Quentin among Padres' injury updates
SAN DIEGO -- Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin is expected to return to San Diego on Monday from his rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Tucson to check in with the Padres, manager Bud Black said.

Quentin will then join Class A Lake Elsinore for more rehabilitation instead of accompanying Tucson on its trip to New Orleans, Black said. Quentin will play a couple of games with Lake Elsinore, but Black didn't specify when Quentin might finish his rehab.

The outfielder went on the disabled list on April 3 after undergoing right knee surgery. His status was one of several injury updates that Black provided on Sunday morning.

Starting pitcher Cory Luebke will likely seek a second opinion on his elbow injury in a couple of days. Luebke went on the DL on Wednesday, retroactive to April 28, for a strained left elbow.

Starting pitcher Tim Stauffer is expected to make a third rehab start on Wednesday, either with Lake Elsinore or Tucson, but more likely with Lake Elsinore, which will be playing at home, Black said. It could be Stauffer's final rehab outing. He went on the DL on April 5, retroactive to April 4, for a strained right elbow.

Outfielder Jeremy Hermida will join the Padres for their trip this week to Philadelphia and will see a specialist for his strained left adductor.

Minor League starting pitcher Casey Kelly is growing closer to playing catch at Tucson after resting his elbow.
