Padres, Denorfia Agree To Extension

The Padres have agreed to a contract extension with outfielder Chris Denorfia that will keep him in San Diego through 2014, according to Corey Brock of MLB.com (via Twitter).  The Pro Star Management client will earn $2MM in 2013 and $2.25 in '14, Brock tweets

We are excited to extend Chris to a two-year contract through 2014,” said General Manager Josh Byrnes. “He has proven to be a valuable and versatile player for us over the last three seasons, and his style of play is infectious.

Denorfia's deal will cover his final year of arbitration eligibility as well as his first free agent season.  The 32-year-old has a .279/.340/.419 slash line across three seasons with the Padres.  Denorfia has experience at all three outfield positions but has primarily played the corners since 2011.

This season, Denorfia is earning $1.165MM after avoiding arbitration with the Padres in December.  Byrnes reportedly received a good amount of trade interest in the outfielder prior to this year's deadline but opted to hold on to him.
