Head was signed by scout Scott Barnsby and made his pro debut in 2006. While playing for the Kinston Indians on August 4, 2008, Head was asked to come in to pitch against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. He relieved Jansy Infante, another position player who had just given up five earned runs without getting any hitters out; Head gave up just a hit and a walk with no earned runs. As a result, Infante now owns the worst possible career ERA a pitcher can have (infinity), while Head has the best possible career ERA (0.00).
Head was MVP of the 2010 Triple-A National Championship, going 3 for 4 with two doubles and four RBI in a Columbus Clippers win. He reached the majors with the Indians in 2011, making his debut on August 28th against the Kansas City Royals. He got the start in left field that game and notched his first big league hit. However, he only went 3 for 24 (.125) in 10 games and never returned to the big leagues after that.
He spent 2012 with the Toledo Mud Hens, in the Detroit Tigers organization, where he hit .268 in 65 games. In 2013, he finished his professional career in the Washington Nationals organization, splitting time between the AA Harrisburg Senators and AAA Syracuse Chiefs. In 117 games, he hit .252 with 22 doubles and 13 homers.
