Padres signed OF Carlos Quentin to a three-year, $27 million contract extension.
He can get $3 million more in incentives, and the deal also includes a $10 million mutual option for 2016. The Padres certainly need as much pop in the middle of the order as they can get, but it's a risk to give an injury-prone, soon-to-be 30-year-old that much money, especially with San Diego's budget constraints. Quentin is batting .273/.389/.525 with nine homers over 40 games this season. He spent the first two months of the season on the disabled list following knee surgery.
