Carlos Quentin Tweaks Groin, Listed As Day-To-Day

 

Carlos Quentin has four hits in twelve at-bats since returning from the DL on May 13th.  He hit his first home run of the season on Saturday and got a hit in his first at-bat today.  The Padres are 3-3 with Quentin in the lineup, and his bat is invaluable moving forward.  Hopefully, his groin injury is a minor blip in an otherwise successful season for the Padres slugger.

According to Dennis Lin of the U~T San Diego, Quentin injured his groin running from first-to-third in the first inning as well as attempting to beat out a triple play in the third inning against the Colorado Rockies:

 

By all indications, Quentin and the Padres are taking precautionary measures to ensure the left fielder is healthy long term:

 

The Padres’ lineup is a work in progress, and Quentin provides much needed run support.  With an off day tomorrow, expect him to be back on Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins.
