Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin has not appeared in a major league game since July 30 because of a right knee injury. And he won’t appear in his next major league game until sometime next season.
Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Southwest reports that Quentin has officially been shut down for the season and is scheduled to undergo surgery to clean up loose bodies in his ailing knee. He is under contract with the Friars through 2016 and should be ready for the beginning of spring training next February.
Quentin, 31, hit .275/.363/.493 with 13 home runs and 44 RBI in 82 games this season for San Diego. He has never played more than 131 games in a season in his eight-year major league career.
