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
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
