(KGTV) - A familiar face is returning to the San Diego Padres.

The Padres acquired third baseman Chase Headley and pitcher Bryan Mitchell from the New York Yankees in exchange for outfielder Jabari Blash.

Headley, 33, was the team's second-round draft pick in 2005. He went on to play for the Padres from 2007 to 2014. He was traded to New York in July 2014 for infielder Yangervis Solarte and a minor-league pitcher.
