Carlos Quentin will make his San Diego Padres debut this afternoon, as the former Chicago White Sox outfielder was activated off the 15-day disabled list, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Quentin has been recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery for most of this season, but is now slated to bat fourth in the lineup and play left field for his new club.

An all-star last season, Quentin was traded from the White Sox to the Padres in exchange for Simón Castro and Pedro Hernandez over the winter. He batted .254 in 2011 with 24 home runs and 77 RBIs.
