Fantasy Impact: Quentin, 34, has been given one last shot by signing with the Boston Red Sox. Carlos last played in 2014 and hit .177 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 50 games. Quentin is off the fantasy radar considering his chronic knee issues and lack of at-bats.

Carlos Quentin has been released by the Twins. The 33-year-old veteran outfielder batted a decent .250 this Spring with two homers and seven R.B.I., but the Twins decided to hold on to both Oswaldo Arcia and Danny Santana for reserve outfield roles to start the season.

Fantasy Impact: Carlos Quentin has no fantasy value at this time.

Fantasy Impact: The deal has an opt-out date of May 12th if Quentin does not get called up, per Jon Heyman of CBSSports. It's a deal that provides little risk to the Mariners, but if Quentin could show flashes of his play from 2008-11 when he was with the White Sox, averaging 27 HR and 80 RBI, it could provide depth to their roster. His fantasy impact will be minimal, if he does get called up, he'll be strictly platooning DH, maybe 1B against lefties. Monitor his progress going forward.

Quentin was included in the mega-deal with the Padres yesterday.

Fantasy Impact: Quentin is better suited as a DH in the American League. He is free to pursue those opportunities.

San Diego Padres make one more major move before finalizing their 25-man roster. The Padres send outfielders Carlos Quentin, Cameron Maybin and Jordan Paroubeck and the 41st pick of the June's draft along with pitcher Matt Wisley to the Atlanta Braves for All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel and outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Craig Kimbrel finished the 2014 season with a 1.61 ERA and 47 saves. Kimbrel will be the most solid closer the Padres have had since Trevor Hoffman. With the offense much improved expect much more save opportunities for Kimbrel.

The Atlanta Braves reportedly will receive Carlos Quentin, Cameron Maybin and a draft pick in a trade that sends RP Craig Kimbrel and OF Melvin Upton Jr. to the Padres. (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: The outfield depth in San Diego was going to limit Quentin's playing time, but this trade should give him a slight boost. Even with a boost, he's still not worth owning in fantasy leagues.

Batting DH, Carlos Quentin went 1-4 with a home run against the Giants in Tuesday's Cactus League game.

Fantasy Impact: It is no secret that the Padres are shopping Carlos Quentin. Their current roster would see him join Will Venable & Cameron Maybin on the bench. It is likely that one of them will be traded before the end of spring training.
