MLB Injury News:
The San Diego Padres had their home opener last night, and apparently they like the new dimensions. The team has struggled to score runs so far this year, but they put nine on the board en route to a 9-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Perhaps it's coincidence, but San Diego hit two home runs in the game. They had hit one in their previous six games combined. Remember, though, Chase Headley is out with a thumb injury. He could bring some power back to the lineup.
Here is your Padres injury update:
As we covered earlier, Carlos Quentin is listed as day-to-day after being hit in the wrist. X-rays have already come back negative, so Quentin should be fine.
Chase Headley is progressing nicely from his fractured thumb. According to Corey Brock of MLB.com, Headley took ground balls yesterday and has been hitting off a tee in the batting cage.
Padres' ace Cory Luebke has resumed his throwing program. He didn't throw for six weeks after initially starting a program following Tommy John surgery. Luebke and the club are not sure whether the time off will delay his return says Brock.
San Diego has struggled out of the gate, but perhaps with the return of players like Headley and Luebke, and once Quentin heats up, the team can be competitive. Not many thought San Diego had a chance to compete for the division this year, but after their hot second half in 2012, many thought the Padres could at least be a challenge for other teams.

Normally, baseball brawls aren't exactly the most exciting but last night, the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers got into on epic one.

Going into the bottom of the sixth inning, the Dodgers held a 2-1 lead over the Padres and pitcher Zack Greinke was rolling along. Unfortunately, to lead off the inning, he hit Carlos Quentin with a 3-2 pitch.
Crappy situation to put the lead-off man on, obviously, but no big deal apart from that, except:
So Quentin is a goddamn idiot. Nobody is dumb enough to think Greinke did...
San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound, breaking Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke's collarbone in the ensuing brawl.
When the Dodgers signed pitcher Zack Greinke to a six-year, $147 million contract in the offseason, they thought they were getting a pitcher, not a fighter, and one that pitched every fifth game, not every fifth week. And they don't pay star center fielder Matt Kemp $160 million to chase down opposing players and be separated by police after the game, either .
Funny how things...
Zack Grienke and Carlos Quentin have some history together. Quentin thinks that Greinke likes to hit him on purpose (3 times over last few years), so when he did last night he charged the mound.
Normally, these fights are harmless, but in this case the shoulder block by Quentin caused Greinke to break his collarbone.
Here is what the combatants had to say.
“I never hit him on...
