According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the White Sox "continually draw trade interest in their starting pitchers" and some teams prefer Jose Quintana over Chris Sale.
Because of the much lower acquisition cost, primarily, though Rosenthal adds "body type and delivery" as factors for some opposing clubs preferring Quintana to Sale. Quintana, 26, posted a 3.36 ERA and 177/44 K/BB ratio in 206 1/3 innings this past summer for the White Sox. He's thrown 200-plus innings in three straight seasons and carries a very team-friendly contract that could potentially run through 2020. Nov 12 - 8:16 AM

Jose Quintana lasted nine innings and allowed three runs Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals.

Typical. Quintana finishes with exactly nine wins for the third year in a row. He's made 97 starts between those three seasons and finished with ERAs of 3.51, 3.32 and 3.36. Maybe next year will be the one that the White Sox finally give him some help.

Jose Quintana pitched well in a no-decision, tossing seven innings of one-run ball in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Quintana was dueling a Tigers' pitching staff that brought a no-hitter into the ninth inning. The lone run came around in his final frame on a James McCann RBI single. It was one of eight hits the lefty allowed along with a walk and five strikeouts. Quintana has a solid 3.38 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP and a 169/42 K/BB ratio over 197 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Yankees in the Bronx in his next outing.

Jose Quintana pitched very well in earning a no-decision in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the A's, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings.

Stellar work from Quintana, who struck out six and walked one. The lone run to cross the plate against him came on a Marcus Semien RBI single in the third inning. Sadly, David Robertson would cough up a three-run homer to Billy Butler in the ninth to deprive the 26-year-old southpaw of what should have been a nice victory. Let's accentuate the positive, though. In 30 starts, Quintana's surrendered more than three runs just six times and now holds a 3.45 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. A road tilt with the Tigers shows next on his schedule.

Jose Quintana mostly limited the Twins in Saturday's win, allowing just two runs (one earned) on four hits over six innings.

Quintana struck out five and walked three in the win, with the Twins scoring both their runs in the first inning on a passed ball and a Trevor Plouffe RBI single. The 26-year-old southpaw will carry a 3.53 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into his next scheduled outing, a road showdown with the Indians.
Sep 12 - 11:01 PM

Jose Quintana was superb in Saturday's win over the Royals, throwing seven innings of shutout baseball.

Quintana scattered seven hits and struck out five without walking a batter. He hasn't been Chris Sale-level brilliant this season, but his 3.60 ERA and 1.32 WHIP are both plenty respectable. The WHIP number might be a little on the high side, but still. The 26-year-old southpaw will tango with the Twins in his upcoming home start.
Sep 5 - 10:56 PM

Jose Quintana ran into trouble in the first two innings of Sunday's no-decision against the Mariners, ultimately allowing four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Quintana was taken deep for a two-run homer by Kyle Seager in the first. Austin Jackson then launched a two-run shot of his own in the second. The 26-year-old southpaw wouldn't allow another run during the rest of his time on the mound, but the Mariners kept racking up the hits and he was driven from the game with one out in the fifth inning. Despite this lackluster outing, he'll still carry a rock-solid 3.75 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into his next start, a road showdown with the division-leading Royals.
Aug 30 - 6:15 PM

Jose Quintana allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Red Sox.

It was a pretty standard start for Quintana, who allowed seven hits while striking out six in the effort. The quality start was Quintana's 20th in 26 starts this season. Despite that, the left-hander remains just 7-10 with a 3.63 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Quintana will get back after it Sunday against the Mariners.
Aug 26 - 12:48 AM

Jose Quintana tossed a nice start in Thursday's win over the Angels, allowing two runs on eight hits over six innings.

While the Angels did accumulate eight hits, Quintana kept their offense in check even when he ran into trouble. Only one of those eight hits went for extra bases (Mike Trout hit a double in the first), which might help to explain the lack of runs. After the White Sox offense ran up a five-spot in the fifth, the final outcome of the game was never truly in doubt and Quintana improved to 7-10 on the season. He's pitched well in the shadow of fellow southpaw Chris Sale, boasting a 3.60 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 134/34 K/BB ratio over 160 innings. A home date with the Red Sox pops up next on his schedule.
Aug 21 - 1:32 AM

Jose Quintana posted a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Quintana allowed singular runs in the third, fifth and sixth innings while striking out four and walking one. He's been a dependable presence in the White Sox rotation throughout the season and boasts a 3.62 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 131/32 K/BB ratio over 154 innings. Up next on the schedule for the southpaw, a road date with the Angels.
Aug 15 - 11:50 PM

Jose Quintana took home a no-decision in Sunday's contest with the Royals, allowing four runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Quintana struck out four against two walks. He ran into trouble right out of the gates when he allowed an RBI double to Eric Hosmer and a two-run home run to Kendrys Morales in the first inning. The Royals would put up an additional run in the fifth inning via an RBI single by Ben Zobrist to account for the rest of the scoring on his line. While this was one of his more pedestrian outings this season, Quintana has been the White Sox second-best starter behind Chris Sale and boasts a 3.59 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 127/31 K/BB ratio across 148 innings. A home showdown with the crosstown rival Cubs looms on his schedule.
Aug 9 - 5:17 PM

Jose Quintana held the Rays to two runs in six innings, but took a no-decision as the White Sox lost late on Monday.

Quintana allowed an RBI double in the first inning and a sacrifice fly in the fifth, accounting for the damage. He scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out seven, but the White Sox wouldn't score until he was out of the game. Despite having only six wins, Quintana has a solid 3.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 123/29 K/BB ratio over 141 1/3 innings. He will face the tough Royals on the road in his next start.
Aug 4 - 12:10 AM

Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to two runs in 6 1/3 innings to pick up a win on Wednesday.

Quintana got a month's worth of run support tonight, as the White Sox busted out for nine runs to give him his sixth win of the season. It's the first time they've done so well in one of his starts since July 2014. With a shutout of the Indians last time out, Quintana has won back-to-back starts for the first time this season.
Jul 30 - 12:02 AM

Quintana needed 120 pitches to go the distance. The southpaw scattered seven hits while walking none and striking out eight. It was his first win since July 1. Quintana has again been a very solid option in fantasy leagues this season, posting a 3.56 ERA and 113/27 K/BB ratio in 129 innings across 20 starts. He'll face the struggling Red Sox next week in Boston.
Jul 24 - 10:29 PM

Jose Quintana surrendered four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Saturday as the White Sox fell to the Royals.

The game went 13 innings, so Quintana didn't factor at all into the decision. He struck out four and walked just one, but the Royals -- who eventually won -- pounded him for 10 hits. Quintana will carry a 3.83 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Indians.
