The one-time King of the No-Decision has just four this year, though he's turned in gems on all of those (5 R in 26 2/3 IP). Quintana hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts. His ERA has dropped from 5.60 to 4.37 since the beginning of the month. Jun 27 - 11:56 PM

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves remain interested in trading for White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana or Rays right-hander Chris Archer.

It's no surprise, as the Braves were linked to both pitchers during the offseason. O'Brien hears that the club had scouts at Sonny Gray's start on Sunday, but they are more interested in landing either Quintana or Archer. The Braves aren't a contender, so they are looking for a pitcher under team control for multiple seasons. Both pitchers qualify. Quintana might be a more realistic target, as the Rays have a legitimate shot to win this year. Either way, the price tag would be substantial.

Jose Quintana pitched a sharp game in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Twins, firing off 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.

Quintana scattered five hits while striking out nine. He did not walk a batter over his strong 6 2/3 innings of work. The 28-year-old southpaw threw 119 pitches (69 strikes) in the outing. After a slow start to the season, Quintana has limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 5.30 to 4.69 in that space. A home start against the Yankees shows next on his schedule.
Jun 22 - 9:59 PM

Jose Quintana pitched seven innings of two-run ball Friday in a win over the Blue Jays.

It's Quintana's first win since May 2, though the White Sox had won three of his seven starts since. Nothing has come easy for Quintana this year, but he's used to that by now. We still think he'll be far better from here on in.
Jun 16 - 11:34 PM

Jose Quintana allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

Quintana gave up a run in the second inning and two more in the fourth. He struck out three and walked two in the outing. One of the more popular names in trade rumors, Quintana is not doing the White Sox any favors with his performance this season -- he will carry a bloated 5.30 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road start against the Blue Jays next time out.
Jun 11 - 6:08 PM

Jose Quintana is scheduled to face the Indians on Sunday at Progressive Field.

Quintana is in search of his first victory since May 2 on the road against the Royals. He has made six starts since that win, posting an 0-3 record with a 6.68 ERA. The southpaw posted a quality start in his only previous outing against Cleveland this season, allowing three runs and five hits over six innings in a loss on April 21.
Jun 11 - 1:20 AM

Jose Quintana walked four batters but struck out seven and held the Rays to one run over 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in the White Sox’ 4-2 win.

He had to pitch out of multiple jams and needed 114 pitches to navigate through his 5 1/3 frames. However, it was a nice bounce-back start for Quintana after he was blasted for a whopping 15 runs over his previous two outings. The left-hander takes on the Indians in Cleveland on Sunday.
Jun 6 - 11:18 PM

Jose Quintana was pummeled for seven runs in 2 2/3 innings by the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Quintana seemed to have gotten it together nicely in mid-April, posting a 2.70 ERA with 39 strikeouts and just two homers allowed over 40 innings in a six-start span. However, he's given up 15 runs in his last two starts. Tonight, he gave up three homers and 10 hits total to the 18 batters he faced. His strikeout rate remains strong and the velocity hasn't gone anywhere, so he still looks like a pretty good bet to us. Consider buying low.
May 31 - 12:30 AM

Jose Quintana was crushed for eight runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Quintana started out the game as sharp as can be, but ran into trouble in the fourth inning, when the Diamondbacks burned him for two runs. Things would unravel to considerably more disturbing degrees in the fifth. The six-run frame started with a two-run homer by Jake Lamb and devolved from there. While Quintana did strike out seven (with no walks), this was a start he will try to forget as soon as possible. It caused his ERA to rise from 3.92 to 4.82. He will look for a more respectable showing in a home start against the Red Sox next time he takes to the mound.
May 24 - 6:46 PM

Jose Quintana allowed just one hit and one run over eight innings Friday against the Mariners.

Now this is vintage Quintana; a classic performance with no decision to show for it. He has a 2.70 ERA in his last six starts after struggling his first three times out this season.
May 20 - 2:32 AM

Jose Quintana logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks over seven innings.

Quintana struck out four on the afternoon. He carried a shutout bid into the seventh inning where a three-run blast from Hunter Renfroe supplied all of the damage against him. He will look to further improve upon his 4.38 ERA and 1.42 WHIP when he does battle against the Mariners in Seattle on Friday.
May 14 - 5:49 PM

Jose Quintana allowed four earned runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Orioles.

Quintana was terrific in his last start, holding the Royals scoreless over eight dominant innings, but his early-season struggles continued on Sunday in Baltimore. The lefty walked three and surrendered nine hits while falling to 2-5 on the season with a 4.46 ERA. He'll try for better next time out against the light-hitting Padres.
May 7 - 4:47 PM

Jose Quintana held the Royals off the scoreboard for eight innings in a 6-0 victory on Tuesday.

It wasn't until the eighth inning that the Royals got two runners on base in a frame versus Quintana, and he obviously escaped that jam. The southpaw gave up just four singles and two walks on the night while recording seven strikeouts. Quintana has been dynamite his last two times out -- both against the Royals. He'll try to keep it going Sunday in Baltimore.
May 2 - 11:47 PM

Jose Quintana fell to 0-4 after giving up three runs over six innings Friday against the Indians.

Quintana surrendered the first run on a wild pitch in the third inning before Brandon Guyer took him deep for a two-run shot in the fourth inning. It was an improvement over his last outing, but nobody was beating Corey Kluber on this night. Quintana struck out six and walked three in the loss and owns a bloated 6.17 ERA through four starts. His track record speaks for itself, so we expect him to get in a groove soon.
Apr 22 - 12:17 AM

Jose Quintana continued his struggles by allowing five runs in 5 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

All of the damage came in the first inning. He allowed two walks, three singles, two doubles and a triple in that one bad frame before settling down to toss a subsequent 4 2/3 scoreless innings. All told he gave up nine base hits and five walks while striking out five. He falls to 0-3 on the season with a 6.75 ERA in 17 1/3 innings. His trade value is taking a hit. He has a tough matchup with the Indians looming next on the schedule.
