Nursing sore wrist, Quentin out of lineup

Nursing sore wrist, Quentin out of lineup

SAN DIEGO -- Left fielder Carlos Quentin was out of the Padres starting lineup Wednesday after he was hit just above the right wrist with a pitch in Tuesday's victory over the Dodgers.

"He's still a little sore," said Padres manager Bud Black. "Medically, we're working him up. He's going through a number of tests, and we hope to get a better idea of where he's headed."

Quentin was hit by Dodgers pitcher Ronald Belisario in the seventh inning. He immediately clutched his wrist and motioned to the bench.

Quentin was examined on the field by team trainer Todd Hutcheson and Black. After a brief discussion, he then came out of the game. Quentin had an X-ray done after the game that didn't show any damage to the wrist area.

The outfielder wasn't available before Wednesday's game, as he was getting treatment on his wrist.

Black was asked if the injury would be enough to send Quentin to the disabled list.

"I don't think it's going to happen," Black said.

Quentin is hitting .250 this season in 16 at-bats, with three doubles, three walks and three RBIs in seven games.

Chris Denorfia got the start in left field in the second game of a three-game series against the Dodgers.
