The Yankees recently called the Padres to ask about third baseman Chase Headley and, in a brief discussion, were told there wasn’t a deal to be made, sources told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. The Padres are willing to listen on any of their players, but Headley appears to be on the edge of untouchable.
People who have spoken with San Diego have gotten the impression it would take a special prospect to make the Padres even think about trading their star player. In the case of the Yankees, they don’t have that kind of prospect to give and they’ll probably have to seek out a bat elsewhere
Other teams had been hoping the Padres would consider moving Headley since Jedd Gyorko is a natural third baseman and could slide over without issue. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reported earlier this week that the Padres would listen on Headley, but it doesn’t seem like he’ll be changing uniforms this summer.
