WHITE SOX GET TWO YOUNG PITCHERS FOR OUTFIELDER QUENTIN
Mon, 02 Jan 2012 02:20 PM EST

Four years after switching Carlos Quentin from Arizona to the Chicago White Sox, new Padres GM Josh Byrnes is bringing the All-Star outfielder back west, and home to San Diego. Football scores

Byrnes created his 2nd bold move in 2 weeks when he achieved Quentin from the White Sox for 2 players on Saturday. The change is predicted to bolster San Diego’s slow offense. Baseball scores

“Trading Quentin is fairly high on my record of regrets,” Byrnes recounted. “That group in Arizona had plenty of potential. Carlos always stood out for his intensity and his style of play. Having a opportunity to get him back became very appealing here this offseason.”

Quentin will play left field.

The White Sox received minor league pitchers Simon Castro, a right-hander, and Pedro Hernandez, a left-hander.

Quentin is arbitration-eligible for the last time before turning into a free agent after the 2012 season. He is anticipated to receive between $6 million and $7 million. The date for exchanging income arbitration figures is Jan. 18, and settlement audiences begin Feb. 1 in Florida. The Diamondbacks nominated Quentin in the first round of the 2003 amateur draft after he helped Stanford reach the College World Series three straight times.

A shoulder wound limited Quentin to only 1 game in the final month of 2011, but Byrnes related the outfielder is healthy. The 29-year-old Quentin hit .254 with twenty-four home runs, a career-high 31 doubles and 77 RBIs in 118 games during 2011, when he made his 2nd All-Star team.

In 2008, he made his first All-Star team, won the Silver Slugger award and completed in the top 5 of AL Most Valuable Player voting.

“I was here when the park was first built and I’m acquainted with it. I played in it,” he replies. “I’m lucky to have the size physically and be well placed to be successful personally. I’ve always had the strategy of hitting first and staying inside myself. I’ve found that to be most perfect to supply power. I’m not trying on changing that in any way. I will become familiar with the ballpark.”

He was named San Diego’s Male Athlete of the Year in 2000. He was a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award in 2003, his last college season.

Castro, 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, went a mixed 7-8 with a 5.63 Era and 94 strikeouts in 22 starts between Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A Tucson in 2011.

Castro also pitched for the World Team at the All-Star Futures Game in Anaheim, California in 2010.

The Padres, last in the NL West in 2011 at 71-91, were dreadful offensively. They had the least batting average in the National League (.237) ; the second-highest strikeout total in the majors (1,320) ; the fewest homers in the majors (91) ; and scored only 593 runs, second-fewest in the National League.

Two weeks ago, Byrnes traded RHP Mat Latos of the Cincinnati Reds for four players, including starter Edinson Volquez and Yonder Alonso, the leading candidate to start at first base.
