San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley was placed on waivers, CBSSports.com 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.
