Yankees LF Brett Gardner returns to action vs. Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner returned to the starting lineup and will bat second during Saturday's contest against Tampa Bay.

Gardner has been sidelined since Monday with a bruised right wrist. He is hitting .261 (6 for 23) with three walks, a double, a home run, five runs scored and three RBI in six games. Gardner's return to the lineup bumped Chase Headley to the No. 7 hole in the order.


A-Rod gets his first start at 3B Monday as Headley gets a day off


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Alex Rodriguez returned to a familar spot on the diamond Monday against the Orioles. After starting at first base and DH through the first six games, Rodriguez drew his first start at third base this season as Chase Headley got the night off for the Yankees.

It is Rodriguez's first start at third base since Sept. 10, 2013, and his 1,190th career start at the hot corner. As it has been well covered, Rodriguez sat out in 2014 due to a season-long suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Both Rodriguez and Headley are off to a promising starts offensively this season. Rodriguez is batting .300 (6 for 20) with one home run, two doubles and six RBI in six games. Headley is batting just .222 (6 for 27), but he has two home runs and five RBI in six games.


Yankees third baseman Chase Headley cracks second home run


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley went 3 for 5 at the plate in Sunday's 14-4 win over the Red Sox.

Headley was hot at the plate from the first at-bat, ripping a 2-2 pitch from Clay Buchholz to right field for a two-run home run, driving in Alex Rodriguez. Then in the sixth, Headley singled to center, scoring Mark Teixeria.

"It was great. We knew we were capable of swinging a lot better than we had been," Headley said to the New York Post. "To come out and get on the board early, play with some emotion, it was fun."

Headley is now hitting .222 with five RBI in 27 at-bats this season.


A-Rod to likely hit 7th as DH in Yankees' Opening Day lineup


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/4/2015) Manager Joe Girardi hinted strongly on Saturday what the Yankees' Opening Day lineup will be and it will included Alex Rodriguez batting seventh as the designated hitter, reports ESPN New York. 

Girardi said Saturday's final exhibition game lineup "could be" the team's Opening Day lineup, which leads many to believe that will be the case. 

The Yankees lineup on Saturday:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

2. Brett Gardner, LF

3. Carlos Beltran, RF

4. Mark Teixeira, 1B

5. Brian McCann, C

6. Chase Headley, 3B

7. Alex Rodriguez, DH

8. Stephen Drew, 2B

9. Didi Gregorius, SS


Yankees 3B Chase Headley wants more action in the field


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley has played the fourth most innings on the field for the team with 78, but he has only had 13 chances at fielding balls, reports the New York Times. He is hoping that he gets more opportunities going forward.

“It’s crazy,” Headley said. “I’m begging for ground balls.”

Headley came over from the Padres last spring having spent his entire career there. He seemed to suffer the same circumstances there with limited chances to field balls. He spoke to some of his current teammates and his infield coach.

“I’ve talked with Joe Espada,” Headley said of the Yankees’ new infield coach. “And Didi and Stephen — I just want a routine, easy ground ball.”

Headley, who won a National League Gold Glove in 2012, has been using his practice time to stay sharp.

“Sometimes you’ll do a drill where the coach will flip the ball so you’re reading the swing and it’s a little bit more gamelike,” Headley said. “But there’s really no substitute for getting ground balls, and unfortunately that’s out of your control in spring training, so you do the best you can with it. The good thing is I’ve done it for a long time, so I’ll be fine.”


Chase Headley goes three-for-three for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley had a big day against the Orioles on Tuesday. Batting third in the order, Headley went three-for-three, accounting for half of the Yankees' hits in the game. 

Headley doubled in the first inning and singled twice before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. 


Headley on working alongside A-Rod: 'It's business as usual'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Tuesday was the first time Yankees third baseman Chase Headley got to work alongside embattled slugger Alex Rodriguez. 

“As a player, you experience different things in your career,” Headley said, per The Journal News. “And I’ve been around long enough that there’s been different sets of circumstances that I’ve dealt with, and this just another one. As far as a teammate, I expect him to be great. I’ve heard great things from other guys, and every interaction that I’ve had with him has been positive. Hopefully here in a few days everything will calm down and we’ll start talking about baseball, but you know, obviously you expect to answer the questions about him. But from my point of view, it’s business as usual.”

As far as their roles on the team, Headley is still expected to be the starting third baseman and Rodriguez will get most of his playing time at DH.

