No return date set out in any of the recent articles on him that I can see.... they're playing it cautious obviously...I'm guessing a week to 10 days though it could be sooner since he's eligible to come off the DL tomorrow.

Quentin bats
Right fielder Carlos Quentin (torn labrum) took early batting practice and said "everything's good."

"We're building up endurance," he said. "I'll be out there with these guys (today) and I'll keep doing that and see what they want to do when we get home. I'm pretty confident it'll go well."

It's possible Quentin could go on a minor league rehab assignment next week.

Looks like he won't be back for at least 10-14 days...

MLB.com:

PHOENIX -- Outfielder Carlos Quentin is just days away from appearing in some Minor League games, which would be his biggest step toward returning to the lineup.

Quentin was diagnosed with a partial tear of his left (non-throwing) labrum during Spring Training and began the year on the disabled list. He has progressed from hitting off a tee to taking soft toss, to live hitting and finally to hitting on the field during regular batting practice.

Quentin is scheduled to take batting practice on Tuesday before heading down to extended Spring Training in Tucson on Wednesday to take some swings in a camp game. He'll get Thursday off and then the team will reevaluate where things stand.

"Hopefully at the end of the homestand, maybe, we get him into some more games maybe [in] Tucson," manager Bob Melvin said.

The team's medical staff has worked with Quentin on strengthening the muscles around the labrum (in shoulder area), and they think that will help him avoid having to have surgery.

"It's looking pretty good for me getting some [Minor League] at-bats this week," Quentin said. "It feels good. It feels better than even before the injury because I had felt a little in there before."
