Quentin's rehab progress slowed
SAN DIEGO -- Padres outfielder and cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin has been slowed in his rehabilitation for his knee injury, manager Bud Black said. Quentin is not currently playing in rehab games and he received a cortisone shot for his right knee on Tuesday.

After waiting 48 hours after the cortisone shot was administered, Quentin could resume baseball activities Thursday and Friday, Black said. The Padres will then reevaluate his schedule for playing in games.

"He will play. I'm not sure when," Black said. "He will play when he's able to play. After Friday night's game, we might have more of a clear picture of where his rehab might be headed."

Quentin last played in a game on May 10 in a rehab outing with High Class A Lake Elsinore. He has been on the disabled list the entire season after undergoing right knee surgery on March 19.

"I think he's got a little bit of soreness. I think there has been some inflammation, so I think the cortisone injection helps both those conditions," Black said. "He's anxious. He's champing at the bit to play. He's a very competitive guy. He wants to get out there."
