Headley went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs in Friday's 14-4 victory over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

His two-run blast in the fourth drove in Starlin Castro, giving Headley both of his August homers over the last four games. He's provided some solid production, typically from the latter half of the order, in 2016, slashing .255/.330/.396 with 12 homers and 42 RBI over 376 at-bats.

Headley is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

His playing time has started to slip lately, as this will mark Headley's fifth day off in the last 10 games. The third baseman's production has not necessarily tailed off, but the Yankees have been making a point of getting Ronald Torreyes' hot bat in the lineup. Torreyes will get the nod again Wednesday, hitting ninth against righty Hisashi Iwakuma.

Headley is out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against Seattle, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Headley had been dealing with a lingering Achilles issue, so it's likely that the Yankees are being careful with their third baseman to avoid further aggravating the injury. Ronald Torreyes will start at the hot corner and hit ninth in Headley's absence.

Headley was held out of Friday's lineup with lingering tendinitis in his left Achilles, Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The third baseman indicated the issue has been bothering him for a little bit, but he also said he was available in Friday's contest and that he felt good enough to play. It sounds as though it's just a minor issue at this point, but it's possible Headley is held out again Saturday or Sunday as a precaution.

Headley is out of Friday's lineup against the Angels, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Headley will get the night off after a Thursday outing that saw him go 2-for-4 with a home run. Ronald Torreyes will start at the hot corner, giving Headley his second day off over the last five days. The 32-year-old will likely return to the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Angels.

Headley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Headley had started the previous six games at third base, going 5-for-19 with two RBI and three runs. While first baseman Mark Teixeira and outfielder Aaron Hicks seem most at risk of losing out on regular starting gigs following the Saturday promotions of well-regarded prospects Tyler Austin and Aaron Judge, Headley too could see a reduction in at-bats over the final month and a half of the season. Austin has the ability to play both corner infield spots and could press Headley for action at third base on days when Teixeira is in the lineup. With both Teixeira and Headley out Sunday, however, Ronald Torreyes will get the nod at the hot corner.

EDGE Analysis

The doubles were Headley's 12th and 13th of the year, and the nice day raised his batting average to .254. It also breaks him out of a 3-for-21 mini-slump over the previous seven games, and brings his RBI total to 37 on the year.
