Carlos Quentin Scratched With Sore Knee

Carlos Quentin, who hit two home runs in the first game of the series on Monday, was a late scratch from the lineup, per team vice president Scott Reifert:

Quentin scratched with sore knee. Day to day and likely to DH for a short while upon return.

Brett Ballantini of CSN Chicago reported that manager Ozzie Guillen was simply being careful:

Ozzie is being extra cautious with Quentin. He could play today, “but I don’t want to take any chances, gamble and he gets worse.”

In 16 career games against the Angels, Quentin has six home runs and 16 RBI, hitting .314 with a .419 on-base percentage and .706 slugging percentage.
