Chase Headley 3B NYY 8 Days

Headley went 1-for-3 with a two-run double Thursday against the Astros.

Headley also struck out for the fourth consecutive game in this one. He has an odd line over that stretch, having gone 5-for-15 (.333) and making eight of his 10 outs via the whiff. All in all, the transition to the Yankees has failed to truly elevate Headley's offensive game.

Headley went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against the Astros on Wednesday.

The multi-hit effort was the second in three games for Headley, whose season numbers still lag behind even the more conservative projections for his 2014 this spring. Thus far, he's been a fixture in the lineup for the Yankees, and his back injury hasn't led to more than the occasional day off since he was acquired from San Diego.

Headley launched his third home run in a Yankee uniform, but it was only his second extra-base hit so far in August.

Chase Headley slugged his first home run since joining the Yankees in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

It was a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth inning. Headley is now 8-for-23 (.348) in six games since the trade that sent him from San Diego to New York and is capable of providing significant fantasy value down the stretch now that he's playing his home games in a much more offense-friendly park.

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Friday against the Blue Jays.

Brian Cashman is a genius. OK, maybe it's a little early for that, but Headley is 6-for-18 (.333) with two doubles and two RBI over his first four games with the Yankees. His arrow is definitely on the rise in fantasy leagues with his new surroundings.

Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations from the Padres for INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula.

The deal is now official. Headley's stock has plummeted since his breakout season in 2012, but he's a worthwhile gamble for the Yankees given their current options at third base. The 30-year-old has swung the bat better of late and has good road numbers for his career, so it would be no surprise if he finishes his walk year on a high note.

Chase Headley has gone back to his natural "unorthodox" grip of the bat, which he last used during his breakout 2012 season.

Headley broke a bone in spring training of 2013, forcing him to go to a more conventional grip. "I struggled when I came back, so I went to a more conventional grip," he said. "I decided to try to stay with it. I gave it a fair number of at bats this year and didn't feel like I was able to control the barrel like I have in the past." Headley has had two four-hit games over his last five contests, suggesting the grip change is working. It's hard to get too excited since he's still batting only .225/.301/.344 overall, but the change is certainly notable.
