White Sox right fielder Carlos Quentin has a sprained shoulder joint and is out until Friday at the absolute earliest, according to Chicago-area reports. Using Quentin as a designated hitter won't help either, as the problem isn't throwing, it's actually swinging a bat.

"It hurts," Quentin admitted (Chicago Tribune). "I originally thought something was definitely broken. I just pray that it gets better quick."

So do the White Sox, in all likelihood. They are still very much in the AL Central race -- trailing the Tigers by five games -- and Quentin's one of the anchors of the batting order, especially with Alex Rios and Adam Dunn having such bad seasons.

Quentin, 28, is hitting .255 with 24 homers, 77 RBI and an .842 OPS. He made the All-Star team this season for the second time in his career.

this guy has all the talent - decent season, arguably very good season -- some days I think he could be a top 3 hitter in the AL but it's all just not quite there - maybe in 2012 he has the absolute monster season. Markakis in Baltimore similar thought about - you see the undeniable talent and think the guy could be a premier hitter/a cut above a very good hitter.
