CARLOS QUENTIN RUMORS

Braves designate Carlos Quentin for assignment, call up Brandon Cunniff

The Atlanta Braves have taken the spot vacated from the trade of closer Craig Kimbrel and given it to minor leaguer Brandon Cunniff. Cunniff, a right hander, will pitch out of middle relief. Last season the 26-year-old spent time split between Single-A Lynchburg and Double-A Mississippi compiling a 1.59 ERA across 42 games. He had a 71/27 K/BB ratio. One player acquired in the Kimbrel...

(*Author’s Edit and Note as of 10:15pm – “Completes” may be assuming too much As of this writing there’s a little less than 15-hours until first pitch against the Dodgers… with Preller’s work-ethic, he may not even be done trading!) ‘Twas the night before Opening Day… The San Diego Padres announced Sunday afternoon that the team has acquired RHP Craig Kimbrel and...

Does Carlos Quentin make sense for the Angels?

San Diego Padres: Carlos Quentin’s new home

Carlos Quentin San Diego Padres manager Bud Black and General Manager A.J. Preller each brought up the possibility this week of outfielder/walking corpse Carlos Quentin potentially getting some reps at first base in an effort to get his bat in the lineup. This all feels like a massive farce and a way for the Padres to showcase Quentin’s bat for the rest of the league. I’ve long...

Padres Injury Update: Carlos Quentin, Yonder Alonso

Despite having the third best team ERA in the Major Leagues, the San Diego Padres are 65-71 on the season, third in the National League West. A big reason is a woeful offense that is 30th in runs scored. Part of the is due to injuries to key players such as Carlos Quentin and Yonder Alonso, who have both been transferred to the 60-day DL and are likely out for the rest of the season...
