by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/2015) 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.

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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) 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.
