UPDATE:

Carlos Quentin has signed a three-year, $27-million extension with the Padres, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

The deal also includes a mutual option for 2016 for the San Diego outfielder.

The Padres' move to sign Quentin is something of a surprise, as he was seen as a prime trade candidate this month. The signing is a big step for the Padres, a low-revenue team that's long been unable to sign stars to multiyear deals due to finances.

So, the updates are done and Quentin is staying in his hometown.

Analysis: This is a great move for the Padres as they have someone who will provide veteran leadership in the clubhouse.

As we approach the MLB trade deadline, one of the hottest names on the market is San Diego outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Known as one of the better power-hitting outfielders in the National League, Quentin is currently in a funk at Petco Park, which isn't exactly hitter-friendly.

But history has shown that Quentin does have power, as he's hit 107 home runs over the last four seasons.

So, where does he go?

That's where Bleacher Report and I come in.

No longer will you need to search out multiple sites to find the latest and greatest rumor. It will all be here.

So, here's a look at the latest rumors on Quentin.

 

Note: This will no longer be updated as Quentin is staying.
