FORT MYERS, Fla. — Dustin Richardson, who had to leave his outing Monday with two outs in the eighth inning due to a ‘fatigued quad’ in his right leg, said he felt better Tuesday, but was going to rest the leg for a few days.

The lefty explained that he had first experienced pain in the quad about a week before, but it had subsided. As he progressed in his relief outing against the Cardinals, however, there continued to be a burning sensation when he landed upon delivering each pitch.

Richardson, who appeared in three games with the Red Sox last season and is thought to have a shot at contributing to the Sox’ bullpen at some point in 2010, said that he has never had any problems with the quad prior to this spring.
