07:07 AM ET 07.18 | Despite the effort from New York, Padres star third baseman Chase Headley won't likely be wearing pinstripes any time soon. The Yankees recently called for [Headley] and were told there wasn't a deal to be made, according to people familiar with the brief discussion. While the Padres are willing to listen on any of their players, Headley appears to be about as close as possible to an untouchable player without actually being one. People who have spoken to the Padres have the impression it would take a special prospect to make the Padres even consider a trade for Headley. Anyway, it's not believed the Yankees possess that type of prospect. So the Yankees' search for bats, particularly right-handed ones, will go on. One righty bat who is available is the Cubs' Alfonso Soriano.
