Found October 02, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Chase Headley did not exactly follow up his impressive 2012 campaign with a bang.  He struggled for most of the year as trade interest faded and the San Diego Padres once again gained an edge in contract extension talks.  However, he did battle injuries off and on throughout the year.  He was on the disabled list for the final two weeks of the season with a knee injury, and now word has come out that he underwent surgery. Bud Black says Chase Headley had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee this morning "everything came out fine. — Marty Caswell (@MartyCaswell) October 1, 2013 Between the thumb and the knee (depending on how long the knee had really been bothering him), Headley might have a case to make for an injury-reduced production level.  However, many people believe his breakout in 2012 was a fluke.  He hit 31 home runs in 2012 when he had never hit more than 12.  He did club 13 this season, the second-highest total of his career. Overall, Headley hit just .250/.347/.400.  That was good enough for an OPS 128 points lower than last season.  Headley will be entering his final year of club control next season.  The Padres have been torn on whether to give him the money he wants or trade him.  They are probably anxious to get to the negotiation table with this season in the books.  The lower production could give San Diego an edge in negotiations.

Haikuarrhea: Week 26 in Padres Baseball (felina)

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball.

Like sands through the hour glass so are the days of a baseball season...
