Carlos Quentin‘s eight-game suspension for charging the mound on Zack Greinke is over and the outfielder is expected to be in the Padres’ lineup tonight against the Brewers.

San Diego went 3-5 in Quentin’s absence, with Jesus Guzman, Kyle Blanks, and Mark Kotsay sharing time in left field and the only three wins coming against the Dodgers.

Tim Powers of MLB.com writes that the time off may have actually helped Quentin because he was dealing with knee soreness following offseason surgery and had begun the season in a slump. Something tells me Dodgers fans won’t love hearing that.

    Padres went 3-5 during Quentin’s suspension. Dodgers were 1-6 during that time. More at Dodger Thoughts.

    I hope that first pitch is thrown behind his back.

    Hopefully if Gallardo does hit Quentin tonight he doesn’t suggest they talk about it over drinks after the game….
