Padres being careful with Quentin's knee
SAN FRANCISCO -- Outfielder Carlos Quentin, who Sunday signed a three-year contract extension for $27 million, wasn't in Monday's lineup against the Giants, though his manager vowed that he would be in the lineup Tuesday and Wednesday.

"When I look at [the schedule], I thought Carlos would play two of these three games," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He likes to play, but he understands the big picture. And with his knee, he won't play every single day."

Quentin had surgery on his right knee in Spring Training and missed the first 49 games of the season.

Black and Quentin have talked about the team's plan to give him sporadic rest based on a number of factors -- consecutive days he's played, certain pitching matchups, etc.

"We're going to monitor that moving forward," Black said.
