Jose Quintana spun a gem in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays, striking out 10 in six scoreless innings to pick up his third win.
Quintana has been one of the best under-the-radar pitchers in fantasy baseball in recent years, with only his low win totals suppressing his fantasy value. He now has three wins, a 9.39 K/9 strikeout rate, and a 1.47 ERA in 30 2/3 innings. He's not going to remain under-the-radar very often with those types of numbers. The lefty will look to continue his brilliant month with next week's home start against the Red Sox. Apr 27 - 11:36 PM

Jose Quintana was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Rangers, allowing just four hits over seven innings of shutout baseball.

Quintana also issued a pair of walks while striking out four on the night. The 27-year-old southpaw has been terrific through his first four starts this season, registering a 1.82 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 22/5 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine outing when he squares off against the powerful Blue Jays lineup in Toronto on Wednesday.

Jose Quintana turned in a respectable outing in Sunday's loss to the Rays, yielding three runs (two earned) on seven hits over six innings.

Quintana struck out six without walking a batter. Steve Pearce opened the scoring against him in the first inning with an RBI double. The other earned run that touched home on his watch came in the third, when he surrendered an RBI single to Brandon Guyer. Through three starts, the veteran southpaw holds a 2.55 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 18/3 K/BB ratio across 17 2/3 innings. Up next for Quintana, a home start against the Rangers

Jose Quintana spun six innings of one-run ball in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Twins.

Quintana was supposed to start Sunday before the game was rained out, but he clearly wasn't affected by the extra day of rest. The left-hander issued three free passes, but he allowed just four hits -- three singles -- and struck out five. Quintana boasts a 2.31 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 frames in his first two outings. He'll try to keep it going this weekend in Tampa.
Apr 11 - 8:15 PM

Sunday's game between the Indians and White Sox has been postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up as part of a straight doubleheader on May 23. Jose Quintana should be pushed back to Monday by the White Sox, while the Indians will skip Josh Tomlin's turn following the rainout.
Apr 10 - 1:34 PM

Jose Quintana opened the season in typically dependable form in Tuesday's no-decision against the A's, allowing two runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Quintana struck out seven without walking a batter. Jed Lowrie knocked him for RBI singles in the third and fifth innings, but he otherwise came away unscathed. While Chris Sale fills the role of "ace" and Carlos Rodon the role of "exciting young pitcher," Quintana just keeps on ticking. The 27-year-old left-hander pitched a career-best 206 1/3 innings last season while compiling a 3.36 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 177/44 K/BB ratio. He is scheduled to tango with the Indians in a home start this weekend.
Apr 6 - 1:40 AM

Jose Quintana was in a giving mood during Wednesday's loss to the Reds, surrendering nine hits while allowing four runs across three innings.

Quintana did strike out three, but he also issued three walks in what was generally a lackluster late spring outing. Two of the four runs he allowed came home when Brandon Phillips burned him for a two-run homer in the third inning. Disregard all of that non-goodness. We actually like Quintana as a low-priced rotation option for fantasy purposes. He is a workhorse who has thrown at least 200 innings in each of the past three seasons and on top of that, the 27-year-old southpaw holds a career ERA of 3.46.
Mar 30 - 7:32 PM

Jose Quintana gave up two runs in six innings Friday against the Mariners in Cactus League action.

Quintana gave up both runs in the first inning, but managed to hold off the Mariners the rest of the way. The southpaw struck out seven and walked one. Despite posting a 3.40 ERA with 7.7 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 over the past three seasons, Quintana continues to be undervalued in fantasy leagues. He has never won more than nine games in a season, but that’s hardly his fault. He’s due for some better luck.
Mar 25 - 7:36 PM

Jose Quintana surrendered three earned runs over four innings Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Andre Ethier and Enrique Hernandez both homered against the White Sox left-hander. Quintana has a 5.40 ERA through two Cactus League appearances, but there's nothing to worry about here. He owns a shiny 3.34 ERA and 7.9 K/9 over the last two seasons for Chicago.
Mar 15 - 7:16 PM

Jose Quintana allowed two runs over 4 1/3 innings Thursday against the Rangers.

Quintana began his outing with three scoreless frames before giving up one run in the fourth and one in the fifth. The southpaw allowed four hits (including a solo homer to Drew Robinson) while striking out three. Quintana isn’t the most exciting fantasy option, but he has quietly posted a 3.34 ERA with 7.9 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 over the past two seasons.
Mar 10 - 5:45 PM

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.

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.
