teams have interest in Chase Headley.
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Dodgers, Pirates, Indians, Orioles, Diamondbacks and two unidentified teams are believed to have "some level of interest" in a trade for Chase Headley.
Headley is a popular guy, but since he's under team control through 2014, it will likely take a lot for the Padres to move him. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .271/.372/.421 with eight home runs, 42 RBI and a .794 OPS through 82 games this season and would likely blossom in a more favorable home environment. The switch-hitter owns a .666 career OPS at PETCO Park compared to an .811 career OPS on the road.
if the Padres were to move Headley, they could promote Jedd Gyorko to take over at 3B. he's come up through the minors as a 3B prospect, but as far as I know has been playing 2B this season in the minors.
