Headley is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He has three hits in his last six starts, which actually increased his batting average from .148 to .153, illustrating just how bad he has been to start the year. There are certain formats where Headley needs to be rostered in case he turns things around, as he would be set for regular at-bats in a favorable park, but in standard leagues he's made it pretty easy for owners to cut bait in the first month of the season. Ronnie Torreyes will start at third base and hit ninth Thursday.

Headley is not in the lineup Tuesday, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.

Headley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Headley is stuck in a 1-for-11 swoon over the last four games, which has dropped his season average to .154. The veteran still seems to have a firm grip on the starting job at third base, but he'll get Sunday off to take a mental break from the grind. Ronald Torreyes will bat ninth and take over duties at the hot corner for the day.

Headley will bat ninth against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Friday's start marks Headley's first in the nine-hole in 10 major league seasons. The 31-year-old Headley has started poorly, going 3-for-20 (all singles) with five strikeouts, and he was passed over for a start last week in favor of Ronald Torreyes.

Headley reached base three times Tuesday, going 2-for-3 with a walk in the win over the Blue Jays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The second hit started a seventh inning rally in which Headley ultimately came around to score the game-winning run. The third baseman has gotten off to a slow start at the plate though, as even after the multi-hit game, he's hitting just .200 and is still looking for his first extra-base hit.

Headley is out of the lineup Saturday but manager Joe Girardi announced that it's routine day off for the veteran third baseman.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Headley had started every game at third base to this point in the season, but he'll be replaced at the hot corner Saturday by Ronnie Torreyes. Given that Girardi said that this is just a regular rest day for Headley, he should be expected to draw back into the order for Sunday's series finale with the Tigers. Headley has struggled at the dish to start the year, going 1-for-12 with four strikeouts through four games.

Headley (illness) is in the lineup Tuesday, batting seventh as New York's third baseman.

Competitive Edge Analysis

An illness over the weekend put Headley's status in some doubt heading into Opening Day, but the veteran said Monday that he would have been able to take the field had the Yankees' matchup against the Astros not been postponed. He'll draw into the lineup against Dallas Keuchel on Tuesday, batting in the bottom third of the order.

Headley (illness) is feeling better and would have played Monday had the Yankees' season opener not been postponed, MLB.com's Brian Hoch reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Headley missed a couple exhibition games last week due to his illness, but it appears he will be good to go for the season opener. While that will not come Monday as originally scheduled due to rain, expect him to be in the lineup when the Yankees take the field Tuesday.

Headley (illness) is out of the lineup again Saturday, Anthony Rieber of Newsday reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Headley being scratched for the second day in a row due to illness this close to Opening Day, his status may be trending towards questionable heading into Monday's game against the Astros. Ronnie Torreyes, who started at third base Friday and Saturday, would be the likeliest option to take over at the hot corner if Headley is still sick and unable to play Monday.

Headley (illness) was scratched from the lineup Friday, Ryan Hatch of The Star-Ledger reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

There's very little information on the nature of Headley's illness or when it came about, but he was a late scratch Friday and will not play. Ronnie Torreyes replaced Headley in the order for Friday's matchup against Jose Fernandez and the Marlins. Still, there's no indication at this point that Headley is in danger of missing Opening day.
