Thanks to Gaslamp Baller Felipe for breaking the news that the Padres are calling up Chase Headley to replace an injured Kevin Kouzmanoff. Paul McAnulty is being sent back to Portland effective tomorrow.
- ESPN : San Diego's top prospect Headley to join team for series vs. Red Sox: Buster Olney of ESPN thinks the Padres are playing the Red Sox tomorrow. I can understand ESPN not having any idea what the Padres are doing, but it surprises me that they don't all have Boston's schedule memorized. That's not like them, since they televise every one of their games and then immediately show highlights on Baseball Tonight following the game.
- MadFriars.com talked with Headley right after he heard the news today and will have an interview with him up later tonight.
- RotoWorld tells us that Headley has been tearing it up in AA this month.
Kevin Kouzmanoff left the game in the fourth inning after he hurt himself swinging the bat. The Padres said he had a lower back strain and is day to day.
