Padres Injury Update: Yonder Alonso, Carlos Quentin

By on 8/23/2014 08:15:00 PM

The San Diego Padres, who are currently last in the MLB in both runs scored and team batting average, learned today that two of their biggest bats are out to get second opinions on their injuries.
Dennis Lin is also reporting that Yonder Alonso appears headed for surgery, while Carlos Quentin is most likely headed for more time off.
While the offense has been bad even with these players in the lineup, the pitching has been all that has kept the Padres respectable this year.

Quentin has been healthy enough to play in 50 games this season.  In that time he has greatly struggled, batting .177 with just four home runs.

Alonso on the other hand, has played in just 86 games this season.  He has a .240 average with seven home runs and 27 RBIs.  After being a major piece of the deal that sent Mat Latos to Cincinnati, he has yet to become a star in San Diego.  In five season, he has only been able to play in 405 games, and the slugger has just 27 career home runs.
