Quintana struck out the side while allowing one hit in one inning of relief Tuesday against the Giants.
The left-hander made his first big-league appearance since May 30 after an IL stint due to a bout of left shoulder inflammation. Quintana allowed a one-out infield single but struck out each of the remaining batters he faced. The relief appearance was his first of the season, and he figures to continue working out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future while Patrick Sandoval remains in the starting rotation.
The Angels activated Quintana (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Monday.
Since Quintana hasn't pitched since May 30 with left shoulder inflammation, he was expected to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated. The Angels ultimately chose to forgo sending him on the rehab assignment, and the fact that Quintana is being activated despite not being scheduled to start during the two-game series in San Francisco that begins Tuesday suggests that he'll likely head to the bullpen for the time being. Manager Joe Maddon hasn't hinted that the Angels have any plans to abandon their six-man rotation, but at this point, Patrick Sandoval may have secured a starting role ahead of Quintana, who had struggled prior to landing on the IL. Through nine starts this season spanning 33.2 innings, Quintana has posted a 7.22 ERA and 1.93 WHIP while issuing 26 walks.
Quintana (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Monday and will toss a simulated game at Angel Stadium this weekend, MLB.com reports.
The southpaw has been on the shelf since May 31 due to left shoulder inflammation, but his bullpen session reportedly went well, and he is now ready to take the next step in his recovery. If his sim game over the weekend goes well, Quintana is likely to then head out on a minor-league rehab assignment before rejoining the Angels.
Quintana (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session Monday and will embark upon a rehab assignment before rejoining the Angels, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
When Quintana resumed throwing a few days after going on the injured list May 31, there was optimism that he could return to the big club without needing a rehab assignment. However, the Angels are opting to proceed cautiously with the left-hander, and manager Joe Maddon commented Saturday that "there's no reason to fast-track it right now" with Quintana. Per Harris, the club is discussing where the veteran starter will slot into the rotation mix when he returns.
Quintana (shoulder) tossed a bullpen session Monday and could be activated by the end of the week, the Associated Press reports.
The left-hander's bullpen went well, so there is optimism that he could return to the big club soon. Prior to going on the injured list May 31, Quintana had compiled a 3.78 ERA and 11.9 K/9 over his previous 16.2 innings, so he'll likely have a spot in the rotation waiting for him. That said, the veteran also registered a less-than-promising 1.62 WHIP and 6.5 BB/9 in that four-start stretch, so he remains a risky play in fantasy.
Quintana (shoulder) has been throwing from 90 feet recently, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Quintana was diagnosed with left shoulder inflammation after he underwent an MRI recently, but he's resumed a throwing program. A timetable for the left-hander's return hasn't yet been established, but Patrick Sandoval will take his place in the starting rotation.
The Angels placed Quintana (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Monday.
While Quintana's inflamed left shoulder relegates him to the shelf, manager Joe Maddon said Patrick Sandoval is the most likely candidate to fill the lefty's spot in the six-man rotation, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register. Though Quintana has posted a career-best 13.4 K/9 over his nine starts, his command and control has disappeared in his age-32 campaign. Quintana sits on a 7.22 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 7.0 BB/9 through 33.2 innings.
Quintana was removed from Sunday's start against the Athletics due to shoulder discomfort, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Quintana only lasted three innings Sunday, and he allowed two unearned runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five. Manager Joe Maddon said after the game that Quintana will be examined to determine the extent of the issue. Quintana tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Mariners on Sunday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to pitch.
Quintana allowed three earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.
Quintana surrendered a third inning home run to Mark Canha. In addition, he allowed three doubles. The 32-year-old has struggled this season, posting a career-worst 7.92 ERA and a 1.92 WHIP in 30.2 innings. He has failed to post a scoreless outing or go deeper than five innings. Quintana has a 13.2 K/9, but his .410 BABIP reflects both bad luck and the hard contact he's giving up.
Quintana allowed three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out seven in 4.1 innings in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.
Quintana has only lasted five innings in one of his first seven starts of the season, and he was forced to settle for a second straight no-decision Sunday. He only allowed one run in the first four innings Sunday but gave up four runs in the bottom of the fifth. The southpaw has posted an 8.53 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in 25.1 innings across his first seven starts of the season.
