      Twins' Carlos Quentin: Signs minor league deal with Twins

      Quentin signed a minor league deal with the Twins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Quentin spent brief stints with the Mariners and Braves organizations early last season before announcing his retirement in May, but he'll return to the game in hopes of cracking the Twins Opening Day roster as a DH option off the bench. The 33-year-old hit just .177 in his last taste of Major League action back in 2014, but he slashed .275/.363/.493 for the Padres just three seasons ago. Quentin is somewhat of a longshot to make the 25-man roster, and he'd likely return to retirement rather than toil in Triple-A, should he fail to make the cut.

      Veteran outfielder Carlos Quentin is set to retire, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

In five games with Triple-A Tacoma, he is batting .176 (3 for 17) with one double and one RBI. The 32-year-old outfielder has had an injury-plagued major-league career. He was a two-time All-Star, but he never played more than 131 games in a season. In nine years in the majors, he totaled a .252/.347/.484/.831 slash line.

      Padres' Carlos Quentin making progress at first base

      Padres new first baseman Carlos Quentin is continuing to make progress as he adjusts to his new position this spring, reports U-T San Diego. "It takes time for anybody to comfortable at the major league level, the highest level of baseball, to switch positions. That's tough. But he continues to work on it," said manager Bud Black. "It doesn't happen overnight. But he's putting the time in. He's doing a nice job with all the little intricacies of first base."

      Padres' Carlos Quentin adjusting to 1B

      Longtime outfielder Carlos Quentin is playing first base for the first time in his career with the Padres and adjusting to the focus and speed the position demands, per MLB.com. Quentin has played 1,243 games, but none in the regular season at first. He's just played once at first this spring, but he hopes adding that position to his repertoire will give the Padres more options. "The game is very fast in the infield, obviously," Quentin said. "The game speeds up, and it's a little bit more mentally draining."

      Padres' Carlos Quentin willing to waive no-trade clause for AL team

      Although the Padres have decided to work outfielder Carlos Quentin at first base this spring to potentially find another way to get his bat into the lineup, Quentin said Tuesday he would be willing to waive his no-trade for an AL team, per U-T San Diego. "There will be a lot of eyes seeing how well I'm doing, and I'll be open to the opportunity to be moved, if that comes about in spring training," Quentin said. "My main goal is to have a successful year and be in a position to be successful. I feel good now. You can't count on your health throughout a long season, and everyone knows the AL has the DH that would allow me to get at-bats without putting the wear and tear on my body. That's the realistic part of it, and I'm well aware of it." The oft-injured Quentin has never played more than 131 games in a season and has played less than 100 games in each of his three seasons with San Diego. He was a two-time All-Star (2008, 2011) when he played in the AL with the White Sox. Quentin is in the final guaranteed year of his contract. He has a $10 million mutual option for 2016, which includes a $3 million buyout. However, he must have played 320 games from 2013-15 for the buyout to go into effect, per Baseball-Reference.com.
