Former Vol Chase Headley Traded To New York
The New York Yankees acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres for Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula. The move could potentially give the Yankees some much needed offense for the second half of the season.
Headley and the Padres have struggled to agree on a contract over the past couple seasons, so unloading him seemed like the smart thing for San Diego to do.
The 30-year-old has struggled this season, hitting .229 with only seven homeruns and 32 RBIs. Headley had a breakout campaign in 2012, where he batted .286 with 31 homeruns and 115 RBIs.
