Carlos Quentin injures shoulder

CHICAGO -- White Sox right fielder Carlos Quentin exited Saturday night's game with a left shoulder injury.

Quentin appeared to land awkwardly on the shoulder after making a great diving catch on Craig Gentry's line drive in the top of the first inning.

Quentin slowly walked off the field after manager Ozzie Guillen and trainer Herm Schneider spent a couple of minutes with him in the outfield. The White Sox announced that X-rays on Quentin's shoulder came back negative and he would be further examined on Sunday.

He was not in the lineup for the series finale on Sunday.

"It's not broken. That's what I was worried about," Guillen said after the White Sox beat the Rangers 3-2 on Saturday. "Carlos is a big kid. When you put all the weight in just one spot, you're going to be sore for a little while."

Alex Rios came off the bench to play center field as Alejandro De Aza moved over to right to take over for Quentin.

Quentin, who made the All-Star team this season, is hitting .255 with 24 home runs.
