“My body feels well,” Quentin said duriing SoxFest at the Palmer House. “My foot feels good, my (right knee) feels great, and my wrist feels 10 times better having the hardware out. Old injuries that were in the past feel great.” Quentin acknowledged that he and Alex Rios, who both suffered off-years in 2009, “have to produce in the middle of the lineup, and it’s a good thing. That’s a position everyone wants to be in.”
Quentin broke out in a big smile when asked about the position switch from left field to right field.
“I’m pretty excited about that,” Quentin said. “I basically grew up as a right fielder and feel like it will come back extremely fast. I’ve been throwing and getting my arm ready for it.” …
Quentin is focused on his swing:
“I felt a little restricted, and you put that in the back of your mind as a hitter,” said Quentin of his right wrist. “Your hands are very important in the swing. But I’m more focused on how much better it feels now. It makes me excited. This offseason I’ve been hitting and been satisfied with my swing.
