Third base is as thin a position as any in the MLB, and Headley represents the best option on the trade market by far, so it comes as no surprise that market is very strong for the 28-year-old. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, sources have indicated there is a "strong possibility" he is dealt.
Heyman reported back in early July that at least seven teams had shown legitimate interest in Headley, but now that he is viewed as a more likely candidate to be moved, more teams could step forward.
Predicted Landing Spot: Baltimore Orioles
I originally felt that Headley would wind up with the Dodgers, but after their recent acquisition of Hanley Ramirez, that likely won't happen, as Ramirez and Dee Gordon will make up the left side of the Dodgers infield moving forward.
Among the remaining teams that have shown interest, I think the Orioles make the most sense, as they could use the offensive boost this season but are also a team on the rise without a real option moving forward at third base—with Wilson Betemit and Mark Reynolds both headed for free agency.
