Chase Headley hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Headley took O's reliever Mychal Givens deep for the two-run blast in the eighth inning. The third baseman now has four home runs in 14 July games after hitting five through the first three months of the season. Headley is hitting .252/.327/.390 with 30 RBI and 36 runs scored.
Jul 19 - 10:36 PM

Chase Headley went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Headley's two-run blast off Carlos Rodon in the third inning was his second in as many games. The third baseman has struggled to get much traction offensively in his time in New York, hitting .254/.331/.379 in 75 games this year. He's got seven home runs, 25 RBI and 28 runs scored in those 75 games played.

Chase Headley went 2-for-2 with two walks versus the Twins on Friday.

Headley had a double and a single. The 32-year-old was in a brutal funk at the start of the season, but he’s batting .307 since the start of May. Unfortunately, he hasn’t done much to provide fantasy value even when he’s been swinging the bat well. He has three homers and 12 RBI in 41 games during that time.

Chase Headley went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

The Yankees failed to score through seven innings, but Headley finally got them on the board with his ribbie single in the eighth. It made the score 4-1. They wouldn't score again. Headley was hitting just .150/.268/.150 over 60 April at-bats, but has slowly brought that triple-slash up to .240/.316/.333. The veteran third baseman still doesn't make for much of a fantasy option outside of very deep AL-only formats.

Chase Headley struck out all four times he was up Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

June started on the wrong foot for Headley, who followed up a horrible April (.150//268/.150 in 60 AB) with a fine May (.298/.355/.440). Nearly one-third of the way through the season, he has 11 RBI and 15 runs scored.
Jun 1 - 10:31 PM

Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Blue Jays.

Headley had been swinging a hot stick prior to a pair of oh-fers in his last two games, but the 32-year-old got on base three times against Estrada and the Blue Jays. His solo homer was the first of back-to-back jacks in the seventh, the second of which came from Didi Gregorius, but the game was out of reach by that point. Even with the solid month of May, too, Headley is only hitting .219/.301/.305 in 146 plate appearances with three home runs and three stolen bases. It's hard to get excited.
May 25 - 10:32 PM

Chase Headley went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit RBI double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Headley could not buy an extra-base hit before this week, but his bat has come to life in impressive fashion of late. On Sunday, his deep RBI double in the seventh inning snapped a 5-5 tie. Brian McCann would homer an inning later to sew up the 7-5 final. Headley is still slashing just .200/.289/.270 (never a good sign when your slugging is lower than your on-base percentage) over 100 at-bats, but has a double, two homers and four RBI across his last four games. He has driven in a run in five of his last six contests.
May 15 - 5:28 PM

Chase Headley socked a solo homer off Chris Sale on Friday against the White Sox.

His second-inning blast was the only offense the Yankees could muster against Sale. After going without a home run over his first 28 games this season, Headley has now gone deep in back-to-back games.
May 13 - 10:59 PM

Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Royals.

The homer was, surprisingly, his first of the season. It's been that kind of year for the third baseman, who is hitting just .194/.283/.226 on the year. His 2012 season was clearly an aberration, but it's hard to fathom he's this useless offensively.
May 12 - 10:33 PM

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting some rest. The Yankees are using Ronald Torreyes at third base.
Apr 17 - 10:13 AM

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday against the Tigers.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for Headley. Ronald Torreyes will start in his place at the hot corner and will bat ninth against Mike Pelfrey and the Tigers.
Apr 9 - 10:59 AM

Chase Headley went 0-for-3 Thursday in the loss to the Cardinals.

It's been an ugly spring for the middle of the Yankees' orde, with Headley and Mark Teixeira both sporting sub-.600 OPSs and Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran under .700. Only Brian McCann is hitting (.351 to be exact), and he still doesn't have a homer in 37 at-bats. Combined, the five players have three homers in 212 at-bats this spring. A-Rod went deep on his very first swing of the month and hasn't had an extra-base hit since.
Mar 31 - 4:26 PM

Chase Headley is out of the Yankees' lineup on Thursday due to a sore back.

Jacoby Ellsbury is also sitting out of the series finale with Boston due to some mild soreness. They should both be completely fine by the American League Wild Card Game, but there may be some more days off this weekend.
