Quentin out until All-Star break?

Nothing was made official regarding the injured White Sox left fielder, aside from the fact that Carlos Quentin was eligible to come off the disabled list on Wednesday but was not exactly close to returning.

Quentin has been out of action since hearing a pop in his left foot while running out a double in the first inning of a game in Anaheim on May 25. The pop signified the tendon tearing, which usually is a good sign in the healing process for plantar fasciitis. But having just started jogging again this week, Quentin isn’t expected back any time soon.

The left fielder said his goal is to be back by the All-Star break. Manager Ozzie Guillen is not counting on him until at least that point.

 “Nope. I want to be optimistic, more than anybody, but the process and the progress is going right now, you have to be honest with yourself,” Guillen said. “I got to be honest with you guys. If Carlos is back before the All-Star break, it’s a blessing. We’ll be lucky.”

General manager Ken Williams said that diagnosis from Guillen might be a bit extreme, with no timetable set for Quentin. The plan is to ease him back into action once he fights through the initial soreness.
