Quentin to the DL, Wise is back

Quentin,%20Carlos%2017.jpgKANSAS CITY, Mo. - Carlos Quentin won't have to worry about sitting down on Monday with manager Ozzie Guillen and general manager Ken Williams to plead his case about returning to the starting lineup now.
The White Sox announced on Friday that the 2008 MVP candidate was placed on the 15-day disabled list [retroactive to May 26] with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Quentin was hitting .229 with eight homers in 38 games, but most of his display of power came in April, as he was obviously fighting the foot injury throughout the month of May.
Taking his spot on the roster - and doing so two weeks earlier than expected - will be outfielder Dewayne Wise, who was rehabbing his separated right shoulder in Class AAA Charlotte. Wise was the Opening Day leadoff hitter and starting center fielder, but when he started off slow, moved down in the order. He had just started to hit when he was injured, making a diving catch on April 13.
