Yorvit Torrealba has declined the $3.5 million mutual option with the Padres for 2011, San Diego general manager Jed Hoyer told the San Diego Union-Tribune .
Torrealba, 31, hit .271/.343/.378 with seven home runs and 37 RBI for the Padres last season, his first in San Diego after four seasons in Colorado. Torrealba made $750,000 last season and is due a $500,000 buyout for his option.
The Padres also have a mutual option with starter Jon Garland, who has until Wednesday to notify the Padres of his $6.75 million option. The Padres then have until Friday to make their decision. Garland gets $600,000 if the club declines, $300,000 if he declines.
