A few weeks ago, my colleague Scott Miller reported that Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin might be done for the season due to his balky right knee. And now that has come to fruition, as Miller reports that Quentin is done for the season and needs surgery on his knee.

Both of Quentin's knee are chronically bad and the right one in particular has bothered him for most of the season.  He's received three lubricant injections in said knee during the season.

Quentin, 31, hit .275/.363/.493 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in 82 games this year. When he's able to remain in the lineup, he's a very productive player. That's the problem, though, as Quentin has only played in at least 100 games three times in his eight-year career. His career high in games played is 131.
