San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin played six innings at first base during a Cactus League game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, March 21. It was his third appearance at the position in a game this spring. Quentin has been practicing at first for the last few weeks in an attempt to increase his versatility.
Fantasy Tip: With Justin Upton, Matt Kemp and Wil Myers penciled in as San Diego's starting outfielders, it will be difficult for Quentin to find playing time this season, barring an injury or trade. He should not be on your draft radar.

San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (knee) has damage to the bone in his left knee, and he will head out for a second opinion on the injury next week in Los Angeles. "Right now, I'm just working to try to get that opportunity (to play against this season)," Quentin said Friday, Aug. 1. "But I'm not sure."
Fantasy Tip: The brittle Quentin has crushed fantasy owners for the past couple of seasons, as it seems like it is one injury after another. The bone bruise in his left knee is the same injury which forced him out of 39 games earlier this season. At this point, fantasy owners might want to just drop him and let him be someone else's problem.

The San Diego Padres have placed OF Carlos Quentin (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of left knee soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Jeff Francoeur could get most of the playing time in the outfield while Quentin is out of the lineup. He should be an option in NL-only leagues but probably does not have much value in deep mixed leagues. Chris Denorfia could also receive more playing time but there have been rumors that he likely will be traded.
