Headley was held out of Saturday's game with the back issue that cost him three games earlier in the week, LoHud.com reports.

Headley's back had acted up earlier in the week, and though he was able to return and start the team's past two tilts, he went 0-for-7 with three strikeouts in that span. Manager Joe Girardi indicated his third baseman didn't mention the back flaring up again, but the skipper suggested the 32-year-old didn't look 100 percent healthy in his two games back. After getting an extra day off, Headley will look to return to the lineup Sunday for the series finale against the Blue Jays.
