Padres | Chase Headley has fracture

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley (thumb) has a small fracture in his left thumb and could miss a month. The fracture is near the tip of his finger, and surgery is unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: Jedd Gyorko is probably guaranteed a spot on the opening day roster now, but indications are that they'd like to leave him at second base. That means that Logan Forsythe will likely fill in for Headley at the hot corner. Gyorko will be a mixed universe commodity that will likely be a tad expensive because of his power upside and prospect allure. Headley was in line for some regression after his power explosion last year, and this injury virtually ensures he won't repeat those numbers. His draft position will now be more indicative of his true 2013 value when considering regression in his power numbers.
