|Chase Headley's errorless streak ends at 67 games|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) Padres third baseman Chase Headley snapped a streak of 67 consecutive games without an error dating back to Aug. 21, when he misplayed a grounder in the second inning Monday against the Cardinals. He had 156 chances in between errors.
|Padres not looking to deal Chase Headley|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Even though contract talks have been put on hold, the Padres have no intention of dealing third baseman Chase Headley before this summer's trade deadline, according to a report from CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
According to sources close to the team, a trade is "unlikely" this season, as the team continues to hope it can re-sign Headley to a long-term contract. While Headley's agent did not return a message to Heyman, Padres general manager Josh Byrnes was willing to speak about his desire to keep Headley.
"Our first choice is to sign him," Byrnes told Heyman by phone.
Headley is still two offseasons away from becoming a free agent, but the Padres have already turned down plenty of offers for the Silver Slugger award winner.
"A couple teams tried pretty hard. But obviously we had a pretty high standard," Byrnes said. "And obviously, we think even higher of him now."

(5/6/13) Padres third baseman Chase Headley entered Monday's series opener against the Marlins with a 10-game hitting streak. He has gone 14 for 38 (.368) over that span with two homers and six RBI. His average has gone from .160 to .286 during that stretch.
After missing the first half of April recovering from a thumb injury, the 28-year-old told MLB.com that he's finally feeling comfortable at the plate.
"You have your select few natural guys who wake up out of bed and can come put the barrel on the baseball each and every day without thinking about it," Headley said. "Unfortunately, I'm not one of those guys. It takes me some time, it takes me some repetition to get me where I want to be. But hopefully once I get there, I can sustain it."
|Chase Headley won't negotiate new deal in season|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Padres third baseman Chase Headley expressed his interest in staying in San Diego long-term, but does not want to negotiate a new deal in season.
"We made it abundantly clear [before] that we didn't want to talk about it during the season," said Headley. He added, "I didn't think that for me and for the team that it was good to get caught up with all of this during the season."
The Padres are rumored to submit an offer that would make Headley their highest paid player in club history. They reportedly wanted to get something done around midseason, but that doesn't seem likely unless Headley alters his position.

(5/1/13) Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler told U-T San Diego on Wednesday that the club will offer third baseman Chase Headley a "multi-year" deal "before midseason" what would make him the highest paid player in franchise history.
Headley, who led the National League with 115 RBI last season, is batting .261 with two homers and five RBI through 12 games.
"Will it be 10 years? No," Fowler said. "We're not going to do something like that. But we will do an offer that will be the largest offer we've ever made to a player in San Diego history and think it will be very close to some of the numbers I read in the press."
|Most breakthroughs happen so early in a player's career that you never have reason to question whether or not they will happen. But others take time. Some, in fact, take so long that you're pretty sure they'll never happen, until they do. Which brings us to Headley, the sweet-swinging switch-hitter who, with his four homers during an injury-plagued 2011, appeared to have leveled off as a marginally productive third baseman with favorable road splits. The first half of 2012 looked like more of the same. But something clicked for Headley on Aug. 1 at Cincinnati -- a hitter's park, oddly enough. From that point forward, he hit 19 home runs with a .318 batting average and 1.020 OPS in 220 at-bats. His performance was basically on par with Miguel Cabrera during that stretch, and he earned MVP consideration as a result. So now what? Is Headley elite? Can he do it again? No one can say for sure. But with the fences coming in at PETCO Park, making it not so PETCO Park anymore, we'll basically get to see the road version of Headley every time out. The last two months last year were probably a sneak peak of that. Though you may opt for the more proven Ryan Zimmerman or David Wright on Draft Day, Headley deserves to go off the board in that same class. (Updated 12/4/12)|
