    Padres, Denorfia agree to two-year 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 club has confirmed the news via press release.

    “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 was set to enter his final year of arbitration eligibility and would have been a free agent following the 2013 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.

    I'd take Denorfia over Stubbs/Heisey today. Although his relative esteem around here made way for Chuck Norris style jokes, a lot of us saw a nice player in him.
    His problem was (and has been) durability. It was shame he was traded away for a RP who provided absolutely no value to the major league club.
