NEW YORK (AP) Trying to add offense at third base, the New York Yankees have acquired Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres for infielder Yangervis Solarte and right-hander Rafael De Paula.

The 30-year-old Headley can become a free agent after this season. He's hitting .229 with seven homers and 32 RBIs but has a .339 average since July 4. He was a Gold Glove winner two years ago, when he hit .286 with 31 homers and a National League-leading 115 RBIs.

As part of the deal, the Padres will pay $1 million of the $3,968,443 remaining of his $10,525,000 salary this year.
