Giants unwilling to give Headley a fourth year?

The Giants are reportedly “dead set” against offering Chase Headley a four-year deal, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.

If true, that would figure to significantly decrease the Giants’ chances of landing Headley, who has been reported to already have a four-year, $65 million offer in hand from an unidentified team. Regardless of the validity of that four-year, $65 million offer, Headley is likely to be able to find a four-year deal somewhere on the market.

The Yankees are the team that stands to benefit the most from the Giants’ apparent unwillingness to offer a fourth year. Though the Marlins and Astros have also been linked to Headley in recent days — and one of those two could very well be the mystery club that already has an offer out — the Yankees and Giants have been considered strong favorites ever since Pablo Sandoval signed with the Red Sox earlier this offseason.

Headley is expected to sign a deal at some point this week and could do so as soon as Tuesday, so there should be some clarity provided to this situation in the very near future.
