Found August 04, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The San Diego Padres were hoping outfielder Carlos Quentin could return to their lineup for Friday’s series opener against the New York Yankees. Instead, Quentin’s ailing knee has kept the slugger out of the first two games of the series, reports Corey Brock of MLB.com. Quentin has been experiencing discomfort in his knee since last Sunday. San Diego kept him out of Monday’s lineup, but he went on to start Tuesday’s game. He was unable to make it through the entire contest, as he was removed prior to the sixth inning. He’s yet to return, even though the Padres were hoping he’d be good to go for Friday’s opener after being sidelined Wednesday and using the off-day on Thursday to rest. After sitting out Friday, Quentin was able to participate in outfield workouts yesterday, and the Padres continue to maintain that a trip to the disabled list isn’t expected. Still, the longer Quentin is sidelined and continues to experience the discomfort, the more likely San Diego is to give him an extended period off to recover. Prior to his injury, Quentin was heating up at the plate. On the season he’s hitting .275/.363/.493 with 21 doubles and 13 home runs over 320 plate appearances. The Padres replaced him in the lineup last night with Logan Forsythe. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
