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.

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.

Chase Headley (legs) had a go-ahead, pinch-hit, two-RBI single in the 10th inning of Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Headley, who didn't start because of some soreness in his legs, remained in the game to get two more plate appearances in the 16-inning affair. He should start on Wednesday.

Chase Headley is out of the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday because his "legs are banged up."

That's what the veteran third baseman told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. Headley is available off the bench and expects to return to the lineup Wednesday. Brendan Ryan is starting at the hot corner and will bat ninth against Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco.

Chase Headley went 2-for-4 with a three-run double and two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's win over the Orioles.

Headley jumped the Yankees out to a fast start against Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez when he hit a bases-clearing double with two outs in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish off his batting line. He's currently slashing .259/.313/.379, almost exactly in line with what he's done throughout his career. Headley's also hit eight home runs and knocked in 35 this season.

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.
Sun, Jul 12, 2015 08:29:00 AM

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.
Fri, Jul 10, 2015 04:11:00 PM

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.
