According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Carlos Quentin may be open to waiving his no-trade clause.

Quentin received complete no-trade protection on the three-year, $27 million contract extension that he signed with the Padres in July 2012, allowing him to block a move to any team. But the Friars are buried in the National League West standings with a record of 30-42 and Quentin is believed to be open to joining a contender before the July 31 deadline. Heyman says "San Diego higher-ups haven't yet officially approached Quentin about the possibility of a trade."

The outfielder needs time off from time to time in order to protect his fragile body, and he hasn't been hitting much while manning the San Diego sod. Quentin is batting .212/.312/.379 with three round trips in 66 at-bats.
