The San Diego Padres seem to have ruled out trading outfielder Seth Smith after signing him to two-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Smith’s availability had some contenders contacting the Padres but the team instead have given him a two-year deal worth $13 million. Additionally there is a $7 million club option for 2017 which will guarantee Smith at-least a $250,000 buyout.

Acquired in the offseason from Oakland for pitcher Luke Gregerson, Smith has been the stalwart of the Padres offense producing a .281/.384/.506 batting line and nine homers over 72 games.
