Latest Update Chase Headley extends hit streak to nine games with home run Mon Jul, 28, 07:07 AM
Bats well from both sides with a sweet swing. Takes a smart and patient approach at the plate. Has some speed. Is pretty good with the glove.
Flaws: : Despite very good patience, he strikes out too much and doesn't justify it with enough power. Needs to show he can play consistently well in all areas.
Headley has now hit safely in his last nine games and is batting .333 (12-for-36) with one home run, six RBI and four runs scored. While there isn't much power represented right now, he's just getting warmed up in his new ballpark. Moving from Petco Park to Yankees Stadium is going to be a real treat for Headley and his owners. He'll always remain a streaky hitter, but the good streaks are about to produce even more this time around.Analyst: Howard Bender
Though Headley was somewhat of a one-year wonder, the move to New York can only be a good thing. Since arriving in New York, he is 3-for-10 with a couple of RBIs. He will play everyday and should see an increase in numbers across the board.Analyst: David Kerr
It's a nice RBI slot to be in, but who's to say that this is where he'll stick most of the time? We'll probably see a few different lineup configurations over the next few weeks while manager Joe Girardi sorts everything out and sees what works best. Analyst: Howard Bender
Headley, who was hitting .200 (10-for-50) without a home run in his career versus Kershaw, before bringing an end to scoreless innings streak at 41 with the solo-shot. The home run was Headley's first since being activated from the DL back on June 24th and first since he hit his seventh of the season back on June 14th.Analyst: Michael Pichan
