Padres | Chase Headley could miss opening day

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley (thumb) could miss opening day after jamming his thumb trying to break up a double play Sunday, March 17. Headley will undergo X-rays and other various tests. 2Bs Logan Forsythe (foot) and Jedd Gyorko are options for third base if Headley misses significant time. However, Forsythe hasn't played since March 7 due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He's close to returning, though, and did on-field drills Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Once again, wait until we know more on his injury to make an adjustment to Headley on your draft cheat sheets. There are still several weeks until opening day, giving Headley plenty of time to return if the injury isn't very serious.
