According to the San Diego Padres, who tweeted the announcement, the Padres have acquired right field Carlos Quentin from the Chicago White Sox. The Padres give up Pedro Hernandez and Simon Castro in the deal.

Quentin had been on the trade market for some time and is a good upgrade for the Padres, who always seem to need more bats in their lineup. He is projected to be their starting right fielder. Quentin is no stranger to the National League West, as he is a former Arizona Diamondback.

Meanwhile, Castro pitched in 22 games between Triple A and Double A last season, in Tucson and San Antonio, to pitch to a 5.63 earned run average. He started all of those games. Hernandez pitched in 28 games, starting 18 of them, between three levels. Triple A Tucson, Double a San Antonio and A+ Lake Elisnore. He had an Earned Run Average of 3.49. Both of them are expected to start the season in Triple A Charlotte.
