Yankees OF Slade Heathcott plays in rehab games


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Outfielder Slade Heathcott, who played in six games with the Yankees before going on the 60-day disabled list with a quad strain in late May, returned to action over the weekend, playing in a pair of rehab contests for Class A Charleston, per NJ.com. 

Heathcott went 0-for-6 in the games but seemingly showed no ill effects from the injury. His path to the majors, however, might be blocked by the solid play of Jacoby Ellsbury, whom Heathcott was called up to replace when Ellsbury was down with an injury. 

Heatcott was 6-for-18 during his time with the Yankees.

To replace him on the roster, the Yankees called up outfielder Ramon Flores , who was hitting .294 with four home runs and 15 RBI at Triple-A Scranton. 


Yankees' Slade Heathcott (quad) scratched Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) 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


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

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
(5/26/2015) 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."


Yankees' Slade Heathcott knocks first career home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Yankees center fielder Slade Heathcott went 2 for 5 with his first career homer in his team's 14-1 win over the Royals on Monday.

After the Yankees racked up 11 runs on four homers before the fourth out of the game could be recorded, the team was able to cruise to a win. Heathcott smacked his two-run homer in the seventh inning to increase his team's lead to 13 runs.

"Is this real?" Heathcott said to NJ.com. "I come back in the dugout, and I see a lot of the veteran guys, [Brian] McCann, CC [Sabathia], guys like that, congratulating me. It's awesome."

He's 5 for 12 in his first three starts in the majors.

"I've known Slade for a while, since he got drafted, and he's been through his share of injuries," left fielder Brett Gardner said. "I'm very, very happy for him."


Yankees OF Slade Heathcott makes first career start Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Yankees rookie outfielder Slade Heathcott earned his first career start Friday against the Rangers. He made his MLB debut as a defensive replacement in Wednesday's game at Washington.

Heathcott is a former top-100 prospect. He was batting .285 with one home run and 17 RBI in 37 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to his promotion. He had a .270/.345/.398/.743 slash line over seven seasons in the minors.


Yankees recall OF Slade Heathcott from Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) The Yankees have called up outfielder Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, the team announced. Heathcott will take the roster spot from Jacoby Ellsbury, who went on the disabled list with a knee injury.

"I’ll use (Heathcott) for late innings for defense, and I could use him as a pinch runner," mnager Joe Girardi said, per the Journal News. "But he’s going to get some starts. I’m going to put him in the lineup and see how he does."

Heathcott was originally drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 2009 draft. He's been toiling around in the minor leagues since then, never getting a taste of the Major Leagues. He's never really hit all that well in the Yankees' system, as he has a career .270 minor league batting average with 21 home runs.

This year he is batting .285 with four doubles, a triple and a home run in 151 at-bats at Triple-A. He's played mostly center field during his career and will likely be a depth piece for manager Joe Girardi in Ellbury's absence. 


Jacoby Ellsbury headed to DL; Yanks to call up OF Slade Heathcott


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain, according to MLB.com.

Ellsbury left Tuesday's loss to the Nationals in the fourth inning with the knee issue.

To fill the roster spot, the Yankees will call up outfielder Slade Heathcott from Triple-A.

In 36 games in Triple-A this season, Heathcott was hitting .280 with one homer and 17 RBI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

In addition to the options, the Yankees reassigned catchers Francisco Arcia and Kyle Higashioka, infielders Cole Figueroa and Jonathan Galvez, outfielder Slade Heathcott and pitchers Kyle Davies, Jacob Lindgren and Nick Rumbelow to minor-league camp.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Slade Heathcott battling patellar tendinitis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2013) The Journal News reported Friday that Yankees prospect Slade Heathcott is battling a patellar tendinitis injury. Heathcott, who is the No. 63 prospect, according to Baseball America, is batting .200 (2 for 10) with three walks and an RBI this spring. At this point, he is unsure when he'll be able to return to the field.

Heathcott not an option yet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2013) Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters Monday the team is “not looking for a long-term solution” while Curtis Granderson misses the start of the season due to a fractured forearm. Girardi seemed to be leaning toward non-roster invitees Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera to potentially platoon in left field while Granderson recovers. Girardi added Melky Mesa is the best defensive option to replace Granderson and Zolio Almonte could also figure into the team's plans. Mesa and Almonte are already on the 40-man roster. Girardi made it clear, however, prospects Slade Heathcott and Tyler Austin will not be in the mix.

Heathcott tied to Williams


(2/5/2013) Yankees senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman said on Tuesday that will be interesting to see if outfield prospects Slade Heathcott and Mason Williams can take the next step this season. Heathcott enjoyed his best season of pro ball in 2012, batting .302 with five home runs, 29 RBI and 19 stolen bases at Class A, but had his campaign cut short due to a shoulder injury. "At some point in the not too distant future, they will be [together]," Newman said. "We have two legitimate center fielders in Williams and Heathcott. That will be an interesting developmental issue -- how we allocate the center-field time -- but we're not there yet. They can both fly. They both hit left-handed. They both throw well. Slade's got more power, but Mason has hit for a better average to this point."
