Padres manager Bud Black said Monday that Carlos Quentin (knee) is "more than likely" done for the season.

Quentin recently received a second opinion on his bruised left knee, and while he wasn't advised to have surgery, he was prescribed some extended rest. "When you have a bone bruise, the only thing you can really do is rest," Black said. "And that's the course of action." Quentin played in a career-low 50 games this season and hasn't reached the 90-game plateau since 2011. He's under contract for $8 million in 2015.

Carlos Quentin will seek a second opinion next week on the damage to the bone in his left knee.

It's unclear at the moment when, or if, Quentin will be able to return to the Padres this season. He has certainly been no stranger to the disabled list in his career, and shouldn't be counted on at all from a fantasy standpoint.

Padres placed OF Carlos Quentin on the 15-day disabled list with soreness in his left knee.

Injuries have been the underlying theme throughout Quentin's career, and his tenure in San Diego has been no different. He has appeared in just 50 games this season, slashing .177/.284/.315 with four homers and 18 RBI.

Carlos Quentin (knee) is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

He was originally back in there after missing a start with a sore knee but wound up being a late scratch. Quentin was able to pinch-hit Saturday and presumably will again be available off the bench.
Jul 27 - 2:29 PM

Carlos Quentin struck out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Quentin exited Friday's contest with a sore knee. While pinch-hitting the next day suggests a stint on the disabled list will likely be avoided, it's not clear when he'll be ready to start again. Quentin is batting just .177/.284/.315 for the Padres this season.
Jul 27 - 4:12 AM

Carlos Quentin was removed from Friday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

It's unclear what exactly happened, but Quentin looked frustrated after striking out in his final at bat, and Will Venable entered the game defensively as a replacement for him. It's likely that he aggravated his recent left shoulder injury.
Jul 25 - 8:57 PM

Carlos Quentin doubled, singled and drove in three runs Friday against the Dodgers.

Quentin raised his average to .175 with the performance! He's still just 10-for-75 (.133) since the beginning of July, but if he can stay healthy for a while, he should begin to pick it up.
Jul 12 - 1:46 AM

Carlos Quentin went 2-for-4 with a double and two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

Quentin returned to the Padres' lineup Monday after missing three starts with a sore shoulder. This was his first round-tripper since June 16. It's been a slog for the veteran, who is slashing just .185/.287/.359 in 35 games. San Diego needs Quentin to get going. Seth Smith can't keep doing it alone.
Jul 2 - 1:20 AM

Carlos Quentin is back in the Padres' lineup Monday.

Quentin hadn't started since Friday because of soreness in his left shoulder, though he did make a pinch-hitting appearance over the weekend. The outfielder is hitting just .176/.290/.318 over 33 games for the Padres this season.
Jun 30 - 6:22 PM

Carlos Quentin (shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter Sunday in the Padres' win over the Diamondbacks.

Quentin has been out of the San Diego starting lineup since Friday because of soreness in his left shoulder. He is aiming to return on Monday night at Coors Field.
Jun 30 - 8:00 AM

Carlos Quentin (shoulder) was "feeling better" Saturday, according to Padres' manager Bud Black.

Quentin had to be scratched Friday because of a sore left shoulder and probably won't be available Saturday, but the 31-year-old is expected to avoid the disabled list.
Jun 28 - 7:30 PM

Carlos Quentin was scratched from Friday's lineup due to a sore shoulder.

He sustained the injury awkwardly diving for a ball in the outfield on Thursday. It doesn't appear to be serious, so expect him to return to the Padres lineup in a day or two.
Jun 27 - 8:01 PM

Carlos Quentin has been scratched from the Padres starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Diamondbacks.

No word yet has been given as to the reason for the late scratch, but the oft-injured outfielder has dealt with his share of ailments already this season. The team should provide an update on his status shortly, but it certainly wouldn't be surprising to see him forced back to the disabled list.
Jun 27 - 6:57 PM

Carlos Quentin flew out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Quentin missed a second straight start due to left knee soreness, but he's been able to pinch-hit in both games. He should be back in the lineup soon.
