Carlos Quentin is set to retire, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.  The 32-year old has had quite the off-season, moving from the San Diego Padres to the Atlanta Braves and ending his career with the Seattle Mariners.

Quentin is most known for his four year stint in Chicago with the White Sox, where he sported a .257/.352/.505 with 107 HRs and 320 RBIs.

A long list of injuries including wrist and shoulder problems plagued Quentin throughout his career. After his days with the White Sox, Quentin was traded to the San Diego Padres where his injury history followed.

Right knee surgery limited Quentin to 218 games in three years during the San Diego Padres, hitting .251/.352/.464 with 33 HRs and 108 RBIs.

After the winter of A.J. Preller saw Justin Upton, Matt Kemp and Wil Myers brought in to play outfield, Quentin was on the outside looking in.

When spring camp was over, Quentin was traded to the Braves before they released him. He then signed with the Seattle Mariners and reported to their Triple-A team in Tacoma before leaving the team last night, citing that injuries have hindered his ability to play baseball. Quentin is owed $8 million, which will be payed by the Braves.
