The San Diego Padres have agreed to a five-year contract extension with outfielder Cameron Maybin. The deal, worth $25M, buys out Maybin's three arbitration-eligible years (2013, 2014, 2015), and his first year of free agency (2016), with a club option for 2017. According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Maybin had requested a no-trade clause, but the Padres -- who have a club policy against no-trade clauses -- declined.
Maybin, 24, hit .264/.323/.393 in 137 games with the Padres last year, after being acquired from the Marlins in exchange for Edward Mujica and Ryan Webb.