Quintana allowed one run on two hits and five walks while striking out six across four innings in the Angels' win over the Dodgers on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
Quintana's only run allowed came on a Chris Taylor RBI-single in the third inning. The 32-year-old is off to the worst start of his career, sporting a 9.00 ERA and 2.14 WHIP in 21 innings. He's allowed at least four earned runs in half of his starts, and he's pitched into the fifth inning only once. His five walks allowed Sunday were a season high. Quintana could end up falling out of the rotation and into a bulk-inning relief role if this continues.
Quintana (0-3) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over 3.2 frames Monday, striking out nine and taking a loss against the Rays.
Quintana started Monday's game on short notice and the Rays took advantage. He gave up five hits and four runs during the third inning before Willy Adames hammered a 446-foot solo blast off him in the fourth. The 32-year-old lefty now owns a brutal 10.59 ERA through 17 innings and he's allowed at least four runs in all but one start this season. Quintana is expected to face the Dodgers at home this weekend.
Quintana will start Monday's game against the Rays.
Quintana will take the mound one day earlier than expected since Shohei Ohtani (elbow) was scratched from his scheduled start. In his last outing, Quintana allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two in 3.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Rangers.
Quintana (0-2) took the loss Tuesday at Texas, going 3.1 innings and allowing five runs, six hits and two walks with two strikeouts as Los Angeles fell 6-1.
Quintana served up home runs to Nick Solak in the first and Joey Gallo in the third before allowing three straight baserunners in the fourth, which ended his day. He's now failed to complete four innings pitched in three of his four starts with Los Angeles.
Quintana didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Rangers, allowing one run on two hits and four walks over five innings. He struck out eight.
While the southpaw had trouble finding the plate consistently, throwing 53 of 95 pitches for strikes, Quintana's eight K's were a new season high and he exited the game in line for his first win of the year before the Angels bullpen fell apart late. Despite the solid outing, he'll take a 9.00 ERA and 17:11 K:BB through 10 innings into his next start, a road rematch with the Rangers on Tuesday.
Quintana will start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 32-year-old was originally slated to start Saturday, but he's been bumped back a few days due to two postponements from the Twins' COVID-19 issues. Dylan Bundy will remain on schedule to start Monday while Shohei Ohtani (blister) returns from a two-week absence to pitch Tuesday. Quintana has surrendered 11 runs (nine earned) on 10 hits with a 9:7 K:BB over five innings through his first two starts of 2021.
Quintana and the Angels won't play the Twins on Sunday since the game was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
It's the second straight postponement in Los Angeles as the Twins conduct additional testing and contact tracing following multiple positive tests for COVID-19. Quintana figures to take the mound for the Angels on Monday against the Rangers, though the team has yet to officially announce its updated pitching plans.
Quintana won't start Saturday against the Twins as scheduled as the game has been postponed due to a potential COVID-19 outbreak for the Twins, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Twins have had at least one player test positive for coronavirus Saturday, so the league elected to postpone the contest until contact tracing can be completed. It's possible Quintana could start Sunday, as that game hasn't been canceled yet, but these situations have tended to lead to more than one postponement, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the next game wiped out as well.
Quintana (0-1) took the loss against Toronto on Saturday, giving up seven runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks over 1.2 innings. He struck out four.
Quintana's start was impacted by a number of external factors -- a nearly three-hour rain delay chief among those -- and he was stung by some bad fortune when a nearly 10-minute replay review went against him in the second inning. Still, there's little excuse for walking four batters without making it through the second frame or throwing only 33 of 61 pitches for strikes. Quintana had a promising spring but has started off with a pair of poor performances in the regular season, yielding nine earned runs over five combined innings. He'll try to right the ship Friday when he gets a home start against Minnesota.
Quintana will make his second start of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Quintana was originally projected to start Monday against the Royals, but he'll have his turn through the rotation bumped up due to the absence of Shohei Ohtani (blister). He was roughed up in his Angels debut, allowing four earned runs across 3.1 innings against the Astros.
