This site is great...

But I would love to see the call, I dropped Bonds for him so it is like giving up an empty spot.

Per rotoworld.

Rotoworld wrote: Chase Headley went 5-for-5 with a double and a walk Thursday for Triple-A Portland.

Headley is 19-for-39 in his last nine games, moving him up to .304/.383/.464 for the season. That he's gotten hot increases the chances that he'll be called at some point during the first half, but Jody Gerut is likely ahead of him for a shot.

Not that I have any inside information but I'm going to have to disagree with Rotoworld on the Jody Gerut call. I fail to see how a 30 year old minor leaguer with little to no success in the majors is ahead of their top prospect on the depth chart. The fact that Gerut is dominating AAA pitching isn't surprising to me since he has been competing in the minors for about 8 year now...

Headley isn't exactly tearing up AAA currently and owns a 23.4% K rate.

Sometimes you just have to see if they can sink or swim but a premature call up could be detrimental to a young hitter's psyche/development.

Not quite what some expected, from http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd ... p&c_id=mlb

The Padres decided to sever ties with Jim Edmonds on Friday, releasing the 37-year-old, eight-time Gold Glove winner after he struggled offensively and defensively during the first month of the season.

...

The Padres have recalled outfielder Jody Gerut from Triple-A Portland to take Edmonds' spot on the 25-man roster.

The only reason Gerut is being called up is cause he can play CF

Edmonds released Gerut will be starting in CF

Towers said on radio dont expect Chase to be up before June maybe July.

The Padres called up outfielder Jody Gerut from Triple-A Portland and he started in center Friday night. Gerut, on San Diego's opening day roster, hit .308 five home runs and 18 RBIs in 27 games with the Beavers.

Towers said there probably will be other moves. But he said the team is not inclined to bring up outfield prospect Chase Headley given the current atmosphere and the fact fans might expect him to be a savior. Headley was converted from third base to left field in spring training.

Does anyone really see Headley as having much fantasy value? He isn't a true elite prospect from anything I've read, and as an Adrian Gonzalez owner, I can tell you what Petco does to really good hitters.

I think I would stay away even if Chase got the call, but maybe I'm wrong ...
