Yankees and Padres deal
NEW YORK (AP) — The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres in an attempt to add some offense to the line-up. New York sends infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula to San Diego.
The 30-year-old Headley can become a free agent at the end of the season. He’s hitting .229 with seven homers and 32 RBIs but has a .339 average since July 4. Two years ago he was the National League RBI leader.
