Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says there is a strong probability that Padres third baseman Chase Headley will be dealt. The San Francisco Giants are in the market for a third baseman and switch hitting, 28-year-old Headley would make perfect sense. It’s just not likely that the Padres would deal him within the division.
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com says the Phillies are letting clubs know they’re eager to move outfielder Hunter Pence.
Pence plays outfield and the Giants are looking for a corner outfielder with some pop. Pence will likely earn $13-to-$14 million next year (final year of arbitration). Pence is 29 years-old and currently hitting .268 with 17 homers and 57 RBI.
Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com says (via twitter) the Giants are still looking for bullpen help. They did have interest in Francisco Rodriguez, until they seen him pitch the other day. He also says they don’t see Jonathan Broxton as the answer to their bullpen.
