Quentin, who had offseason surgery on the same knee, tested the knee recently with some physical activity and then went for a second opinion after complaining of soreness.
All of which means he’s no sure thing to play again this season, especially with the Padres not in contention. When healthy enough to be in the lineup Quentin has hit .275 with an .855 OPS to basically match the production from last year that got him a three-year, $27 million contract extension, but he’s played just 82 games after playing just 86 games last season.
Quentin always hits and he’s always injured, which is why the multi-year deal was a risky one for the Padres.
