Padres third baseman Chase Headley is off to a slow start in his walk year and now he has another injury to deal with, as Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that he left tonight’s game against the Nationals with a right calf strain. He appeared to tweak it on a swing in the second inning.

It’s a concerning development, as Headley missed a month during spring training with the very same injury. As such, a trip to the disabled list would not be surprising.

Headley, 29, is batting just .186 (13-for-70) with two home runs and seven RBI through 20 games this season. He has been playing through right biceps and left knee soreness.

        Scary, in a couple months I will turn 32 and my back is already going out. I know what you are going thru Chase, although you are in much better shape than me……

    Is this guy worth the risk of a long term contract? I think the Padres should trade him in the next couple of months for whatever youth they can get in return. His career is one good season mixed between tons of DL stints.

    Not sold on chase.he had one good year and says he didn’t wanna negotiate during season for extension.padres offered him largest contract in team history and he turned it down.could be the biggest blessing in disguise for the pads.. I would trade him at deadline because he isn’t worth 5 hat contract anymore.he has blew it and will regret turning down that contract because he isn’t gonna get anything near it now from any team when he is a free agent.guy is always injured and inconsistent……
