San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin will start Tuesday's matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers after completing an eight-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball.

Quentin received the ban for his role in a benches-clearing brawl between the Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers on April 11. The veteran slugger charged the mound after being hit by a pitch by the Dodgers' Zack Greinke in the sixth inning, setting off a wild fight between both teams during which Greinke fractured his left collarbone.

The 30-year-old, who is hitting just .174 with three RBI in 10 games this season, will bat fourth and play left field in Tuesday's contest.
