What are some reasonable expectations for this year??? Should he be owned in a 10 team league??? I havent heard many opinions about him around here and I'm curious to what people are expecting out of him.

When Quentin and Conor Jackson were both in the Arizona system, there were a lot of comparisons.
They both played in the Pac 10, one with Cal and the other with Stanford.
They progressed through the minors together and it was felt that Quentin would hit more HR's, have more SB's and a lower BA and the OBP would be the the same as Jackson's, since Quentin will league the league in HBP.

Quentin, then encountered injury problems and with the huge amount of young outfielders in the AZ system, he was shipped off. Now that it seems his injury problems with the shoulder are behind him, I could see these type numbers.

20-25 HR's. 15 SB's, 80-90 RBI's, .270-.280 BA, .380 OBP

He is also a pretty good defensive outfielder, so they like him out there.

I wrote a Sleeper of the Week article about him pre-season (see sig for link).

At the time, the two big issues for me were the lingering worries over the injury, plus the battle he was facing to win a starting job. His talent was never in question.

Both of those issues seem to have fallen into place for him, so he looks good to go for the rest of the year. The numbers from Vitreous look good - his ceiling is, I think, higher; I don't expect him to get there this year, but if he can stay healthy all year, he'd be a breakout pick for me in 2009.

This guy looks better and better to me each day. What's his PT situation? Is he an everyday player for the rest of the season?

I want to offer something to his owner, but I'm not sure where to rank him. What tier SPs do you guys think could bring him in a trade?

I like him. I like him a lot. Health is a major key though.
