Latest Update Chase Headley doubles in a pair of runs Thu Aug, 21, 08:15 PM
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 struggled in his first full month as a Yankee hitting just .237 with six runs, one home run, four RBI and two stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Headley is just getting a routine day off Sunday with Mark Teixeira coming back to handle the work at first base. Martin Prado will stay at the hot corner for the time being Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
You mean to tell me that a player who has the luxury of batting from the left-side of the plate at Yankee Stadium had a good game. In his nine home games since joining the Yankees Headley his hitting .314 (11-for-35) with two home runs and that includes an 0-for-5 performance in Tuesday night's home game against Detroit.Analyst: Michael Pichan
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
