As expected, Chase Headley was able to make the series finale between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers.  He return comes one month after he suffered a fractured thumb during spring training.  Of course, to make room on the roster, the Padres had to make a corresponding move.  Unfortunately, that move was placing another starter, Cameron Maybin, on the DL. According to Corey Brock of MLB.com, Maybin was placed on the 15-day DL with a right wrist impingement.  The injury was suffered on Monday when Maybin made a catch deep in the outfield.  He has been bothered by wrist issues over the last two seasons says Brock. "He had a workup done, and his wrist is extremely sore and they think there's some bone bruising. It had been bothering him off and on," Black said. "He just needs to let it calm down." While the Maybin injury is disappointing, his poor performance over the last year and one month is even more disappointing.  The Padres gave Maybin a nice contract extension before the start of the 2012 season, and he promptly hit .243/.306/.349.  So far this season, he is hitting .093/.167/.121. On the positive side, Headley's return could provide the Padres with a nice offensive boost.  He went 1-for-4 last night and helped San Diego sweep the Dodgers.  In the 7-2 victory, Headley singled, drove in a run, and scored a run.  Not a bad return. Last season, Headley broke out and hit 31 home runs and drove in 115 runs.  The Padres want more of the same.  Headley wants more of the same.  Yesterday was the first step in replicating that production.

Padres CEO Tom Garfinkel: Zack Greinke hit Carlos Quentin on purpose

Zack Greinke has a history of hitting Carlos Quentin.
