Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer run and three RBI in Monday's 14-1 win over Kansas City.

The homer, Headley's sixth of the season, was one of three the Yankees hit off Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie in the first inning. Headley was batting out of the two-hole for the second straight day, and he may continue to see regular time there while Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is sidelined.

Headley's output this season more closely resembles the totals he put in the first half of 2014 before getting traded midseason, as he's slashing just .234/.284/.379. The Yankees were hoping he could continue his hot second half when they re-signed him over the offseason, but Headley has at least flashed decent power, hitting four home runs to go along with four doubles and a triple.

Headley wasn't available Tuesday due to a sore back, The Westchester Journal News reports.

Gregorio Petit got the start at third, but after suffering an injury of his own, the Yankees elected to put Alex Rodriguez in as his replacement rather than Headley. It doesn't appear to be anything more than a minor issue, and Headley appears set to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game, but it could be a situation worth monitoring if he's held out again.

Headley is not in the lineup Monday against the Rays.

Headley went 1-for-4 with a single in Friday's win over the Mets.

Headley has gotten off to a bit of a slow start as he's slashing just .242/.306/.379 in 17 games. He's launched two homers, but each came in the opening week, leaving the third baseman with just a pair of extra base hits in the following two weeks. Headley's slash line is similar to his 2014 output, but his numbers improved after the Yankees acquired him mid-season, and were hopeful that he could benefit from a full season playing at Yankee Stadium.
