Quantrill did not factor into the decision in Friday's 16-12 win over the Rockies. He allowed four runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeout over five innings. In his first start at Coors Field, the 23-year-old managed to not get completely destroyed by a hot-hitting Rockies lineup. He gave up the lead on a two-run homer to David Dahl in the third inning and then allowed another pair of runs in the fifth. While it wasn't his best outing, the right-hander still has the potential to make an impact on the Padres' rotation. Through six starts, he owns a 5.23 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 27:8 KK:BB. Quantrill will look for a win in Wednesday's matchup against the Brewers.
Quantrill is scheduled to start Friday's game versus the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Quantrill has allowed five runs over 11 innings with a 16:2 K:BB across his last two starts to earn another turn through the rotation. The 23-year-old will have a tall order Friday as he makes his first career start at Coors Field.
Quantrill allowed two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts and no walks across five innings during a no-decision against the Phillies on Wednesday. The Padres pulled Quantrill after 80 pitches, which manager Andy Greene may have regretted afterwards. The Padres bullpen yielded five runs in the seventh and eighth to blow a three-run lead. Quantrill has been shuffling back and forth between Triple-A and the big leagues for spot starts with the Padres this year. With the way he pitched Wednesday, he may have earned additional opportunities in the immediate future.
Quantrill was recalled from Triple-A El Paso ahead of his scheduled start against the Phillies on Wednesday. Quantrill has made four starts for the Padres this season, compiling a 5.14 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB in 21 innings during those appearances. The right-hander has a chance to stick in the rotation for another turn if he holds his own Wednesday, as fellow starter Matt Strahm (ribs) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move.
Quantrill will be called up from Triple-A El Paso to start Wednesday against the Phillies, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Quantrill has been shuttling between El Paso and San Diego for spot starts for much of the season and that will continue as he's set to be recalled again after getting sent down following his last start May 25. He has a 5.14 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB in 21 big-league innings this season.