“For me to be here, I feel like (playing third base) is what made sense,” Headley said. “We established that early on (in offseason contact negotiations). There’s a lot of things that can happen over the course of a season. Obviously the more bodies that you have that can fill positions (is) great, but if I thought I was coming here to be a first baseman or a left fielder or whatever, I wouldn’t have came back. That wouldn’t have made sense for me or the Yankees.”


Headley: A-Rod reached out in offseason, both care about winning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley said embattled slugger Alex Rodriguez reached out to him in mid-December after Headley signed a four-year, $52 million contract.

Rodriguez, who sat out in 2014 due to a season-long suspension, is hoping to win back the starting job at third base, but he is expected to see most of his at-bats at DH.

"We didn't talk about that," Headley said Monday about Rodriguez wanting to start at third, per the Associated Press. "I think we both care about winning. That's the most important thing and that's what we talked about. That (other) stuff will sort itself out. I'm not going to concern myself with that. I'm going to come out and try to do the best I can to do my job, and however that shakes out it will shake out."


Yankees' Steinbrenner: 'We're not going to be afraid to spend money'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner indicated Wednesday more offseason moves for New York could be coming, despite general manager Brian Cashman being active this offseason, according to MLB.com. The Yankees have already re-signed third baseman Chase Headley and infielder Stephen Drew, signed reliever Andrew Miller and traded for shortstop Didi Gregorius.

"It's not over until it's over. We still have a full month before spring training," Steinbrenner said. "We're always going to continue to improve. I'm not putting a cap on it. We've certainly filled some holes that we had. We'll keep going for the next few weeks."

Steinbrenner said he wants to get New York back to the postseason while trying to keep the the payroll in the same range, but left the door open to perhaps target one of the top free-agent players still available. Starting pitchers Max Scherzer and James Shields are two of the top names still on the free-agent market.

"[But] having said that, we're still the New York Yankees, all you guys know that," Steinbrenner said. "We know what the fans expect. We know what the town expects. We're not going to be afraid to spend money."

Report: Chase Headley could come to decision as soon as Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Third baseman Chase Headley could come to a decision about his free agency as soon as Monday, according to WFAN. The Yankees and Giants are among the teams pursuing the 30-year-old infielder.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated during an interview Monday with NBC New York the team's desire to re-sign Headley, and apparently Headley's desire to stay in New York.

"I do know this -- Chase wants to be a Yankee," Cashman said, per NJ.com. "He was a tremendous acquisition in the second half. A great leader. A tremendous defender. A switch-hitter with great discipline. He kind of checks off every box that we’d like a prototypical Yankee to look like.

"If we can find common ground, I’d like to have him man third base as we move forward."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Report: Sandoval signing could impact Headley's free-agent plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) It's not a mystery that the Yankees are looking to re-sign third baseman Chase Headley. However, the competition to sign him could heat up, if he isn't re-signed by the time Pablo Sandoval agrees to a contract, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

A-Rod won't be starting 3B, if Yankees signs Headley or another FA


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) It appears the Yankees concern about Alex Rodriguez returning to an everyday role at third base in 2015 are very real. General manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday if the team signs Chase Headley or another third baseman, then that player "would be our starting third baseman," per the New York Daily News.

There have been reports the Yankees are very interested in bringing back Headley because they don't feel Rodriguez will be able to play third base on an everyday basis. The concerns appear to be over Rodriguez's age (39) and durability issues. He hasn't played more than 140 games since 2007. He missed the 2014 campaign due to a season-long suspension.


Report: Yanks want to re-sign Headley over concerns about A-Rod


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Yankees are making a strong push to re-sign free agent infielder Chase Headley because they don't feel Alex Rodriguez will be able to play third base on an everyday basis in 2015, a source told ESPN. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported in early November the Yankees begun talks to bring back Headley.

The source said the Yankees "are looking at Headley to start at third, play some DH and back up Mark Teixeira at first base."

The source added the concerns about Rodriguez, who missed the 2014 season due to a suspension, the recent revelations regarding Rodriguez's past ties to performance-enhancing drugs.

"He's going to be 40 years old and he's had a really tough time staying on the field the past couple of seasons," the source said. "He's had two hip operations and a knee operation, and a lot of baseball people in the Yankees' organization have concerns about how much he can give them at this age."


Yankees interested in bringing back Chase Headley


(11/3/2014) With Pablo Sandoval’s $100 million asking price appearing too steep, the Yankees have begun negotiations with third baseman Chase Headley, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Yankees acquired Headley via trade during the 2014 season, and he posted 13 home runs, 49 RBI and a .243 batting average.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
