Carlos Quentin LF SD 4 Days

Quentin (knee) will work out at first base this spring, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.

Although Quentin has no experience at first base, it makes sense for the Padres to give him a look there, as the veteran is on his last legs as an outfielder. Long considered injury prone, Quentin hasn't reached 400 at-bats since 2011, and he no longer has a starting job in the San Diego outfield. Barring a trade to the American League, he'll likely be limited to a bench role, if his health even allows that.

Quentin (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Monday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Manager Bud Black acknowledged last week that Quentin likely wouldn't make hit back this season, but his move to the 60-day DL all but assures that he won't return in 2014. Quentin played in a career-low 50 games this season, hitting a dismal .177/.284/.315 across 155 plate appearances, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the Padres moved on in the offseason.

Carlos Quentin was removed from Friday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.
