Headley (personal) went 0-for-1 after entering Thursday's contest as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning.

EDGE Analysis

Headley was excused from the team for personal reasons Wednesday and was held out of the lineup Thursday as he didn't return to the club prior to the start of their afternoon tilt against the Orioles. The third baseman looks to be back in a full capacity now though, and will likely return to the lineup Friday.

Headley (personal) is expected to re-join the Yankees at some point Thursday, the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is out of the lineup Thursday, as he was excused for personal reasons Wednesday and was not a given to be back with the team for Thursday's day game. However, assuming he rejoins the club at some point Thursday, he'll likely be back manning the hot corner Friday.

Headley (personal) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Orioles, LoHud's Chad Jennings reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what the exact nature of Headley's absence is, as he has not been placed on the bereavement or paternity lists. Ronald Torreyes will start at third base and hit ninth Thursday. Headley was heating up over the last couple months, hitting six homers since the start of June.

Headley was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees have said that Headley was excused for personal reasons and that he is healthy, but he will be replaced by Ronald Torreyes who will play third base and bat ninth. The Colorado native is hitting .200 since the All-Star break but has hit two home runs in five games, bringing his total to nine on the season.

Headley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The homer helped inch the Yankees back late in the contest and created a save situation, but it was ultimately not enough. Headley is enjoying a strong July, as he's slashing .297/.366/.595 on the month and is currently riding a four-game hitting streak.

Headley homered, scored twice and knocked in a pair of runs in a 3-for-5 game Tuesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Headley has now homered in consecutive games and has hit four of his seven home runs in his past 12 games. His overall line is still poor at .254/.331/.379, but he is hitting a robust .275/.362/.575 over his current hot streak and is looking like he has found a groove for the first time all year.

Headley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Headley had started the previous 21 games for the Yankees, going 19-for-71 (.268 average) with two homers and nine RBI. While he's been one of the lower-end fantasy performers at third base this season, Headley still appears to be locked into a full-time role. He's just getting a day off Sunday, allowing Ronald Torreyes to make a rare start at third base.

Headley went 1-for-3 with a grand slam in Wednesday's victory over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The four runs got the scoring started, and the Yankees needed every one that they could get, as they escaped with a 9-8 win. Headley has hit .284 in June with the one home run and seven RBI and has rebounded from a rocky start to post a .251/.328/.355 slash line that is mostly in line with his career numbers.

Headley is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Headley had drawn the start in nine consecutive contests, hitting .235 over that span, so it looks to be just a regular day off. Ronnie Torreyes will take over at third base and bat ninth Wednesday in his stead.

Headley went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts during Wednesday's loss against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Headley left three men on base, and his average dropped to a dismal .230 after another poor performance. Even though Headley managed to hit .298 during May, he's looked lost at the plate for the majority of the season, and he only hit .150 in April. A reasonable expectation for him would be to hit somewhere between those two averages.
