Yankees Trade Chase Headley to Padres, Lowering Payroll

Jabari Blash was traded to the Yankees Tuesday in a deal that sent Chase Headley to the Padres

Headley is under contract for one more season and is owed $13 million.

Here's what you should know about the recently acquired Blash. Gleyber Torres, the Yankees' top prospect, has a good chance of making the major league roster next year, either at third base or second. He's way down New York's depth chart and is unlikely to ever play a game for the Yankees. The 33-year-old switch hitter batted.273 with 12 home runs and 61 RBIs in 147 games last season. The club likewise maintains an interest in getting under the $197 million payroll threshold which would trigger yet another year of 50% luxury tax payments for the Yankees.

Headley had a steady but unspectacular three-and-a-half seasons in the Bronx, and now will return to San Diego, where he started his career in 2007. With the Yankees planning to keep Brett Gardner and rotate the DH spot between him, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge there would not figure to be much playing time there for Frazier in 2018 if he returned to wear pinstripes. That could get Todd Frazier back for them, perhaps. He, of course, played for the Padres from 2007 through the middle of 2014, when he was dealt to NY.

Headley, a third baseman, hit.273/.352/.406 for the Yankees previous year.

Mitchell, 26, debuted for the Yankees in 2014.

Andujar, a third baseman who had a short stint in the big leagues last season, is the only one of the four who doesn't play both positions.

Preller envisions Mitchell as a starter with the Padres behind Clayton Richard, Luis Perdomo and Dinelson Lamet, competing with Colin Rea and Robbie Erlin. "We kind of compare that to the free-agent market, and probably more intrigued in terms of the upside". He played both corner outfield spots past year and hit.213/.333/.341 with five homers, six doubles and 16 RBIs over a total of 61 contests.
