Padres to hang on to Headley

The SportsXchange

The San Diego Padres pulled third baseman Chase Headley off revocable waivers after an unidentified team claimed him, reported Thursday.

That means Headley will remain with the Padres for the remainder of the season. The Padres are expected to attempt to sign him to a long-term contract during the off-season.

Headley is under contract for $8.575 million this year. He is eligible for free agency after the 2014 season.

The 29-year-old's production at the plate is down from last year. After beginning this season on the disabled list with a hand injury, Headley is hitting .240 with eight homers and 36 RBIs. Last year, he batted .286 with 31 homers and 115 RBIs and finished fifth in the National League Most Valuable Player voting.
