Padres manager Bud Black says outfielder Carlos Quentin could begin the season on the disabled list, Dennis Lin of U-T San Diego reports. Quentin had surgery to remove loose bodies from his right knee last September, but it is his other knee that is bothering him now. The outfielder recently said he has been suffering from soreness in his left knee.

That Quentin is less than 100 percent shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as he played in just 86 games in 2012 and 82 games last season. Even dating back to 2009, a five-year span, he has averaged only 103 games per season. When he has been healthy, he has been a productive hitter for the Padres, posting an .866 OPS in his two seasons with them.

    This really isn’t a headline. A headline would be Quentin could start the season on the active roster

      Dang it all, you mean the voodoo hex I placed upon him last year for injuring Greinke is still active? Didn’t mean for it to extend another year. My bad.
      Think I’ll move on to someone else…. Get your health insurance ready Tom “Pretty Boy” Brady!

    Can’t wait for Greinke to buzz this D-bag again, just get behind Gonzo before get tackled this year.

      So basically you want Greinke to throw into the Padres dugout, because that’s where Quentin’s gonna be. At that point, both you and Greinke have worse problems than angering Carlos Quentin.

      Then again, it would be pretty amazing if Greinke can throw a wild pitch into the Padres dugout, bounce it down the hallway to the trainers’ room, and still buzz Quentin as he’s rehabbing.

    He makes a nice paperweight. Nice signing Byrnes! They still owe him thru 2016.

    He needs to find the doctor who brought Sizemore back from the dead.
