CHICAGO (AP) -The San Diego Padres purchased the contract of infielder Chase Headley from their Double-A farm club at San Antonio on Friday and optioned infielder/outfielder Paul McAnulty to Triple-A Portland.
Headley was the starter at third base Friday as San Diego opened a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs. The second-round pick in the 2005 draft out of Tennessee, Headley batted .357 with 13 homers and 42 RBIs for San Antonio.
McAnulty batted .200 with a homer and five RBIs in 20 games for the Padres.
Headley started Friday because Kevin Kouzmanoff left Thursday's game against the Devil Rays in the fourth inning after straining his back while taking a swing.
