Padres Discussing Deal With Heath Bell

According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres are discussing a multiyear contract extension for setup man Heath Bell.  Bell hopes for a three-year deal. 

Krasovic says the Padres control Bell’s rights for four more seasons, though by my count it’s three.  He’s arbitration-eligible for the first time after this season.  Manny Corpas will receive $12.25MM for his three arb seasons, though the third is a club option.
