The San Diego Padres and third baseman Chase Headley agreed to a one-year deal, worth $10.525 million and avoiding arbitration, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Daily News.
Though Headley had a subpar 2013 , he will be looking for a long-term deal after this season. His power numbers went down significantly as trade rumors surrounded him most of the year.
Headley hit .251 with 13 home runs and 50 RBIs a season after setting career-highs with 173 hits, 31 homers and 115 RBIs.
This is the third straight season he has had an increase in his salary. He made $2.325 million in his breakout season of 2012 and took home $8.575 million last season.
