Padres | Chase Headley uncertain to return Wednesday

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley (thumb) will likely be in the team's clubhouse on Wednesday, April 17, but manager Bud Black is unsure that the third baseman will be activated from the disabled list for the finale of the series with the Los Angeles Dodgers, which takes place that night. The skipper said Headley is close but didn't elaborate. It appears that the switch hitter finished his rehab assignment with Class A advanced Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, April 16, when he went 1-for-3 and played five innings at the hot corner. Headley was 3-for-12 on the assignment. It seems likely that if Headley isn't activated tonight, he will be for the series that begins Friday, April 18, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: This might be a little frustrating for Headley owners, but the Friars aren't in a hurry considering that Headley is returning a bit ahead of schedule. They have some roster issues to figure out. Headley may need some extra BP and a few days to get back in the swing of things, anyway.
