One of the biggest 2016 MLB All-Star snubs finally gets his due
White Sox southpaw Jose Quintana is replacing Indians righty Danny Salazar on the roster
When the All-Star Game rosters were announced earlier this week, many were surprised to see White Sox lefty Jose Quintana not on the AL squad. Quintana has been one of the very best pitchers in the league this year. He was a snub, no doubt.
Now, Quintana is officially an All-Star. He has been added to the AL roster to replace Indians righty Danny Salazar, who will not pitch in the Midsummer Classic. Quintana is the 11th player added to the All-Star rosters since they were announced Tuesday.
Through 18 starts this season, the 27-year-old Quintana is 7-8 with a 3.21 ERA (128 ERA+) in 117 2/3 innings. He's struck out 105 and walked only 28. Quintana is among the AL top 10 in ERA, WHIP, WAR, and innings. His record has more to do with the performance of his White Sox teammates than anything.
