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.
