Found April 10, 2013 on 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.

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...
