Quentin update

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

NEW YORK - Injured outfielder Carlos Quentin was re-evaluated Wednesday afternoon at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, and the news was better than expected.
Quentin, who was an American League MVP candidate before he fractured his wrist on Sept. 1 when he tried to roughhouse his own bat after a foul ball, is expected to rejoin the team this weekend in Kansas City and actually start work in the batting cage.
According to the Sox, the fracture in the wrist lined up and the soft cast was removed. The plan was to get him already moving on his range of motion drills Wednesday and Thursday, and then fly to Kansas City on Friday. There he is scheduled to take dry swings and further test the wrist.
As far as him returning before the end of the season, that remains to be seen, but the Sox were pleased with his recovery so far.
They did warn, however, that if there are any setbacks they will likely shut him down.
