Padres | Not looking to trade Chase Headley

People with ties to the San Diego Padres are saying that it's "unlikely" that the team looks to seriously trade 3B Chase Headley this summer despite the fact that Headley isn't interested in discussing a contract extension until after the season. The Padres are believed to be seeking a five-year deal worth around $100 million, but their talks with Headley didn't get very far last winter. Headley will become a free agent after the 2014 season. The Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks had been interested in Headley in the past.

Fantasy Tip: Teams will try to pry Headley away from SD this summer, you can be sure of that. However, the Padres prefer to keep Headley in the fold, so it'll take an offer that they can't refuse in order to give him up. This could get interesting.
