In his sixth season as a big-leaguer, Carlos Quentin went deep for the 100th time. It’s a nice milestone for the 28-year-old Right Fielder, even though it came in a loss to the Angels. It’s been a fantastic start for Quentin, whose OPS sits at .970 after winning week one’s AL Player of the week honors. The White Sox certainly hope that trend will continue.
After tearing the league apart in 2008 (.288/.394/.571) Quentin has struggled to return to dominance at the plate. Injuries have been part of the issue for the slugger, who has never played more than 131 Games in any one season. If he manages to stay off the DL, it appears Quentin could return to his form of three years ago, while providing excellent protection for Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko.
