SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres have acquired two-time All-Star outfielder Carlos Quentin from the Chicago White Sox in an attempt to bolster their anemic offense.

Quentin grew up in the San Diego area and was a two-time All-Star with the White Sox. He has four consecutive 20-homer seasons, including 36 in 2008.

The White Sox will receive minor league pitchers Simon Castro, a right-hander, and Pedro Hernandez, a left-hander.

A shoulder injury limited Quentin to just one game in the final month of 2011, but Padres general manager Josh Byrnes says the outfielder is healthy.

The deal was announced on Saturday.
