Yesterday MLB Daily Dish's Nathan Aderhold reported that the San Diego Padres had started listening to offers for third baseman Chase Headley. However, Josh Byrnes told Peter Gammons that he's not ready to break up his team just yet.

Josh Byrnes:"We've worked hard to put together a good offensive team(1st OPS+ last 2 months). We're not breaking it up now." Headley thus...
Based on Byrnes' comments, Gammons went on to speculate that the Padres aren't likely to revisit trading Headley until closer to the 2013 trade deadline. San Diego has expressed an interest in potentially retaining Headley by signing him to a long-term contract extension. However, the third baseman could also be dealt to help expedite the team's rebuilding effort.
