Padres general manager A.J. Preller confirmed Tuesday that Carlos Quentin could see playing time at first base.

It makes sense given the Padres' logjam in the outfield and Quentin's injury history. Yonder Alonso is still at the top of the depth chart at first base, but the situation is worth watching.

Padres activated OF Carlos Quentin from the 60-day disabled list.

Quentin appeared in just 50 games in 2014 due to another knee injury and wasn't effective when healthy, batting .177/.284/.315 in 155 plate appearances. The 32-year-old outfielder is owed $8 million in 2015. He has a $10 million mutual option for 2016.

Padres transferred OF Carlos Quentin from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Quentin is done for the year with a bone bruise in his left knee. He played in just 50 games in 2014.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Jul 2, 2014 01:20:00 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.

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.
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 08:00:00 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.
