Chase Headley Projections

Padres outfielder/third baseman Chase Headley is set to make his '08 debut today against Andy Pettitte and the Yankees.  What can we expect?

Before the sesason, over 550 ABs, I had Headley projected at .266-16-74-85-2.  Such a performance would be worth maybe a buck, in roto terms.  Not really worth your time.

However, Headley deserves extra credit for hitting .305/.383/.556 in a half season at Triple A this year.  That line doesn't do his performance justice; he was a monster following a rough April.  He may have been preoccupied after not making the Padres following a .349/.362/.744 spring.

Factoring in his '08 performance, I could see Headley performing at a .280-20-80 type pace.  That's useful, especially if he qualifies at third.
