Quintana faces minimum; White Sox tie Rockies 5-5

Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Jose Quintana went from getting nobody out in his last start to facing the minimum 15 batters in five dominant innings Sunday for the Chicago White Sox in a 5-5 tie with the Colorado Rockies.

Quintana entered with a 30.00 ERA and had allowed seven hits, two walks and nine runs in his previous outing. He hadn't lasted past the third inning in a rough spring that he acknowledged was testing his confidence.

''It never happened in my career, getting nobody out,'' Quintana said.

Wilin Rosario's leadoff single in the second was the lone hit off Quintana, who then picked off Rosario at first base. The left-hander struck out NL batting champion Michael Cuddyer twice.

''I think you need to have some success to get that confidence going into the season,'' Chicago catcher Tyler Flowers said. ''He should be full of it today.''

Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood allowed five hits and hit a batter with a pitch in a three-run second inning that included Blake Tekottte's RBI double.

Chatwood gave up five runs and 10 hits before leaving with one out in the sixth.

Colorado rallied from a 5-0 deficit. Marcus Semien's double error on a grounder to shortstop in the eighth scored two runs to tie it.

The game was stopped after nine innings.


White Sox: Quintana said he worked on his delivery and delaying his release point.

''We were able to do a lot of things that before we didn't have a chance to do because we were having a hard time getting ahead,'' Flowers said. ''We were able to execute some curveballs in the dirt, fastballs up and in. We threw a few more cutters to get him a good feel for that again.''

Rockies: Chatwood and fellow starters Brett Anderson and Jorge De La Rosa have allowed 31 hits over 14 1-3 innings in the last three days. But manager Walt Weiss isn't concerned.

''I rely more on their track record than I do a start in spring training,'' he said.


Rockies left-hander Boone Logan pitched in a minor league game Saturday and will do so again Monday. That way, if he's placed on the 15-day disabled list to start the season, it will be retroactive to his last big league appearance on Thursday.

''It leaves some options open for us,'' Weiss said.

Logan threw nine pitches to a single lefty Saturday as he continues his recovery from offseason elbow surgery.


Nolan Arenado walked through the Rockies clubhouse wearing a wrap on his left hand - and a wide smile.

''It's OK, I'm telling you,'' the Gold Glove third baseman said. ''I can squeeze it. But it was scary for a second, no doubt.''

Arenado was hit on the side of his hand below the pinkie with a fastball Saturday. An X-ray was negative, and Arenado could return this week.


White Sox: First baseman Jose Abreu sat out for a second straight day after leaving Friday's game with a sore left ankle.

Rockies: Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) threw a bullpen session. ... Left-hander Franklin Morales (groin) will start Monday.


Despite solid springs, the White Sox optioned third baseman Matt Davidson and outfielder Jordan Danks to Triple-A. Right-handers Jake Petricka and Dylan Axelrod also were sent down. Right-hander Mitchell Boggs was waived.

Chicago acquired Davidson from Arizona in December for closer Addison Reed. Davidson is hitting .308, but the White Sox already have third basemen Conor Gillaspie and Jeff Keppinger.

Danks is hitting .333 with five homers and 10 RBIs, but the White Sox have a crowded outfield.

The moves left Chicago with 39 players on the 40-man roster.


Weiss lost a replay challenge in the sixth when he argued that Chicago's Adam Eaton didn't get back to the bag after he slid past second on a successful steal attempt.

It took 67 seconds for umpires to rule there was no conclusive replay angle.

''I think it's going to be a very different story during the season,'' Weiss said, ''because we're going to have 12 camera angles as opposed to two or three in spring training.''
