Padres Get All-Star Carlos Quentin from White Sox for Prospects

Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) -- The San Diego Padres acquired All-Star outfielder Carlos Quentin from the Chicago White Sox for two minor-league pitchers, the Major League Baseball teams said on their websites.

Quentin, 29, hit .254 with 24 home runs and 77 runs batted in last season. The two-time All-Star has a .252 average with 121 homers and 383 RBI in six seasons with Arizona and Chicago.

The White Sox receive right-hander Simon Castro and left-hander Pedro Hernandez.

Castro, 23, went 7-8 with a 5.63 earned run average at Double-A and Triple-A last season. Hernandez, 22, was 10-3 with a 3.49 ERA over three levels of San Diego’s minor-league system in 2011.
