Quentin's return still up in the air

Carlos Quentin is jogging, and he was hitting in the outfield cage at rainy Wrigley Field on Tuesday with some of his other White Sox teammates. Manager Ozzie Guillen isn’t expecting to get Quentin back until after the all-star break _ roughly another month. GM Kenny Williams said there is no timetable for Quentin’s return, but he’s privately hoping the left fielder is back before mid-July. Quentin, meanwhile, is dealing with his second frustrating injury in less than year, and he’s still trying to come to grips with how something as nondescript as a tendon on the bottom of his left foot can be causing so much trouble. Completely rupturing the tendon remains the big concern, but Quentin is still trying to accelerate the rehab process and get back on the field. There is a lot of baseball left, and the Sox are still in the hunt despite their mediocre 30-34 record. A healthy Quentin in the second half of the season just might put the White Sox over the top. The frustration is obvious, but there’s no need to push too hard.
