Ludwick says he's OK after scary collision

Ryan LudwickBy C. Trent Rosecrans

One of the names that has been mentioned the most leading up to Sunday's non-waiver trade deadline is San Diego's Ryan Ludwick -- and the Padres are exhaling after learning Ludwick is OK after leaving Monday's game in Philadelphia early. However, after the game, Ludwick told MLB.com's Corey Brock he'd be back in the lineup for San Diego on Tuesday (via Twitter).

Ludwick said he felt "woozy" after the collision, but the heat of the day was a factor as well.

Ludwick and center fielder Chris Denorfia collided in right field on a triple by Domonic Brown in the fourth inning. Ludwick stayed in the game long enough to contribute a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning, but left before the bottom of the sixth.

The 33-year-old outfielder is hitting .242/.305/.380 with 11 homers and 62 RBI, including Monday's 1-for-2 performance. A right-handed hitter, Ludwick has not adjusted well to hitting at spacious Petco Park and teams can look at his .280/.349/.507 line in St. Louis from 2007-2010 and hope he'll hit more like he did in red than has disappeared from sight in the camouflage in San Diego.

Ludwick is a free agent after the season and the team's second-highest paid player behind closer Heath Bell, who could also be in another uniform next week.

Trade rumors involving Ludwick?  Ludwick, hell--I'd rather have Denorfia. after what he's done to us these last two games.
