Quentin, Padres agree to $27M deal through 2015
Quentin, making $7,025,000 this year under his current deal, gets $9.5 million in each of the next two seasons and $8 million in 2015. The contract includes a $10 million mutual option for 2016 which would have a $3 million buyout if he has 320 starts or more from 2013-15.
Quentin may not be traded without his consent, a protection that starts immediately.
The Padres announced the deal on Sunday.
