Quentin slated to see game action in Minors
NEW YORK -- Outfielder Carlos Quentin is headed out on a Minor League rehabilitation assignment -- again.

Quentin, who earlier this month had a setback in his recovery from March surgery on his right knee, will play for Class A Lake Elsinore on Friday, Padres manager Bud Black said.

Quentin, who had arthroscopic surgery on his knee on March 19, experienced soreness in his knee the week of May 7, saying that he felt pain when he got into his hitting stance. Quentin returned to San Diego to be examined.

This week, Quentin appeared in three games in extended spring action, playing in the field twice and serving as the designated hitter once.

"Now he feels good in his stance, and we think the time off gave him what he needed," Black said. "It's very encouraging how he's feeling right now."

To date, Quentin has played in seven Minor League games, hitting .286. He last appeared in a game on May 10.

Black said there's no timeline as to how many games or at-bats Quentin will have in Lake Elsinore.
