Padres, Diamondbacks Discussed Chase Headley, Justin Upton Trade

The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres have held on-and-off discussions about a trade involving outfielder Justin Upton and third baseman Chase Headley since July, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. While those talks have failed to progress, Rosenthal notes that the Diamondbacks continue to discuss Upton with other clubs, including the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners.


Justin Upton for Chase Headley?
The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres have held on-and-off discussions about a trade involving those players since July, but the talks have failed to progress, according to major-league sources.

The Diamondbacks are also discussing Jason Kubel with other clubs. Arizona is expected to trade one of Kubel or Upton this winter after signing Cody Ross.

The Rangers are hoping to acquire Upton from the Diamondbacks for a package built around third baseman Mike Olt. However, Arizona believes they can receive an even better deal for Upton from another team, possibly the Mariners, according to Rosenthal.
