Quentin sits again with shoulder injury

SAN DIEGO -- Padres left fielder Carlos Quentin missed his second straight game with a left shoulder injury. He hasn't been right since Friday, when he hurt himself on the follow through of a swing.

Quentin finished the game, but hasn't played since. The pain increased the following day, which prompted the Padres to hold him out.

The setback is ill timed. It interrupts a hot streak where Quentin was hitting .371 with two home runs and five RBIs in his last 10 games.

He was evaluated in depth on Sunday afternoon by Padres lead physician Heinz Hoenecke, and the Padres believe the injury won't keep their cleanup hitter out for long.

"Carlos is a little banged up and we're keeping an eye on it," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He's day to day. We're cautiously optimistic that he's going to be fine."
