Carlos Quentin’s season likely over

Man, this guy’s career makes me want to cry.

Carlos Quentin’s ailing left knee won’t require surgery. It will, however, likely sideline the Padres’ beleaguered left fielder the rest of the year.

A second opinion on the bone bruise reiterated that rest is the best course of action to heal an injury that Quentin sustained while diving for a ball in spring training. The 31-year-old outfielder missed 39 games to start the year and has been limited to 50 games in his third season in this injury-plagued tenure in San Diego…

Since the Padres acquired him before the start of the 2012 season for two minor league pitchers, he has had three surgeries on his right knee. Along the way, Quentin has played in just 218 games for the Padres, has never hit more than 16 homers and hasn’t driven in more than 46. He landed on the disabled list with left knee soreness for a second time this year in late July while sitting on a .177 average, four homers and 18 RBIs.

By the time this season ends, the Padres will have paid him $26 million.

They are also on the hook for another $8 million in 2015 for the final year of a three-year, $27 million extension…
