Yankees' Slade Heathcott (quad) scratched Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) Yankees center fielder Slade Heathcott has been scratched from Thursday's lineup against the A's due to a sore right quad, YES reports. Heathcott said he has been dealing with the injury off and on since the offseason.
"It’s been very easily manageable," Heathcott said, per The Journal News. "Came in today just a little more tender, and we just decided that giving it a day or two here would be better than four weeks."
Heathcott has started four of the last six games in center field, but he'll be replaced by Chris Young due to the injury. Heathcott is 6 for 17 with one home run and three RBI in six games.
The Yankees are road favorites (-110) in Oakland on Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.
Yankees CF Slade Heathcott will start over Chris Young

|(5/27/15) Yankees center fielder Slade Heathcott will get the start over Chris Young on Wednesday against the Royals.
Both Heathcott and Young are battling for playing time with star center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury.
Young struck out three times in his team's 5-1 win over the Royals on Tuesday, while Heathcott is hitting .357 in just 14 at-bats this season.
OF Slade Heathcott off to promising start for Yankees
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) The short-term future of Yankees newcomer Slade Heathcott is unknown. One can only speculate on his status upon the eventual return of center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list.
But the present looks pretty promising. Heathcott has been impressive in three games, slamming a double for his first big-league hit and adding a two-run homer in a Monday rout of the Royals. He is 5-for-12 with three runs and three RBI.
So much for wilting under the pressure of playing in the majors, let alone that of wearing the legendary pinstripes.
"When I step across those lines, I just want it to be the same game I've played my entire career life," he told the Journal News. "Obviously on a higher scale, and at a higher level - a lot more fans, a lot more energy - but I want to keep this the same game I've been playing. Don't stress. Don't try to do too much. That's something I have to remind myself every AB."
Joe Girardi has not indicated where Heathcott will fit in when Ellsbury comes back. But he's certainly happy with his performance.
"You want to see your young players come up and have success and feel like they're contributing," he said. "Not put a ton of pressure on themselves and not looking over their shoulder and wondering if they're going to play the next day."
