Short hops

• Outfielder Carlos Quentin, who officially landed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday when the team set its 25-man roster, will need more than the allotted time on the DL as he recovers from a bone bruise in his left knee, manager Bud Black said. Quentin's DL stint was retroactive to Tuesday, and he would have been eligible to be reinstated on April 8.

"The reality is he has some banged-up knees," Black said of Quentin, who has had three surgeries on his right knee since 2012. "He'll play when he's ready, and he'll play in some discomfort. But there's a motivation behind 'Q,' in that he wants to play."
