Padres Are Ready to Sell
According to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, “At Sunday’s All-Star Futures Game, the biggest in-season gathering of baseball executives, the word was that the Padres are open for business, and that they would even listen if someone wants to talk about third baseman Chase Headley.” He mentions that the Padres aren’t eager to move Headley, and that if teams are interested (which they are), it would take a big offer to acquire him.
While Headley is a possibly, it is believed by most that closer Huston Street and starter Edinson Volquez are the Padres most likely to be dealt by the July 31st deadline. Despite his recent struggles, teams should also be interested in set-up man Luke Gregerson.
