The San Diego Padres are nearing an agreement with outfielder Carlos Quentin, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. The deal is a three-year extension reportedly worth $27 million, and comes with a "very reachable" bonus that would bump it up to the $30 million mark.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the deal comes with a full no-trade clause:

Quentin, along with this teammate Chase Headley, has been a popular target of both trade speculation and some concrete rumors, and was tied to several clubs including the Cleveland Indians, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinnati Reds, and Miami Marlins.

Quentin, 29, is hitting .273/.389/.525 in forty games on the 2012 season, slightly up from his seven-year career marks of .253/.348/.492. In those seven seasons, he's produced nearly eight wins above replacement, with the bulk of that production coming from his five-WAR breakout year in 2008.
