PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley will be out at least two weeks because of a calf strain, giving manager Bud Black an opportunity to look at a handful of other options.
It could be a wise move for the future with Headley already saying he's not sure the sides can come to an agreement on a long-term contract before the start of the season.
Black said Sunday the team hopes to know more in the next few days about just how long Headley will be sidelined, but did say it would be at least two weeks. Headley is scheduled to have an MRI on his right calf on Monday.
Black said there would be four or five players he'll give a look to at third base while Headley is out.
