• Yankees get Headley from Padres for Solarte, prospect

    Summary of 18 articles · Updated Jul 23, 2014
    - The New York Yankees acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres on Tuesday for infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-handed pitching prospect Rafael De Paula, the Yankees announced. The invisible general manager of the San Diego Padres struck again Tuesday, trading third baseman Chase Headley to the New York Yankees for infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula. The Yankees have had interest in Headley for some time, but they were not able to get the deal done until he was fast approaching free agency. After all, Headley was hitting .323 in July for the Padres, with four doubles, one triple, one home run, and nine RBI a huge improvement for a player now hitting .229 for the season. The Yankees now have Brandon McCarthy and Chase Headley as tangible proof of general manager Brian Cashman's many hours of July negotiating, but with the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaching, they would like to cross the finish line on more deals. The trade is the second that General Manager Brian Cashman has made this month to improve the Yankees’ chances of making the playoffs. Tulowitzki left Saturday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates with a cramp in his quadriceps and had missed two games since then before the team made the announcement before Tuesday night's matchup with the Washington Nationals.
