apr 16 - 11:27 PM

Chase Headley finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored Wednesday in the Yankees' win over the Rays.

Headley singled and scored in the bottom of the fifth and did the same in the bottom of the sixth as the Yankees rallied to win 8-4. The veteran third baseman is off to a great start this season, now with a .393/.485/.643 batting line and nine runs scored through eight games.
Apr 12 - 4:53 PM

Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored Monday as the Yankees won their home opener over the Rays.

The short porch in right field helped, but his homer was a laser shot. Headley got off to an absolutely brutal start last season, but he’s on fire out of the gate this year. The 32-year-old is batting .375 (9-for-24) with two homers, three RBI, five walks, and seven runs scored through seven games.
Apr 10 - 3:58 PM

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees "continue to gauge interest" in Chase Headley and Brett Gardner.

Sherman says either trade would be "a way to cut a significant salary" following the five-year, $86 million Aroldis Chapman agreement. Headley is owed $26 million over the next two years and batted just .253/.311/.385 with 14 home runs and 51 RBI in 140 games this past season for New York, so he may be difficult to move. The veteran third baseman also turns 33 years old next May. Gardner is due $12.5 million in 2017 and $11.5 million in 2018 with a $12.5 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for 2019. He should be a slightly more attractive trade chip, though there's been talk of the Yankees shopping him for some time and the market has been quiet thus far. The ask is probably a major-league ready starting pitcher.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Thursday that he'll hang on to Chase Headley.

Cashman shopped Headley around but evidently didn't like the offers presented to him. "I've turned down what was presented to me," Cashman said. "I don't think there's going to be any other opportunities that way at the time being. I'm still getting hits on (Brett Gardner) but the Headley stuff, I've decided to pass on and keep Chase." Headley batted .251/.329/.383 with 14 home runs in 2016 and is owed $34 million over the next two seasons.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees are open to moving Chase Headley.

Rosenthal writes that Brian McCann and Brett Gardner are considered the most valuable Yankees via trade, but they are also listening on Headley. The 32-year-old is owed $34 million over the next two seasons, with a $15 million option for 2019. He batted .251/.329/.383 with 14 home runs and 51 RBI over 140 games this past season, but he was much better after a rough April.

Chase Headley (back) has returned to the Yankees' starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.

Headley missed three straight games with tightness in his back, but an MRI taken this week showed no major structural damage and he should be good to go the rest of the way. Headley is starting at third base and batting sixth on Thursday night against Rays left-hander Blake Snell.
