UPDATE: X-rays came back negative on the wrist, leaving Quentin day-to-day.
Quentin started towards first base after the plunking, but he made it only a few steps before calling the trainer out. One imagines the trainer would have come out to see him anyway, but he wanted assistance then and there, which wouldn’t seem to bode very well.
Despite missing big chunks of seasons with injuries, Quentin led his league in HBPs in both 2011 (23 in 118 games for the White Sox) and 2012 (17 in 86 games with the Padres). In just 709 major league games, he’s been hit by 115 pitches, which ranks tied for 36th all-time. On a per-plate appearance basis, he’s the most plunked player ever.
