|Carlos Quentin headed to Arizona to continue rehab |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/20/14) Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin (knee) will continue his rehab when he travels to the team's spring facility in Arizona at the end of the week, per MLB.com.
"I think he's going to go on Thursday or Friday," manager Bud Black said, per MLB.com. "He's going to start doing baseball activities over there. He'll go out and practice with that group and do on-the-field drills, batting practice. We have our trainers and therapists over there."
Quentin will need a rehab assignment before joining the major-league roster.
"Probably at some point over there he might even get in some games, maybe DH to get some at-bats there," Black said. "When he goes through that process, then he'll go out on a rehabilitation assignment."
|Carlos Quentin will move to extended spring next |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/18/14) Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin is not yet ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, but he is making progress in his recovery from a knee injury otherwise. According to MLB.com, Quentin will head to the team's facility in Arizona for extended spring training work, the final step before he moves on to playing in minor-league games.
|Carlos Quentin still not ready for rehab to begin |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/16/14) Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin continues to work his way back from a bone bruise on his knee, but his progress has apparently been slower than expected. MLB.com reports Wednesday Quentin is still likely at least a week away from beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, and there is "no chance" he will be ready by this weekend, as hoped.
|Carlos Quentin takes batting practice on field Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/14/14) Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin took batting practice on the field Monday for the first time since hitting the disabled list with a bone bruise in his knee, MLB.com reports.
"It's a good first step for him," manager Bud Black said. "When this happens, then it's a good sign for Carlos and the club."
Quentin still needs to run on the healing knee and increase the intensity of his workouts before Black will schedule a rehab assignment for him. He may be a week or more from that stage of his recovery.
|Carlos Quentin could start on-field hitting as early as Tuesday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Padres manager Bud Black hinted that outfielder Carlos Quentin could start on-field hitting as soon as Tuesday, U-T San Diego reports Saturday. Quentin has been limited to running on an anti-gravity treadmill and hitting in the cage.
"It probably won't be the 13th (Sunday) or 14th (Monday), but after that, might have some action," Black said.
|Durability issues once again plagued Carlos Quentin in 2013, particularly his balky right knee. Quentin, who has never played more than 131 games in a season, played less than 100 games for a second straight season last year. He missed the final two months as he had another setback with his right knee. Quentin had his third surgery since 2012 on the knee in early September, but is optimistic about having a productive 2014 since he said he feels "a lot better about this surgery than the first two." Only time will tell. Quentin can be a streaky hitter, but when he's on top of his game, he can really rake. He has a career .492 slugging percentage and .842 OPS in eight MLB seasons. Not only can Quentin hit for power, but he shows patience at the plate and doesn't post ridiculous strikeout totals for being a power hitter. It's just his durability issues hinder his Fantasy appeal. Quentin is more of an injury-risk sleeper for the later rounds.
