Quentin returns, says he spoke to Greinke

Quentin charged Greinke after he was hit by a pitch during a game April 11, leading to a bench-clearing brawl in San Diego.
"First, I thanked (Greinke) for taking time to speak with me," said Quentin prior to a game against Milwaukee. "We were able to talk and have a good productive conversation. As far as the details of that conversation, that's personal."
Greinke had hit Quentin twice over the last few seasons before the pitch that led to the fight.
Quentin, batting cleanup against the Brewers, said he has spent most of his suspension "hitting, throwing and running." He also said his balky knee has benefited from the rest.
