Cubs' Jose Quintana: Pitches better Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana allowed one run across two innings in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks. He gave up three hits and two walks while striking out two.

Quintana allowed three runs over two innings in his spring training debut Tuesday, so this was a step in the right direction, albeit in a short outing. The lefty will look to build momentum over the next few weeks and head into the regular season with some confidence after posting a career-worst 4.68 ERA in 2019.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Struggles in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana allowed three runs over two innings in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rockies. He struck out one.

Quintana had been dealing with the flu recently, so it's not overly surprising to him a bit sluggish in his first start of spring training. What's more concerning for the lefty is that he posted a career-worst 4.68 ERA in 2019 while his K/9 rate dropped as well. Quintana will aim to perform better in his upcoming Cactus League starts and build some momentum heading into 2020.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (illness) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Quintana was previously reported to be throwing a bullpen Tuesday but was evidently delayed one more day due to the flu. With Opening Day still a month away, his readiness for the start of the regular season doesn't appear to be seriously threatened.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Scheduled for bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (illness) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Quintana had been slowed by the flu in recent days, but he appears to be over the illness. He should have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana didn't throw live batting practice Sunday due to an illness, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The veteran left-hander figures to retake the mound in a couple days once he's clear of the ailment. Quintana is looking for a rebound season after posting a 4.68 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 32 outings last season.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Optioned picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana's $10.5 million club option was picked up by the Cubs on Saturday.

Quintana wasn't great in 2019, finishing the year with a career-worst 4.68 ERA. He's still worth his comparatively low salary even if he remains at that level next season, and his 3.80 FIP suggests that a fair amount of positive regression is due.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Shelled by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (13-9) took the loss against the Pirates on Thursday, giving up seven runs (five earned) on 12 hits over five innings, striking out four and walking none as the Cubs fell 9-5.

Quintana's latest shellacking marked the third straight start in which he's given up at least five earned runs. He's shown flashes of brilliance at times in 2019, but the late-season rough patch leaves him with an unspectacular 4.68 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 171 innings to close the campaign.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Thumped by Pirates in final start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (13-9) allowed seven runs (five earned) on 12 hits across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Pirates. He struck out four and did not issue any walks.

About the only positive was the lack of free passes, but Quintana was otherwise poor in his final outing of the season. It was a rough September for the lefty, as he allowed 23 earned runs over 18.2 innings. Quintana ends 2019 with a 152:46 K:BB across 171 innings to go with a disappointing 4.68 ERA, and the Cubs will need him to improve on that mark next year if they want a better chance at the playoffs.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Gives up five runs in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana gave up five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four through 2.1 innings in a no-decision during a 9-8 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Quintana gave up single runs in the first and third innings but ran into bigger trouble in the third frame as he was tagged for three runs on two singles, a walk and a hit batsman before departing after 77 pitches. The 30-year-old has a 4.55 ERA and 148 strikeouts through 30 starts this season. Quintana is scheduled to make his next start Thursday on the road against the Pirates.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Next start bumped back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana's next scheduled start has been pushed back from Friday to Saturday, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune.

Quintana was set to take the ball in the second game of the Cubs' series against the Cardinals this weekend, but manager Joe Maddon decided to make a couple moves when Cole Hamels was scratched with shoulder fatigue. Quintana will now start Saturday, and Alec Mills will get the nod Friday instead.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Gives up five runs in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana gave up five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out one through 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday.

After two scoreless innings to start the game, the wheels came off in the third frame as Quintana allowed seven baserunners while only recording one out. The 30-year-old has a 4.37 ERA and 144 strikeouts through 29 starts this season. Quintana is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Stymied by Padres on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana did not factor into the decision against San Diego on Tuesday, pitching three innings and giving up six runs (four earned) on seven hits while striking out one.

Quintana entered the game having completed five or more innings in 10 of his last 12 starts but matched his shortest outing of the season by lasting only three frames against the Padres. He retired the side in order in the first inning, but a pair of infield singles leading off the second set up a five-run frame that included no extra-base hits. Quintana then gave up a solo home run to Ty France in the third inning and did not return for the fourth, exiting the game after throwing 57 pitches. The southpaw owns a 4.15 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 143:43 K:BB through 160.1 innings this season and will head home to take on the Pirates on Sunday in his next scheduled start.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Earns 13th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (13-8) picked up the win Thursday against the Brewers, allowing four runs on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out five across five innings.

