Quentin returns to Chicago for treatment on foot
TORONTO (AP) - White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin left the team following Sunday's game against the Blue Jays and returned to Chicago for treatment on his left foot.

Quentin, who is batting .229 with eight homers and 18 RBIs, has started just one of Chicago's past five games. He had a cortisone shot Tuesday and sat out that evening's game at Cleveland, then pinch hit Wednesday.

After an off day Thursday, Quentin returned to the lineup Friday at Toronto. He was a late scratch Saturday.

White Sox interim manager Joey Cora said Quentin is scheduled to have shock wave treatment on his foot but didn't think there was any structural damage.

"They don't think it's anything really bad," Cora said before Sunday's game, Chicago's fourth straight loss. "It's just a bad spot, I guess."

Quentin tested his foot with some soft toss before Sunday's game. Depending on how Monday's treatment goes, Cora said Quentin could play Tuesday when the White Sox host Minnesota.

Quentin hit 36 home runs and finished fifth in AL MVP voting last season despite missing the final month with a fractured wrist.
