Jon Heyman reports that Padres outfield Carlos Quentin may be open to waiving his no-trade clause.

Quentin received complete no-trade protection on the three-year, $27 million contract extension that he signed in July 2012. But with the Padres going no place, Heyman says Quentin would be willing to waive it to go to a contender.

Quentin is struggling mightily this year and has played in only 26 games — and he hasn’t played in as many as 90 games since 2011 — but he still may intrigue a contender looking for some right-handed pop.

    All those teams looking for a sub-.650 OPS left fielder, come on down.

    Someone need a rival pitcher knocked out for a few weeks? Well then, Quentin is your huckleberry.

      Is “enforcer” a position in baseball like it is in hockey?

    Are there really teams not getting enough production from the DL that would be interested in Quentin?

    Wow, I literally forgot this guy existed.

      San Diegans wish they could. Josh Byrnes man crush from Dbacks is what he wanted and went out and got. Give you Quentin for that last bag of shag balls in the dugout. And SD still would be getting the better deal.

    The real shock here is that he has a no trade clause to begin with.

    Leave it to the Pathetic Padres to sign an injury-prone, awful, one-dimensional player on his best day to a three year/27 million dollar contract.

    Just brutal….

      Aren’t you a Dodgers fan?

    Who would want him? He makes too much and is always hurt with something.

    Uggla for Quentin straight up. When Quentin plays Heyward shifts to center and BJ takes a seat on the bench.
