Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin hasn't played since July 26 because of a sore left knee, and now it appears that he'll miss the remainder of 2014. Here are manager Bud Black's recent comments via Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune ...

“It's looking more and more that his season might be over.

...

“When you have a bone bruise, the only thing you can really do is rest. That's the course of action.”

Quentin this season is batting .177/.284/.315 in 50 games. For his career, he owns an OPS+ of 120 across parts of nine big-league seasons. As ever, though, the problem is injuries, as Quentin has missed more than 350 games due to injury over the course of his career.

Quentin is signed through next season, and his contract also includes a $10-million mutual option for 2016.
