MLB Injury News:
Padres left fielder Carlos Quentin left Tuesday's game against the Reds after "tweaking his right knee," according to the team, specifically San Diego manager Bud Black.
#Padres Carlos Quentin left the game after 'tweaking his right knee.' Listed as day to day. It was the left knee that troubled him Monday.
— Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) July 31, 2013
Quentin was hitless in his only two plate appearances Tuesday at Petco Park before he was replaced in left field by Jesus Guzman prior to the sixth inning. He did not play on Wednesday. Now he'll get two full days of rest with Thursday's off-day before the team opens a three-game series Friday against the Yankees at home.
He felt some discomfort in his knee late in Sunday's victory over the D-backs in Phoenix and then didn't appear in Monday's victory over the Reds.
"The knee was tweaked in Arizona, he didn't play Monday and took another swing today that lit it up," Black said. "Hopefully, he'll be back in the lineup on Friday."
Quentin had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last October right after the end of the regular season. His participation in Spring Training was slowed after the surgery, and he appeared in only four games and had 14 at-bats.
After hitting hit .239 in April and .191 in May, Quintin adjusted his stance, standing more upright in order to take stress off his knees. He then hit .366 in June before continuing his productivity this month.
Quentin entered Tuesday's game with four home runs and a team-best 20 RBIs in July.

Hitter of the month:
LF – Carlos Quentin
July totals: 286/340/516 – 4 HR, 9 2B, 20 RBI
The team may have fallen out of contention in July, but it was not the fault of its clean-up hitter. The oft-injured left fielder turned in one of the more solid months in his Padres career, posting 6 multi-RBI games and collecting 13 extra-base hits. Perhaps even more positive is the...

Cedeño is set to appear in Saturday night’s game with the Storm against the Inland Empire 66ers tonight in Lake Elsinore, according to MLB.com’s...

Kennedy was obtained by the Padres from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. The Padres were off Thursday and opened a three-game series against the Yankees on Friday night.
Kennedy's first start with the Padres will be Sunday against the Yankees, who took him in...

Cashner beat the Yankees with his arm legs and glove.
The right-hander held New York to seven hits and no walks scored from first on an Everth Cabrera triple and made...
The San Diego Padres have signed shortstop Ronny Cedeno to a minor league contract in case All-Star Everth Cabrera is suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball as part of its investigation of the Biogenesis drug clinic.
Cedeno is scheduled to be in the lineup for Double-A Lake Elsinore on Saturday night.
Both general manager Josh Byrnes and manager Bud Black confirm the move...
How about out Padres?!?! Envision me as a younger, tanner, Jimmie Johnson with more pliable hair as I shout this in my home rather than a locker room. Kind of sad I know but that won’t shake the happiness our Friars brought me the earlier part of this week.
Our Padres won their third straight series, this time against a very formidable opponent in the Cincinnati Reds. So here...
Everth Cabrera, facing a 50-game suspension in baseball's latest drug scandal, tied his career high with four hits and Logan Forsythe hit one of San Diego's three solo homers to lead the Padres to a 7-2 victory over CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees on Friday night.
Cabrera, the Padres' All-Star shortstop, is among 14 players facing discipline. Monday appears to be...

Welcome to San Diego. I can’t speak for all Padres fans but I’m pretty excited that you’re here. It’s not often that a team falls out of contention yet still adds a dynamic player to the roster at the trade deadline. Your presence will definitely make the remainder of 2013 more palatable and should serve to give the downtrodden fans of San Diego some sense of optimism...
Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres lost 4-1 yesterday. Eric Stults did not look particularly good. Homer Bailey did, however.
The Padres are off today, then welcome the New York Yankees to Petco Park for the first time ever. As of right now, Andrew Cashner faces...
Well as predicted last night, the Padres broadcast (Dick Enberg) would not shut up about how great the Yankees are. The good news is that your lowly Padres were able to beat the Evil Empire in very convincing fashion. It’s always fun to show up a team that is supposedly better than you are. It’s even more fun to do it when there is a sellout crowd watching, and since it’s New...
Cameron Maybin made his first rehab start for the T-Pads and homered to straight away center.
