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. Follow JDC on Twitter @6JDC9!
