Yankees' Chase Headley slugs sixth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley went 3 for 4 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in his team's 14-1 win over the Royals on Monday.

Headley may have been able to improve on his line but was removed for a pinch-runner the final time he made it on base. He opened the offensive explosion with a two-run home run in the first inning after the leadoff hitter got aboard and added an RBI double in the fifth.

Headley has hit .255/.309/.416 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 161 at-bats.


Yankees' Carlos Beltran sits, Chase Headley bats second Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Rangers, while third baseman Chase Headley is batting second.

Beltran has been in the No. 2 spot for the last three games with leadoff man Jacoby Ellsbury out and typical No. 2 batter Brett Gardner bumped up one spot, but with Beltran out of the lineup on Sunday, Headley will see his first action in the spot since April 17. Beltran is said to be battling "flu-like symptoms."

"We're hoping anything he has doesn't go to anyone else," said Girardi to MLB.com. "But if you start getting these [illnesses], they can start going around the clubhouse."

Garrett Jones draws the start in right field in place of Beltran.

The Yankees are favorites (-145) at home on Sunday night, per VegasInsider.com.


Chase Headley gets two hits in Yankees' shutout loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Headline went 2 for 4, giving him 3 hits in 9 at bats over the last two games. He lifted his average to .236. Headley, however, is struggling in the field, leading the team with eight errors already this season.

"Honestly, there have been some bad plays, some tough luck," Headley said to NJ.com. "The consistency needs to shore-up...it's not catching the ball, it's some of the throws."

Yankees' Stephen Drew starts at third base on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Stephen Drew is in the starting lineup at third base and batting seventh for the Yankees on Wednesday against the Rays. This will be Drew's first appearance at third base in his career.

Indeed, Headley is out of the lineup on Wednesday while Drew mans third base. Drew has struggled offensively this year, owning a dismal .184/.281/.367 batting line.

Jose Pirela is starting at second base, while Didi Gregorius is at shortstop

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Yankees' Chase Headley finding his way in the batting order


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Yankees third baseman Chase Headley is finding the transition to New York to be easy so far, according to NJ.com.

Headley, heading into Saturday's game, is hitting .242 with two home runs and nine RBI in 66 at-bats. 

"It's fun to just be another guy in the lineup," Headley said before the game Saturday against the Mets. "I feel like guys aren't game planing against just me. There's other guys in the lineup they have to worry about."

Headley is glad that his so-so start to the season isn't effecting everyone else in the batting order.

"If you're going to do that, there are other guys who can get you," Headley said of opposing pitcher game-planning against one hitter in the Yankees' lineup. "There's consequences with that."

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.

"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.

2. Brett Gardner, LF

3. Carlos Beltran, RF

4. Mark Teixeira, 1B

5. Brian McCann, C

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."
