According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Jose Quintana's name hasn't come up in trade talks this offseason.

While Chris Sale and Carlos Rodon have both been discussed as trade candidates this offseason, one GM told Cafardo that Quintana's name has been "conspicuous by his absence" in recent trade rumblings. Quintana is under contract through 2019 and holds a club option for 2020. Coming off his best season (13-12, 3.20 ERA, 181 Ks in 2016), it looks like Quintana will be in a White Sox uniform for the foreseeable future.

Jose Quintana pitched well in Thursday's loss to the Rays, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings.

Despite taking the loss, Quintana finished out his season in sturdy style on Thursday. Outside of an Alexei Ramirez RBI single in the second and a solo home run by Mikie Mahtook in the fourth, he kept the scoreboard clean. In 32 starts, the 27-year-old southpaw pitched to a 3.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 181/50 K/BB ratio. He tossed 208 innings this season and has now thrown at least 200 frames in four consecutive seasons.

Jose Quintana held the Indians to a single run in six innings during Saturday's 8-1 victory.

He struck out only two batters, walked three and gave up six hits to earn the win. He was relieved after throwing an inefficient 103 pitches in his six frames. He advances to 13-11 with a 3.21 ERA after 31 starts. Quintana has recorded 174 strikeouts versus 48 walks in 202 innings. He has been amazingly consistent throughout his five seasons. He has a career 46-45 record and 3.41 ERA in 945 innings.

Jose Quintana was hammered for six earned runs over just four innings Sunday as the White Sox fell to the Royals.

Kansas City pounced for one run in the first inning, three in the second, and two in the fourth. Quintana gave up 10 total hits and walked three, falling to 12-11 on the year while watching his season ERA rise from 3.05 to 3.26. He'll try to bounce back next time out against the Indians.
Sep 18 - 5:27 PM

Jose Quintana surrendered just one run over eight innings Tuesday, leading the White Sox to an 8-1 win over the Indians.

Quintana yielded five hits and a walk while striking out six on the evening. He and Indians starter Trevor Bauer had two very different outings with very different results -- Bauer gave up six runs without allowing an extra-base hit, while the Indians could only muster one run despite four of Quintana's five hits allowed going for extra bases. Life isn't fair, though, a fact not lost on Quintana -- owner of a 45-44 career record despite a lifetime 3.40 ERA -- and the southpaw certainly won't lose any sleep due to his counterpart's plight. Back to Quintana, the 27-year-old is now 12-10 with a 3.05 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 29 starts this year. He'll look to continue rolling Sunday against the Royals.
Sep 14 - 12:36 AM

Jose Quintana surrendered four runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings in taking a no-decision against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Quintana struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. Justin Upton whacked a three-run home run off the 27-year-old southpaw in the second inning to account for the bulk of the scoring on his line. He has now surrendered 11 runs in his last 11 2/3 innings, but for the season as a whole, Quintana has been an out-and-out rock, pitching to a 3.13 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 28 starts. A home showdown with the Indians shows next on his schedule.
Sep 7 - 6:14 PM

Jose Quintana allowed seven runs, striking out eight, over five innings in a loss to the Twins on Thursday.

A pair of homers, a two-run shot by Trevor Plouffe and a three-run job by Byron Buxton, did most of the damage, but the southpaw gave up seven hits on the night. The loss dropped him to 11-10 with a still-strong 3.05 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 27 starts on the year. Thursday's start was likely just a hiccup for the 27-year-old, and he should right the ship Tuesday against the Tigers.
Sep 1 - 11:42 PM

Jose Quintana was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Mariners, striking out eight over 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana scattered five hits and one walk on the evening. The White Sox have struggled to provide him with run support for most of the season, and on a night where he didn't need much they poured on nine runs for him. Now 11-9 on the season, he'll head into Thursday's start against the Twins in Minnesota with a fantastic 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 150/39 K/BB ratio over 172 1/3 innings on the season.
Aug 27 - 10:09 PM

Jose Quintana held the Athletics to two earned runs in seven innings Sunday for his 10th win.

Quintana gave up a pair of doubles to Marcus Semien and a two-run homer to Khris Davis in the top of the fourth inning, but he was otherwise sharp, striking out six batters against one walk. Quintana will carry a 2.84 ERA into his next at home against the Mariners.
Aug 21 - 5:09 PM

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.
Aug 16 - 10:48 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 1:13 AM

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.
Aug 1 - 2:25 PM

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.
