Headley breaks thumb, will miss start of season

Posted: Updated:

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley will miss at least the first two weeks of the season after breaking the tip of his left thumb.

Headley was injured Sunday while sliding into second base trying to break up a double play. He went to San Diego, and an exam Monday revealed the fracture.

The injury is not likely to require surgery.
