According to Heyman, the Cleveland Indians are one of the handful of teams that have expressed interest in acquiring the 28-year old switch-hitter, which includes the Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Baltimore Orioles and Arizona Diamondbacks.
Headley is believed to be a movable option because the Padres have a top prospect, Jedd Gyorko, who seems ready to play third base in San Diego.
In a weak hitting market, Headley, 28, brings a lot of plusses. The switch hitter makes a reasonable $3.475 million and remains under team control through 2014. He has a career .811 OPS on the road (compared to .666 at PETCO Park), showing his hitting ability goes beyond his overall numbers. He has a .794 OPS overall this year, with eight homers, 41 RBI and a .271 batting average.
