The New York Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres in exchange for INF Yangervis Solarte and SP Rafael De Paula. San Diego also will send $1 million to New York.
Fantasy Tip: This is a big move for Headley, who becomes a top crossover FAAB candidate for AL-only players. He's rebounded a bit of late, and moving to the Bronx, a hitter's haven, should bode well for the rest of his second half. Solarte can be added in NL-only games but doesn't hold much upside, especially at PETCO Park. De Paula is a prospect to watch in the coming years but not necessarily stashable outside of full-team dynasty formats.
