Quentin rests knee during rehab assignment
SAN DIEGO -- The Padres gave outfielder and cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin another day to rest his knee on Tuesday, rather than having him continue a rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore.

Quentin was originally scheduled to play for Lake Elsinore on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"I think we're just going to give the knee another day," Padres manager Bud Black said.

Quentin said on Monday he was moving closer to returning to the Padres and he didn't rule out the team's road trip to Philadelphia later this week. Quentin checked in with the Padres on Monday at Petco Park after spending a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tucson.

Quentin went on the disabled list April 3 after undergoing right knee surgery.

Black said Tuesday's day off was simply rest for the left fielder. He's expected to play Wednesday with Lake Elsinore.

"Just one more day," Black said.
