Carlos Quentin Done For The Year, To Have Knee Surgery

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

Today the Padres made official what everyone already assumed: birthday boy Carlos Quentin will miss the rest of the season and eventually get some more knee surgery.

Quentin made it into 82 games this season, finishing with a .275/ .363/ .493 slash line after an atrocious start that saw him clawing for the Mendoza line for quite some time. He hit 13 homers, his lowest total since he hit 5 in 81 games for the 2007 Diamondbacks and his 21 doubles matched last year's total.

In 168 games with the Padres over the past two seasons, Quentin has hit 29 homers over 560 AB, and slashed .268/ .368/ .498, putting up an OPS+ of 145. Pretty good guy to have on your side half the time.

The Friars are still committed to Quentin for at least two more years. He's owed $9.5 million next year and eight million in 2015. There's a mutual option for ten million dollars for 2016, with a three million dollar buyout dependent on him playing 320 games from 2013-'15. That is not looking very likely.
