Jose Quintana suffered a tough-luck loss Tuesday, allowing two runs over six innings against the Indians.

Quintana struck out just three batters, allowing seven hits and walking a pair. He wasn't terribly efficient with 105 pitches thrown over his six frames, but it was another quality start for the southpaw. Unfortunately for him, he was out-pitched by Corey Kluber. Quintana has just nine wins despite a 2.85 ERA, as he continues to be one of the unluckiest pitchers in baseball when it comes to run support. He'll face the A's on Sunday.

Jose Quintana was charged with one run in 7 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals.

Robin Ventura will probably be asked more about intentionally walking Alcides Escobar twice in his one, but maybe his worst call was sending Quintana back out for the eighth, only to pull him after a one-out double. If Quintana was the one mistake away from coming out, why not just go to Nate Jones to start the inning with a clean slate? As it was, Jones allowed the inherited runner to score, erasing the White Sox's 1-0 lead. The White Sox went on to lose in 14.

Jose Quintana picked up his ninth win after allowing three runs in 7 1/3 innings Thursday against the Tigers.

That gives Quintana two months to reach double figures in wins for the first time in his career; he ended up with nine in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Quintana is fourth in the AL with a 2.93 ERA and 10th with 128 strikeouts.
Aug 4 - 4:46 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale hears that the White Sox intend to keep Jose Quintana.

And they're probably not trading Chris Sale either. Quintana (and Sale) drew quite a bit of trade interest, but the White Sox have not budged off their sky-high asking prices. And why would they? Quintana holds a stellar 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 125/33 K/BB ratio in 137 innings this season and he is under contract with Chicago through 2018 with options for 2018 and 2019.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Rangers have talked to the White Sox about Jose Quintana in addition to Chris Sale.

As with their inquiry on Sale, Rosenthal notes that the talks didn't go very far due to the differences each club had in the hurler's perceived value. The Rangers look as though they are exploring every possible avenue in their search for upgrades to their starting rotation.

Jose Quintana pitched well in a no-decision against the Twins on Friday, punching out nine over 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana allowed seven hits and a walk in the ballgame. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Kennys Vargas in the sixth inning. The veteran southpaw has been outstanding for the White Sox this season, compiling a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 125/33 K/BB ratio over 137 innings. He'll look to continue his dominance when he takes on the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday.
Jul 30 - 12:00 AM

Jose Quintana tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Tigers.

Quintana should have collected his ninth win, but White Sox closer David Robertson allowed three solo homers in the top of the ninth inning as the Tigers tied the game. Chicago rallied to win in the bottom of the ninth, with Melky Cabrera providing the walkoff hit. Quintana, 27, stands 8-8 with a shiny 2.97 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 116/32 K/BB ratio in 130 1/3 innings this season. He'll face the Twins next.
Jul 24 - 6:07 PM

Jose Quintana pitched well in Tuesday's win over the Mariners, allowing one run on six hits over six innings.

Quintana struck out seven and walked three on the evening. It actually looked like he might be in for a huge strikeout game, as he recorded five over the first two innings. Alas, grander possibilities faded away over the next four frames. No matter. The only run to score during his six innings of work came when Robinson Cano rocked a solo home run off him in the fourth inning. Quintana -- an All-Star replacement for Danny Santana (elbow) earlier this month -- will carry a 3.13 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 112/31 K/BB ratio (123 2/3 innings) into a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 20 - 1:45 AM

Jose Quintana has been named to the American League All-Star team as an injury replacement.

He's taking Danny Santana's (elbow) place. Quintana earned the spot by posting a 3.21 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 105/28 K/BB ratio over 117 2/3 innings in the first half.
Jul 10 - 2:05 PM

Jose Quintana scattered five hits and four runs over six innings Saturday in a win over the Braves.

It wasn't a vintage outing for Quintana, but he was good enough to pick up his seventh win of the season. He finished the afternoon with five strikeouts and a single walk while throwing 59 of his 96 pitches for strikes. The long ball was an issue for Quintana Saturday as he matched a season-high by allowing three home runs. The All-Star snub holds a steady 3.21 ERA over 18 starts this year.
Jul 9 - 5:13 PM

Jose Quintana threw seven innings of one-run ball Sunday as the White Sox beat the Astros 4-1.

Quintana had gone winless in nine straight decisions leading into this one, but much of that had to do with the White Sox offense. He took the reins himself on Sunday afternoon in Houston, yielding just two hits and two walks over seven dominant frames. The one run Quintana allowed came on a first-inning solo shot by George Springer. He struck out four and now has 100 strikeouts on the year. Quintana will carry a 6-8 record, 3.06 ERA, and 1.12 WHIP into his next start at home against the punchless Braves.
Jul 3 - 5:21 PM

Jose Quintana lost his seventh straight decision Tuesday, allowing four runs over seven innings against the Twins.

Quintana had one big thorn in his side all night, as Brian Dozier homered twice and drove in all four of the Twins' runs against the lefty. He gave up six hits and a walk while striking out eight in total. Quintana is now 5-8 on the year and hasn't won a start since moving to 5-1 on May 8. He's still got a strong 3.18 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 96/25 K/BB ratio over 104 2/3 innings, and Quintana will look for that elusive victory Sunday at the Astros.
Jun 28 - 11:07 PM

Jose Quintana surrendered six runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.

A rare off night for Quintana. He walked a career-high six batters, and he could have been knocked out even earlier if not for some bad baserunning by the Red Sox (they had David Ortiz thrown out at home by a mile in the first and Sandy Leon picked off third in the fourth). It was just the third time in 15 starts this year that he's allowed more than three runs.
Jun 22 - 11:19 PM

Jose Quintana yielded two runs over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday.

Quintana was at risk for his seventh straight loss after giving up a go-ahead RBI double to Jason Kipnis in the bottom of the eighth, but the White Sox tied things up in the ninth before eventually losing the game. The southpaw struck out six in the no-decision and still owns a quality 2.63 ERA on the year. He’ll try again to get back on the winning side next week in a tough matchup against the Red Sox on the road.
