The deal will include a full no-trade clause - a pivotal stipulation for Quentin, who is a native of San Diego and wants to remain in his hometown, a source said.
The Padres, who soon will be under new ownership, also...
While some clubs in playoff contention are looking to make significant additions ahead of the trade deadline other contenders are in a better position with regards to weaknesses on their roster. They are approaching this deadline looking to add depth, perhaps in the form of a bench bat and/or middle relief help. Teams looking for a guy that can come off the bench late in a pivotal...
Jon Heyman of cbssports.com is reporting that the Padres are close to a 3-year extension with Carlos Quentin. The deal would be for 27M and with bonuses could reach 30M total. This season Quentin has hit .279/.389/.525 in 40 games, but in 18 games at Petco National Park, Quentin is hitting .230/.309/.410. Not a huge surprise that a Quentin, a fly ball hitter struggles at Petco...
The San Diego Padres are playing much better baseball recently after a deplorable 19-40 start. They are 21-15 over their last 36 games. After scoring seven or more runs only six times in the season's first 70 games, they have done it 11 times in their last 25 games, which explains their 16-9 record over the span. Padres manager Bud Black says the improvement is due to a...
Edinson Volquez has only his glove to blame for falling just short of the first no-hitter in San Diego Padres history.
Volquez threw a one-hitter -- an infield single in the fourth inning that bounced off his glove -- for the first complete game and shutout of his career as the Padres beat the Houston Astros 1-0 on Thursday night.
Alexi Amarista doubled and Logan Forsythe singled...

Carlos Quentin, Yasmani Grandal and Chase Headley each hit home runs as the San Diego Padres powered past the Colorado Rockies 9-5 on Friday night.
Jason Marquis (3-5) pitched five innings for his second straight win for San Diego, which has won four straight and six of seven. Huston Street retired the side in the ninth to secure the win, and has not allowed a run in his last 13...
Remember a couple days ago how I was wondering why the Padres would re-sign Carlos Quentin instead of dealing him? Well, it looks like the extension is happening, and CBS's Jon Heyman is reporting that the parameters are three years and $27 million, comparable to the deals signed by Michael Cuddyer (three years, $31.5 million), Josh Willingham (three years, $21 million),...
It appears that I missed a pretty good pitching performance. I would have watched Edinson Volquez baffle the Astros last night, but I was spending the day at the movies theater seeing The Dark Knight Rises...which is awesome by the way. That is also the reason for this being posted so late this morning. Anyway back to baseball. Again the Padres throw a one hitter, and in doing so...
The San Diego Padres are surging behind strong pitching.
The Colorado Rockies' performance on the mound is a big reason for their troubles.
Jason Marquis will try to keep the Padres rolling and build on his own strong performance in the opener of a three-game set Friday night against the last-place Rockies.
San Diego (39-55) has won five of six while its pitchers have compiled...
The San Diego Padres are on the verge of extending Carlos Quentin to a three-year $27mm extension, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

The Padres viewed Michael Cuddyer, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Willingham...
As the game went on last night one couldn't help but be reminded of the 22 inning affair that took place a couple years ago. The Padres and Rockies were battling it out all night in what was a pretty good game all around. The only bad thing about it was Kip Wells and his 4th inning, and the fact that it took us 12 innings to just lose the game. As a Padres fan it was disheartening...
