Quantrill did not factor into the decision in Thursday's loss to the Reds. He gave up one run on five hits and zero walks while striking out five over seven innings. A Tyler Naquin solo homer in the fifth inning accounted for all of the damage against Quantrill, who now sits with a 3.48 ERA through seven starts this season. He once again hung a goose egg in the walk column, so Quantrill seems to be trusting his stuff, but his stuff is not good enough to achieve these kinds of results on a regular basis, especially against better lineups. Quantrill has struck out just 25 batters in 41.1 innings this season and ranks among the bottom 10 qualifiers in strikeout percentage.
Quantrill won't start as scheduled Wednesday against the Reds since the game was postponed due to inclement weather. Both teams share a scheduled day off Thursday, so the Wednesday's game will simply be pushed back a day. The Guardians haven't officially announced their pitching plans, but Quantrill is expected to take the mound Thursday.
Quantrill (1-2) took the loss and allowed four runs on 10 hits in 6.1 innings, striking out three in a 4-1 defeat Tuesday against the White Sox. Quantrill scattered four singles over the first four innings, holding Chicago scoreless in those frames. He then allowed multiple hits in the next three innings, the big blow being a two-out, two-run homer by Gavin Sheets in the sixth. It was just his second home run allowed in six starts. The 27-year-old has never been a high-strikeout pitcher and has a career-low 5.2 strikeouts per nine innings through 34.1 innings. His next start will likely be early next week against Cincinnati.
Quantrill allowed three runs on three hits and five walks with seven strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Padres. Facing his former team, Quantrill was spotty with his control, though it didn't stop him from turning in a third straight quality start. The right-hander has been able to limit his mistakes in 2022 with a 3.54 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 17:15 K:BB across 28 innings. The 4.8 BB/9 is concerning, but he's mitigated the damage by allowing just one home run so far. Quantrill lines up for a road start versus the White Sox next week.
Quantrill (1-1) suffered the loss against the Angels on Thursday, completing six innings and allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out four. Quantrill struggled with his control and induced only three swinging strikes in the contest, but he may have met a better fate if not for a pair of third-inning errors -- one of which was his own -- that led to three runs. The right-hander nonetheless registered his second straight quality start and lowered his season ERA to 3.27, though that has come with an unimpressive 10:10 K:BB. His next start is tentatively slated to come at home against San Diego on Wednesday.
