Since San Diego acquired Quentin from the Chicago White Sox in December 2011, he has only played in just 218 games for the team.
“When you have a bone bruise, the only thing you can really do is rest," Black said to the San Diego Union-Tribune. "And that's the course of action."
He is hitting .177 with four home runs and 18 RBI this season and has been on the been on the disabled list for the past month.
Next season, Quentin is owed $8 million, the final year of a three-year, $27 million contract extension.
