Padres manager Bud Black said Chase Headley (calf) is still a ways away from any productive swinging in the cage.
Unfortunately, this is not a good sign for Headley or his potential owners. He was given a two to three week timetable when he was first diagnosed with a strained calf last week, but it appears that this could be a three o four week recovery time which would obviously put his status for Opening Day in jeopardy. Keep an eye on the situation. On a positive note, the injury doesn't appear to be one to keep him out for long once the season opens, so perhaps his condition now could get him to you in drafts at a bargain rate.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
