After spending the first six weeks of the season on the disabled list with a knee injury Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin is expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday, according to Darren Smith of 1090-AM radio in San Diego.
Smith reports that Quentin is traveling with the Padres to Cincinnati, where they begin a three-game series against the Reds tomorrow night. Quentin has gone just 3-for-18 on a minor-league rehab assignment, so he may still be working off some rust.
Quentin has been tremendously productive for the Padres, hitting .268 with an .866 OPS despite calling pitcher’s haven Petco Park home, but he’s been healthy enough to play just 168 of a possible 363 games in two-plus seasons. San Diego has plenty of outfield depth right–including Seth Smith, Will Venable, Chris Denorfia, and Cameron Maybin–so it could make sense to limit Quentin’s workload for a while at least.