The long ball proved to haunt Quintana on Thursday, although his offense was able to offset any threat by providing ample run support. After giving up a two-run home run to Hernan Perez in the second inning, Quintana got into some trouble in the third when he loaded up the bases, but the right-hander narrowly escaped without damage. Quintana then allowed a two-run homer to Yasmani Grandal in the fifth, which would be his final blemish of the night. The 30-year-old was coming off 5.2 shutout innings against the Brewers last Friday at Wrigley Field. Over his last seven starts, Quintana is 5-1 with 47 strikeouts across 45.1 innings pitched. He'll look to defend a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP against the Padres in San Diego on Tuesday.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Bounces back with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (12-8) tossed 5.2 shutout innings while allowing four hits and two walks with three strikeouts, earning a victory against the Brewers on Friday.

The 30-year-old had a subpar outing his last time on the hill, but thanks in part to Friday's outing, he still had a great August, going 4-1 with a 2.02 ERA. In his only no-decision this month, Quintana posted a season-high 14 strikeouts, helping him record 39 punchouts in six August outings. Overall, he owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 137 strikeouts in 152.1 innings this season. Quintana will face the Brewers in a second straight start -- the next one on the road -- Thursday.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Lasts just four innings Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (11-8) lasted just four innings and took the loss in Saturday's 7-2 defeat by the Nationals. He struck out three and allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks.

Quintana was nicked for a first-inning run on an Anthony Rendon sacrifice fly but ran into bigger trouble in the third as the Nationals plated four runs on three singles and two walks. He was removed for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fourth after throwing 79 pitches. Quintana will carry a 4.05 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start, scheduled for Friday at Wrigley Field against the Brewers.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Blanks Pirates over seven innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (11-7) earned the win against Pittsburgh on Sunday, tossing seven scoreless innings and giving up five hits and no walks while striking out seven.

Quintana was at his best against the Pirates, throwing 63 of 92 pitches for strikes while allowing only five baserunners in seven innings. The southpaw has now won seven of his last nine starts and has not suffered a loss since June 22. He has been downright dominant in August, going 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 33:1 K:BB over 26 innings. Quintana will head back to Chicago to face the Nationals on Saturday in his next scheduled start.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Fans 14 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk across six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Phillies. He struck out 14.

Quintana posted one of his most dominant outings of the season, but unfortunately for the lefty, the Cubs only mustered two runs in a 4-2 loss and he could not earn his 11th win. The 14 strikeouts are a new season high and it's just the second time all year Quintana has even reached double figures in the category. He's put together three straight nice starts, allowing just four earned runs and striking out 26 across 19 innings in the stretch. Quintana will look to keep rolling his next time out Sunday against the Pirates on the road.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Cruises to 10th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (10-7) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits over seven innings while striking out seven in a 10-1 rout of the A's.

The southpaw was in control from the get-go, retiring the first nine batters he faced before a Marcus Semien double to lead off the fourth inning eventually led to Oakland's only run of the game. Quintana threw 60 of 94 pitches for strikes in his 12th quality start of the season, and he'll take a 4.23 ERA and 110:35 K:BB through 129.2 innings into his next outing Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Yields two runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (9-7) allowed two runs on seven hits with no walks and five strikeouts across six innings while capturing a victory over the Brewers on Friday.

The 30-year-old served up a homer to Ryan Braun, but that was the only run he yielded until the seventh. Quintana hasn't pitched that well lately, posting a 5.14 ERA in his last five starts, but he's 4-0 during that stretch. He owns a 4.40 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 103 strikeouts in 122.2 innings this season and will face the Athletics at home Wednesday in his next outing.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Fails to complete five Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana lasted just 4.2 innings and did not factor into the decision in Sunday's 11-4 win over the Brewers. He allowed three runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out three.

After four innings, it looked like Quintana was easily on his way to win No. 9, as he was staked to a 7-0 lead and had given up just one hit to that point. However, things unraveled in the fifth, as he allowed three hits and two walks before getting the hook with two outs in a game the Cubs needed badly after losing the first two in Milwaukee. Quintana will carry a 4.47 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled for Friday against the Brewers again.
