Carlos Quentin returns from eight-game suspension tonight

Carlos Quentin’s eight-game suspension for charging the mound on Zack Greinke is over and the outfielder is expected to be in the Padres’ lineup tonight against the Brewers.

San Diego went 3-5 in Quentin’s absence, with Jesus Guzman, Kyle Blanks, and Mark Kotsay sharing time in left field and the only three wins coming against the Dodgers.

Tim Powers of MLB.com writes that the time off may have actually helped Quentin because he was dealing with knee soreness following offseason surgery and had begun the season in a slump. Something tells me Dodgers fans won’t love hearing that.
