Offseason Extension Unlikely For Headley

Don't expect the Padres to sign Chase Headley to a long-term contract extension this offseason, says Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). Rosenthal notes that Headley, who finished fifth in NL MVP voting, has "all the leverage" at this point, making the timing less than ideal for the Padres.

The Padres continue to insist there's no chance Headley will be dealt, so it seems that an extension is at least more likely than a trade. Scott Miller of CBSSports.com reported earlier in the week that the two sides had engaged in "very rough" extension talks, but that there wasn't a whole lot of urgency since Headley is still a couple years from free agency. GM Josh Byrnes indicated that the team would continue to explore the subject this winter in hopes of working something out in the spring.
