Morosi: Phillies Interested in 3B Headley; Could Trade Cliff Lee

According to FOX baseball writer Jon Morosi on Twitter, the Phillies are interested in Padres third baseman Chase Headley.

Headley, 28, is hitting .267 with 12 homers and 51 RBIs on the season.

Morosi added in a follow-up tweet that the Phillies could use the prospects they get in a trade for a veteran players, likely Joe Blanton or Shane Victorino. But he said if they get Rangers third base prospect Mike Olt for Cliff Lee, they would be out of the Headley talks.

So you heard it from Morosi first that the Phillies could potentially trade Cliff Lee to the Rangers in a deal centered around Olt.
