And just like that, Chase Headley is headed back to the Padres where he used to play.  Bryan Mitchell is gone too.  That is brought to us by multiple sources, but we'll give the coverage to the New York Post here:

"The Yankees have dealt Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell to the Padres for outfielder Jabari Blash, The Post’s Joel Sherman reports.

The trade of Headley opens third base for perhaps a Todd Frazier reunion or for top prospect Gleyber Torres, who missed most of last season following Tommy John surgery, and helps the Yankees’ pursuit of getting underneath the luxury-tax threshold. Headley had $13 million left on his contract...

Mitchell, a 26-year-old starter and reliever, has shuffled between the majors and minors the last few seasons. In four years, mostly out of the bullpen, he has a 4.94 ERA in 98 1/3 innings."

Yanks get Blash.  You can review his stats if you click on his name.  Not much there, but the big reason for this trade was unloading Headley.  Blash could develop over time.

Nice move again, Brian Cashman.

Be Read. Get Known.
