Found May 18, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Rumors involving potential Chase Headley trades began to swirl earlier this year when the third baseman told the San Diego Padres that he wouldn’t discuss a contract extension until the offseason. However, people with ties to the team told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports that it’s “unlikely” there will be a trade involving the Padres’ slugger. Prior to Headley cutting off talks when the regular season started, the Padres didn’t get extremely far in extension discussions with the third baseman. Heyman notes that San Diego was hoping for a deal south of $100 million, likely in the five-year, $75 million range. While Headley’s demands haven’t been defined, there is belief that he’s targeting Ryan Zimmerman’s six-year, $100 million extension with Washington Nationals. The Padres’ first choice is to re-sign Headley, according to general manager Josh Byrnes. He hasn’t ruled out listening to offers for Headley – who will become a free agent after the 2014 season – but it did say that the team’s asking price has increased over the past season-plus. Still, San Diego figures to receive calls for Headley. The 29-year-old garnered MVP consideration last season, and he’s off to another hot start, hitting .296/.402/.500 with eight doubles and four home runs over 117 plate appearances.
