Yankees will not get Headley unless "it's absolutely the right deal"

USA TODAY Sports

Jon Heyman says the Yankees won't be getting Padres 3B Chase Headley, because he's barely on the market and just short of being untouchable.

Even if they were able to deal for Headley I'm not sure that ends their search for a bat. This isn't the 2012 Headley that we're talking about, though he has been better as of late.

The Yankees thought Headley could fill in at 3B for Alex Rodriguez or play first, but after a phone call they got the impression that the Padres would need "a special prospect" in return for last year's team MVP.

The Padres will keep the switch-hitting Headley unless "it's absolutely the right deal,'' according to someone familiar with their thinking.

That's kind of a vague generalization from a vague source, but that's what's keeping Headley in San Diego for the time being.
