Yankees, Padres agree to Chase Headley trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Headley has struggled this season, hitting just .229/.296/.355 in 77 games, though he has been hot lately. Though he has just one home run in the month of July, he is hitting .323 with a .785 OPS in the month, his best so far.

The Padres will reportedly receive infielder Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula from the Yankees, while sending $1 million in cash to the Yankees. Solarte has slowed down from a hot start and is hitting just .254/.337/.381 this season, while DePaula has a 4.15 ERA in 89 innings for Class A Tampa this season.

Yankees prospect starting to get 'comfortable'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2013) Yankees starting pitcher prospect Rafael De Paula struck out at least 10 batters for the second time in four starts for Class A Charleston Sunday. He also tossed a career-best five scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 3.63.

"That's the first time I've seen him this way," Charleston manager Al Pedrique said, per MLB.com. "He looked good a couple times in spring training. First outing, first time in front of the crowd, under the lights, he was a little nervous and erratic with his command but mostly fine. He lasted only two innings in his second start and a little better the next one. Today was as good as I've seen him."

De Paula, who was a 2010 international free-agent signing, has 33 strikeouts to nine walks in 17 1/3 innings. Pitching in the Dominican Summer League last year, De Paula was 8-2 with a 1.46 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 14 starts. He also struck out 85 and walked 18 in 61 2/3 innings. Baseball America considers De Paula the Yankees' 10th-best prospect.

"He's a very quiet kid, very low-key," Pedrique said. "I think he's starting to feel comfortable in front of a crowd, and he showed it today. His composure was much better, more confidence in his stuff. He had a great game."
