Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees are finalizing a deal to acquire third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres.
Source: Jack Curry on TwitterNo word yet on what the Padres will receive in return, but it will obviously be a lot less than they could have received a year or two ago. He's also due to be a free agent this offseason. Headley is batting just .229/.296/.355 with seven home runs and 32 RBI over 77 games this season, but he has played better of late and could finish strong in the hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium. There's no question that he's an upgrade over what the Yankees currently have at third base. Jul 22 - 1:06 PM
According to @JonHeymanCBS, Yanks send Solarte, and Class A RHP Rafael DePaula to SD. Padres pay $1M of Headley's contract.
