The San Diego Padres' newly acquired outfielder, Carlos Quentin, will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Monday in San Diego, the team reports. He'll likely be out for four to six weeks, though according to Dan Hayes of the North County Times, manager Bud Black is optimistic that Quentin could miss as few as three weeks. The knee has reportedly been bothering him since early this spring, Hayes tweets.

Quentin, 29, was acquired by the Padres back in December in exchange for pitching prospects Simon Castro and Pedro Hernandez. He has, in the past, dealt with soreness in his knee.
