WASHINGTON (AP) — San Diego third baseman Chase Headley has left the Padres' game against the Washington Nationals in the middle of the second inning with a strained right calf.

Headley flied out to center in the top of the second Thursday night, then did not take his spot in the field in the bottom half.

Alexi Amarista replaced Headley at third base and in the fifth spot in the batting order.

Headley, who led the NL with 115 RBIs in 2012, entered the game batting .188 with two homers, seven RBIs and more strikeouts (20) than hits (13).

He was slowed by a strained right calf during spring training and missed the first 14 games last season because of a fractured left thumb.
