Reed improved his ERA to 2.14 after picking up his 16th save of the season. He has converted 16 of 17 save opportunities while striking out 24 over 21 innings of work.
Quintana carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before he surrendered a one-out broken-bat single to David Ortiz. He allowed just three hits as he fired 6 2/3 scoreless innings. The left-hander struck out five and walked two as he picked up his third win of the season.
"In the fifth inning, I realized, man, they haven't got a hit yet," Quintana said. "All I wanted to do was just get outs and keep the team ahead."
Quintana (3-1) picked up his first win since April 24. He is 1-1 with a 4.03 ERA in his last five starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday at home against the Cubs. He is 2-1 with a 3.79 ERA in four starts at home.
Santiago only lasted 3 1/3 innings in his most recent start Saturday against the Angels. He has a 6.00 ERA in his last two starts since pitching seven scoreless innings against the Mets on May 7.
Sale will be replaced Hector Santiago on Wednesday but is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Cubs. He has struck out 19 and has not allowed a run over his last 23 innings of work. Sale is 4-0 with a 1.18 ERA in his last five starts.
Ventura worked out Beckham at shortstop during spring break but never used him in a game. Ventura wants to see if he is capable of handling a limited role at shortstop on days when Alexei Ramirez is not in the lineup.
"When everybody starts getting healthy you can only fit so many people in certain spots," Ventura said. "Alexei is the shortstop. But in case you need somebody there, is (Beckham) able to do that? That's more of a reason to have him do it. I want him to play second base here. But for one game, or if something happens before you could get somebody up here, would he be able to do it? … You start to find out if he's comfortable."
Beckham, who played shortstop in college, has gone 6 for 13 with two RBI in three rehab games and could be back with the White Sox at the end of the week.
