Quentin 'ramping up' baseball activities

SAN FRANCISCO -- Outfielder Carlos Quentin, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee March 19, is with the team for the weekend to continue to push his knee through a series of baseball activities.

"Each and every day, he's ramping up his exertion level with baseball activities," Padres manager Bud Black said.

Quentin shagged balls in the outfield during pregame, hit during batting practice and did some baserunning.

"He's rapidly approaching a [Minor League] rehab assignment," Black said.
