Chase Headley said Tuesday that his injured back is feeling "pretty good."

Headley missed Sunday's series finale against the Red Sox and is out for Tuesday's opener versus the Rays, but an MRI taken Monday showed no major damage and he should return to action at some point this week. "I feel pretty good," the veteran third baseman told reporters Tuesday afternoon. "I'm encouraged with how I felt. [Monday] toward the end of the day, I felt a little bit better, and this morning, I woke up and felt pretty good."

Headley missed Sunday's game with tightness in his back and apparently needs another day of rest. Ronald Torreyes will make another start at third base and bat seventh against Drew Smyly.
Sep 20 - 3:24 PM

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Sunday due to tightness in his back.

The issue is believed to be minor and Headley is considered day-to-day. Ronald Torreyes is starting in his place at the hot corner and batting second for the Yankees against Drew Pomeranz and the Red Sox.
Sep 18 - 5:39 PM

Chase Headley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Headley socked a solo homer off Matt Andriese in the fifth inning. The tater was his 14th of the season and bumped his RBI total to 49. Through 417 at-bats, the veteran third baseman is slashing .257/.331/.398. He doesn't make for a viable fantasy option, but offers the Yankees a level of quiet -- if unspectacular -- consistency.
Sep 11 - 4:39 PM

Chase Headley launched a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Headley capped off a four-run eighth inning with a homer that just snuck over the right-field wall. The third baseman has seen his playing time dip a bit recently but does now have three longballs over his last 12 games. Brian McCann and Tyler Austin also went deep for the Bombers on Tuesday.
Sep 6 - 11:31 PM

Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI singles in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

The Yankees weren't exactly bopping around the ball around the park, but they did just enough to avoid the three-game sweep. Headley was instrumental to that cause in his quiet way, hitting an RBI single as part of a three-run first inning and driving in a run with an infield single in the third. For the season, the veteran third baseman is slashing .261/.336/.395 with 12 homers and 46 RBI over 395 at-bats. He is serviceable as a bottom-of-the-lineup bat, but holds no fantasy value.
Sep 4 - 5:47 PM

Chase Headley is in Monday's lineup against the Royals.

Ronald Torreyes started all three games at third base over the weekend, but Headley is back in there Monday and will bat seventh against Dillon Gee. Headley will likely continue to lose playing time if Torreyes continues to play well.
Aug 29 - 5:25 PM

Chase Headley finished 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Orioles on Friday.

After a miserable April, Headley picked things up through the end of July, but he was hitting just .220/.313/.356 this month coming into Friday’s action. It’s worth noting that he was dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles during that time, but he now has two homers in his last four games. Perhaps he’s turning the corner.
Aug 26 - 10:18 PM

Chase Headley has been dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles for over a week.

It was a factor in him sitting out Friday and Saturday, although Headley was available off the bench Saturday. Headley could return to the lineup Sunday.
Aug 21 - 10:01 AM

Chase Headley is absent from the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the veteran third baseman. Ronald Torreyes will draw the start at the hot corner and bat ninth against Corey Kluber and the Indians on Saturday.
Aug 6 - 10:13 AM

Chase Headley went 2-for-2 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.

Headley hit a solo dinger in the eighth inning, giving him 10 on the season. Half of those have come this month, with Headley hitting .283 with 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in July. The third baseman is hitting .259/.330/.395 in 94 games overall.
Jul 30 - 10:19 PM

Jul 21 - 11:32 AM
