• Black said outfielder Carlos Quentin (left knee bone bruise) will continue to do baseball workouts in Arizona until flying back to San Diego on Thursday night and preparing with the team at Petco Park on Friday night. If all goes well, he could join righty Casey Kelly (Tommy John surgery) at Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore for a rehab assignment this weekend.
"It's a good possibility they could play together," Black said. "Whether they carpool or caravan, I'm going to leave it up to those two guys. They're grown men. 'Q' does have a Tesla. I think he should use it and Casey should get in there with him."
• Catcher Nick Hundley may have a .324/.324/.500 slash line in 34 at-bats this year, but the Padres are 0-6 on days when he starts. Hundley's catcher ERA (5.10) is also noticeably higher than that of Rene Rivera (2.48) and Yasmani Grandal (3.00).
