Hoffpauir slow to heal from quadriceps ailment
PEORIA, Ariz. -- Jarrett Hoffpauir's bid to make a positive impression on his new team certainly has not gone the way he's wanted it to.

Hoffpauir, the Padres infielder who was claimed off waivers from Toronto in October, has been sidelined for the second time this spring with a troublesome right quadriceps injury.

"It's frustrating, because you want to be out there every day," Hoffpauir said Thursday.

Hoffpauir is hitting .375 in eight at-bats this spring with one home run. He's mostly a second baseman, but the Padres planned to take a look at him playing shortstop some before the injury.

Hoffpauir missed time earlier in camp, then returned to play only to aggravate the injury.

"Something is there and the more you play on it, the worse it gets," he said. "I probably wasn't quite ready. We tested it and everything was fine, but game speed is a different thing."
