|2015 Regular Season|
The move involving Quinten came hours before the Braves' season opener Monday at Miami. On Sunday, they traded Kimbrel and outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. in a deal that sent Quinten, outfielder Cameron Maybin, two minor leaguers and a draft pick to Atlanta.
The Padres had a glut of outfielders after Preller obtained Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Wil Myers in separate deals in December. Quentin, due $8 million this year, has been slowed by knee injuries and never played more than 86 games in any of his three seasons with his hometown Padres.
