Chicago White Sox Trade Rumors 2011: Carlos Quentin Could Be On San Diego Padres' List

According to Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chicago White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin is on the San Diego Padres' "list of possibilities" for an off-season trade. The 29-year old Quentin will have his salary determined under arbitration for the 2012 season, and has been a player mentioned in White Sox trade rumors for several years. The issue with Quentin, other than the poor defensive ratings he has posted over the course of his career and his history of injuries, has been that he is often very hard on himself and is prone to streaks and slumps at the plate. Here is what SB Nation's White Sox blog, South Side Soxhad to say about Quentin in 2010-11

Carlos Quentin- .254/.340/.499, 24 HR, 77 RBI- When he was in the lineup, Quentin provided some power that was missing when he was gone.  He missed the last month of the year though with a strained shoulder.  It is impossible to count on this guy for an entire season.  He did improve in the outfield this year and he did enjoy a trip to his 2nd All Star game.  Final Grade: B-

If White Sox GM Kenny Williams was to deal Quentin, it would be to knock some payroll off the books while also creating room for younger (and cheaper) outfielder Dayan ViciedoAccording to Bill Center, the only untouchables in the Padres' organization at this point are Cameron Maybin, Nick Hundley, Mat Latos and Anthony Rizzo.
