The Atlanta Braves have designated Quinten for assignment, a day after getting him in a big trade with the San Diego Padres.

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 San Diego Padres pulled off another blockbuster trade on the eve of opening day, acquiring All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel and outfielder Melvin Upton from the Atlanta Braves for outfielders Carlos Quentin and Cameron Maybin, plus two minor leaguers and a draft pick.

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.
