There were quite a few people calling for Carlos Quentin to receive a lengthy suspension after charging the mound and breaking Zack Greinke‘s collarbone. He ended up getting “only” eight games, but what’s happened may actually be worse for the Padres: Quentin has played, but terribly.
Since the Greinke incident on April 21 he’s hit .149 in 15 games, striking out 14 times in 55 plate appearances while posting a .547 OPS (and getting plunked twice). None of which means anything, of course, but it’s a little bit interesting considering the “eye-for-an-eye” cries coming from a certain segment of Dodgers fans.
In addition to serving the eight-game suspension Quentin also missed some time with knee problems. Greinke, meanwhile, is slated to rejoin the Dodgers’ rotation next week.
