NEW YORK ( -- White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin received some bad news from an MRI on his right forearm and wrist, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The injuries have kept Quentin, one of the AL's leading MVP candidates, out of the lineup since Monday.

There was no word on how long Quentin might be out. The White Sox currently hold a 1 1/2 game lead on the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central. Quentin has been a huge part of Chicago's success, batting .288 with 36 home runs, 100 RBI and a .985 OPS in his first year with the White Sox after being acquired in an offseason trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
