According to Mark Feinsand of, the Yankees remain open to acquiring a first baseman.
The Yankees acquired Todd Frazier in a blockbuster trade with the White Sox Tuesday night but they may not be done yet. With Frazier handling the hot corner, Chase Headley will move into a first-base platoon with rookie Garrett Cooper. The Yankees are satisfied with that alignment but that won't stop them from pursing Yonder Alonso and maybe even Lucas Duda. The Yankees are trying to close the gap on the Red Sox, who hold a four-game lead over them in the AL East. Jul 20 - 9:28 PM

Chase Headley jolted two hits Sunday in the Yankees' loss to the Brewers.

Headley’s afternoon could have been so much sweeter. It looked like Headley had clubbed a three-run homer to give the Yankees a 6-5 advantage in the sixth inning but the play was overturned and ruled a foul ball upon review. Headley had a productive day nonetheless, slashing a second-inning single to center and plating Jacoby Ellsbury from second on a single in the fourth. He’ll go to the break with an uninspiring .251/.341/.366 triple slash.

Chase Headley is not in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

He's just getting a maintenance day. Ronald Torreyes will fill in at third base and bat ninth against White Sox starter James Shields. This represents somewhat of a missed opportunity as Headley has gone 3-for-9 with a home run in his career against Shields.

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over the White Sox.

The Chase Headley Renaissance continues unabated. He hit an RBI single in the fourth inning and his booming double in the sixth inning nearly left the ballpark. The veteran third baseman has six hits in his last eight at-bats. He has raised his average from .237 to .262 in what has been a strong June.

Headley had an eventful afternoon, providing a double and two singles as the Bombers’ nearly came all the way back from a 7-0 deficit. He was also caught stealing for the second time this year.

Chase Headley was unavailable for Thursday's game against the Angels due to back spasms.

Manager Joe Girardi isn't sure if he'll be able to play Friday against Texas. Ronald Torreyes handled the hot corner in Headley's absence on Thursday night. It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Yankees, who have lost eight of nine while falling into a first-place tie with the Red Sox in the AL East. Losing Headley wouldn't help matters.
Jun 22 - 11:10 PM

Chase Headley finished 3-for-4 with a double, a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's game at the Angels.

The homer was his first since April 19, and it was the first time since October 1, 2016 that he had two or more extra-base hits in a single game. Despite the rare big game, he still has posted rather mediocre numbers overall and he has been especially brutal against left-handed pitching.

Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.

It's the first time since April that Headley has reached base three times in a game. He's struggled against everyone lately, but he's been particularly bad against lefties. He needs to turn it on or else the Yankees could consider replacing him at third base.
Jun 7 - 10:01 PM

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
