Padres Release Chase Headley

Published

on

The San Diego Padres have announced that they have officially released veteran third baseman Chase Headley following this past weekend’s DFA, according to The Athletic’s Dennis Lin.

Headley has had a brutal 2018 thus far, batting a terrible .115 but is earning a ballooned $13M in the final year of a four-year, $52M deal he inked with the New York Yankees.

Headley has $9.5M left on that deal, so whichever team he signs with in free agency will be responsible for that fee.

Headley is available to any club that wishes to sign him to a minor league contract, and he’ll only be owed the pro-rated portion of the league minimum under a new deal.
