QUENTIN AND SAN DIEGO PADRES AGREED TO THREE-YEAR CONTRACT
Wed, 25 Jul 2012 11:29 AM EDT

Carlos Quentin has concluded to a $27 million, 3-year agreement with the San Diego Padres that includes a no-trade clause.

The outfielder, making $7,025,000 this year under his present deal, gets $9.5 million in each one of the next two seasons and $8 million in 2015. The deal encompasses a $10 million mutual option for 2016, which would have a $3 million buyout if he has 320 starts or even more from 2013-15.

“This is an amazing opportunity for me to stay and play in the city I grew up in,” Quentin declared. “I believe in this organization and what they are doing and I believe they have a belief in me and I would have liked to take part in it.”

The 29-year-old Quentin had arthroscopic right knee surgery in the spring training and missed the 1st 49 games of the season. But he homered 5 times in his first 6 games for the Padres after being activated from the DL on May 28. He began the day with a .273 batting average, 9 homers and 22 RBIs in 40 games. Las Vegas odds

The Padres management team sought approval from the present owners as well as the new possession group to make sure everybody was on the same page.

“The reasoning hasn’t modified a lot since the day we traded for him,” San Diego Padres GM Josh Byrnes said. “He’s a proven middle-of-the-order bat that we need. He brings intensity, an edge, and a swagger to our team that we need.”

Selected by Arizona with the 29th overall pick in the 2003 amateur draft, Quentin is a .253 career hitter with 130 home runs and 405 RBIs in 656 games.

Quentin made his Major League debut originally with the Diamondbacks in 2006. He was bought by the Padres in this past offseason in a trade with the Chicago White Sox for prospects Simon Hernandez and Pedro Hernandez on December 31; he grew up in close by Chula Vista and attended University High School in San Diego.

“I’m happy about it,” Padres manager Bud Black claimed. “I think it’s great for the Padres, excellent for the city and great for Carlos. Having Carlos for a number of years add continuity to the club. He’s a guy we can put in the middle of our order on an everyday basis. There are a lot of positives.”

The Padres also activated left-hander Eric Stults from the 15-day DL before Sunday’s game against Colorado Rockies, and optioned right-hander Nick Vincent to Triple-A Tucson.

Stults had been sidelined with a strained lumbar region muscle since June 6. He’s 1-2 with a 3.33 ERA in 4 starts with San Diego, which claimed him off waivers from the Chicago White Sox on May 17.

Vincent has made 7 relief appearances during two stints with the Padres, going 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA. The newbie earned his 1st major league win on June 28 and has pitched for both Double-A San Antonio and Tucson this season.
