Report: Chase Headley could come to decision as soon as Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Third baseman Chase Headley could come to a decision about his free agency as soon as Monday, according to WFAN. The Yankees and Giants are among the teams pursuing the 30-year-old infielder.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated during an interview Monday with NBC New York the team's desire to re-sign Headley, and apparently Headley's desire to stay in New York.

"I do know this -- Chase wants to be a Yankee," Cashman said, per NJ.com. "He was a tremendous acquisition in the second half. A great leader. A tremendous defender. A switch-hitter with great discipline. He kind of checks off every box that we’d like a prototypical Yankee to look like.

"If we can find common ground, I’d like to have him man third base as we move forward."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Free-agent third baseman Chase Headley is not a candidate to return to the Padres, according to MLB.com.

While the team is said to be seeking bats, it's not believed Headley would be a fit. The 30-year-old hit .243/.328/.372 over 470 at-bats last season. He spent the first seven and a half seasons with San Diego.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The Yankees are planning to offer third baseman Chase Headley a three-year contract, but he is likely to look for a bigger offer, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Among those teams, the Giants and Blue Jays appear to be the most likely candidates for Headley.

Headley hit .249 with 13 home runs and 49 RBI between San Diego and New York last season. 


Giants turn attention to Cruz, Scherzer after Sandoval departure


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) With the Red Sox officially signing Pablo Sandoval, the Giants have begun talks with a variety of free agents including pitcher Max Scherzer and outfielder Nelson Cruz, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Sandoval’s departure allows the Giants to focus their assets elsewhere and the Giants have also expressed interest in Nick Markakis, Torii Hunter and Chase Headley.


Report: Sandoval signing could impact Headley's free-agent plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) It's not a mystery that the Yankees are looking to re-sign third baseman Chase Headley. However, the competition to sign him could heat up, if he isn't re-signed by the time Pablo Sandoval agrees to a contract, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

The Red Sox and Giants could become options for Headley, if one or neither sign Sandoval. The Blue Jays and White Sox could also make a push to sign Headley, according to Rosenthal.


A-Rod won't be starting 3B, if Yankees signs Headley or another FA


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) It appears the Yankees concern about Alex Rodriguez returning to an everyday role at third base in 2015 are very real. General manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday if the team signs Chase Headley or another third baseman, then that player "would be our starting third baseman," per the New York Daily News.

There have been reports the Yankees are very interested in bringing back Headley because they don't feel Rodriguez will be able to play third base on an everyday basis. The concerns appear to be over Rodriguez's age (39) and durability issues. He hasn't played more than 140 games since 2007. He missed the 2014 campaign due to a season-long suspension.


Report: Yanks want to re-sign Headley over concerns about A-Rod


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Yankees are making a strong push to re-sign free agent infielder Chase Headley because they don't feel Alex Rodriguez will be able to play third base on an everyday basis in 2015, a source told ESPN. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported in early November the Yankees begun talks to bring back Headley.

The source said the Yankees "are looking at Headley to start at third, play some DH and back up Mark Teixeira at first base."

The source added the concerns about Rodriguez, who missed the 2014 season due to a suspension, the recent revelations regarding Rodriguez's past ties to performance-enhancing drugs.

"He's going to be 40 years old and he's had a really tough time staying on the field the past couple of seasons," the source said. "He's had two hip operations and a knee operation, and a lot of baseball people in the Yankees' organization have concerns about how much he can give them at this age."


Yankees interested in bringing back Chase Headley


(11/3/2014) With Pablo Sandoval’s $100 million asking price appearing too steep, the Yankees have begun negotiations with third baseman Chase Headley, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Yankees acquired Headley via trade during the 2014 season, and he posted 13 home runs, 49 RBI and a .243 batting average.

Heyman reports that by pursing Headley, the Yankees may not feel comfortable with Alex Rodriguez as their starting third baseman and a switch to first base may be in his future. 


Red Sox to target Pablo Sandoval, Chase Headley


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Red Sox will target Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley this offseason, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Both players are set to be free-agents, though both could opt to remain in their current organizations. Boston would have interest in Aramis Ramirez if he's made available, but it's believed Ramirez will stay with Milwaukee. Will Middlebrooks hit just .191 over 215 injury-riddled at-bats last season.
