The Padres were expecting Quentin to miss just one game after he aggravated his chronic knee injury on an awkward slide Monday. They changed their minds, though, deciding to give him the injection in hopes that he'll be ready on Friday after Thursday's off day. Jesus Guzman is playing left field Wednesday.
The Yankees had the option of skipping Nuno with the off day, but they decided to give CC Sabathia an extra day of rest. "It's just the way we did it because we're in another long stretch here," manager Joe Girardi said. "After this day off, it's 17 days in a row, so that's how we decided to do it."
David Freese (thumb) is out of the Cardinals' lineup again Wednesday.
He's now missed three straight games due to swelling around his right thumb where he needed three stitches for a small cut. The Cards are worried that cut could split open, so they're playing things cautiously. Freese could be back in there Friday after the off day Thursday. Matt Carpenter is at third again Wednesday, with Daniel Descalso covering second.
