Padres expose Headley to waivers

The SportsXchange

San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley was placed on waivers, reported Tuesday.

If Headley clears waivers, the Padres have the option to let him go, work out a trade or keep him. His salary is $8.575 million this year and he will be a free agent after the 2014 season.

The Padres and Headley have been unable to reach an agreement on a long-term extension this season.

After a strong 2012 season, Headley has been less productive this year. The 29-year-old is hitting .237 with eight home runs in 35 RBIs in 2013. A year ago, Headley batted .286 with 31 home runs and 115 RBIs.
