3B Chase Headley has qualified for arbitration this off-season as a Super Two. He will be gaining a much larger salary from last season. headley finished last season as the starting 3B with 161 games a .264 avg. 11 HRs and 58 RBIs.

We need a lot more offensive production from the hot corner next season. Chase will have to step it up with the bat OR the Padres should look into a possible replacement at the position.

Headley joins pitchers Tim Stauffer, Edward Mujica, Heath Bell and Mike Adams and outfielders Tony Gwynn, Chris Denorfia, Scott Hairston and Ryan Ludwick as Padres who are eligible for salary arbitration.
