When the Giants claimed him off waivers from the Angels on Aug. 30, Quintana was viewed as a potential short-term replacement in the rotation while Johnny Cueto (elbow) and Alex Wood (COVID-19) were on the injured list, but manager Gabe Kapler has thus far kept the veteran lefty in the bullpen. Quintana dazzled in his team debut a day after being scooped off the waiver wire -- he struck out six over 3.1 innings of one-hit ball against the Brewers -- and he looks like he could be entrusted with a key role out of the bullpen over the final three weeks of the regular season.
