Out for some time with a sprained left shoulder, Carlos Quentin will not play for the White Sox again this season, manager Ozzie Guillen said on Friday.
After spraining the AC joint in his left shoulder while making a diving catch on Aug. 20, Quentin spent time on the 15-day disabled list. He came back for one game on Sept. 12, but hasn’t played since.
“Every time he [tries to play], it’s just sore and it gets worse and worse. I put him out there, and he went backward — maybe 10 more days,” Guillen said. “I don’t know why we have to take that chance. What’s he got to prove? Can he play in the big leagues? Yeah, he don’t have to prove anything.
“But he’s fine, it’s not like there’s something very serious about it. Just sore. He needs time to recover, and I don’t think we gave him enough time to do it.”
And Q! may very well be traded in the off-season.
