Headley To Be Offered Extension By Midseason

According to the San Diego Union Tribune, Padres Executive Rob Fowler has announced that the team intends to offer a contract extension to third baseman Chase Headley before the midsummer classic. The number currently being speculated by Fowler and the club appear to hover around an annual salary of $15 million per season in a “multi-year” deal. Fowler speculates that if Headley accepts the offer, he would stand to receive the largest contract ever offered to a player in Padres history.

Headley has certainly showed his value, having earned both the Silver Slugger and Gold Glove Award this previous season in addition to being the league’s reigning RBI-champion. It is also worth noting that Chase has hit .381 in the last week of April, hopefully a sign of things to come.

Headley is a lifetime .273 hitter in 702 games with 69 Homeruns and 324 RBI. There is a lot of speculation that Headley will be the Padres representative at this year’s All-Star game in New York as well.
