The deal also includes a club option for 2017. The Padres raised some eyebrows over the offseason when they traded Luke Gregerson for Smith, but the outfielder has been the team's best hitter with a .281/.384/.506 batting line and nine homers over 72 games. They'd probably be better of trading him than extending him, but at least the extension didn't cost them too much.
Padres signed OF Seth Smith to a two-year, $13 million contract extension.
