Scouting Report: Carlos Quentin
By special request, I give you the Baseball of Tomorrow scouting report on Carlos Quentin.

Carlos Quentin, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Arizona Diamondbacks took Carlos Quentin, a Stanford product, in the first round of the 2003 draft.

Quentin, who put up a .396 AVG, .494 OBP, .630 SLG, and 1.124 OPS in his final season at Stanford, missed the 2003 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He came back strong in 2004, playing at two levels: Class A Lancaster and Class AA El Paso. In 65 games at Lancaster, Quentin posted a .310 AVG, .428 OBP, .562 SLG, and .990 OPS. In 60 games at El Paso, he batted .357 with a .443 OBP, .533 SLG, and a .976 OPS. Following a successful comeback season, Quentin started the 2005 season at Class AAA Tuscon, picking up right where he left off in 2004 at El Paso. In 136 games at Tucson, Quentin hit 21 HR and drove in 81 runs while batting .301 with a .422 OBP, .520 SLG, and a .942 OPS.

As evident from those numbers, Quentin is an all-around threat at the plate. He has good power with plate patience and discipline to match. Defensively, Quentin is a solid outfielder. Although he's spent time in centerfield, he's a better fit as a corner outfielder, as he doesn't have the speed or range to play in centerfield. On the basepaths, Quentin's neither a threat nor a liability.

With Luis Gonzalez and Shawn Green already occupying the corner spots, the Diamondbacks' have no room for Quentin. Quentin's ready for the bigs, but, with no room for him, the Diamondbacks sent him back to Tucson, where, on his second go-round, he should pick apart the Pacific Coast League pitching.

...The requester asked and suggested that I give ETA's and major league comparisons on my scouting reports. I don't really care for major league comparisons, but if that's what the fans want...

ETA: 2006
Major League Comparison: Magglio Ordonez
