Cubs' Jose Quintana: Logs two innings in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (lat) started and allowed one run on two hits across two innings in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates. He struck out one.

Quintana was returning from the injured list and had last pitched Aug. 30, so the Cubs were understandably cautious with the lefty. He tossed 34 pitches in the outing and now has a 5.63 ERA for the season. Quintana is slated to start the final regular season game Sunday against the White Sox, so it doesn't look like he'll be a rotation option for the first round of the playoffs, but he could become a factor if Chicago is able to advance.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Activated and starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (lat) was activated from the injured list Tuesday ahead of his scheduled start against the Pirates.

Quintana missed the start of the season due to thumb surgery and made just two appearances before being sidelined with lat inflammation. He threw just three innings in both of those games, and he's unlikely to go particularly deep in this one as he hasn't pitched in over three weeks.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Slated to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (lat) will be activated from the 10-day injured list and start Tuesday against the Pirates, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Quintana has made just two appearances during his injury-riddled 2020 campaign, and he'll make his first start of the season Tuesday. Manager David Ross said that he'd have "a little bit of a leash" on his pitch count in his return to game action. If the Cubs continue to use him as a starter to end the regular season, the southpaw would line up to start the season finale on the road Sunday against the White Sox.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Returning early next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (lat) will be activated at some point during the Cubs' upcoming series in Pittsburgh, which runs from Monday through Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Quintana has been limited to just two relief appearances all season, first due to thumb surgery and now due to lat inflammation. He'll have time to return in the final week of the season but will likely be limited to bullpen duty.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (lat) will throw a simulated game Saturday and could return to game action soon, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Quintana threw bullpen sessions Monday and Wednesday, and Saturday's simulated game could be one of his final hurdles prior to returning to the active roster. Manager David Ross said Friday that Quintana is "extremely close" to rejoining the team. The southpaw will likely work out of the bullpen upon his return.

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

Quintana (lat) threw a bullpen session Monday and will throw another one Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Assuming Quintana's inflamed left lat continues responding well, he's expected to participate in a simulated game later in the week. He won't have time to build up to a starter's workload by the end of the year but has a chance to be activated in a bullpen role.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Responding well to treatment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cubs manager David Ross said that Quintana (lat) could begin a throwing program as soon as Tuesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Since being shut down last week with inflammation in his left lat muscle, Quintana has apparently responded well to treatment. After getting another day of rest Monday, Quintana will be re-evaluated Tuesday, at which point the Cubs could clear him to start playing catch again. With another injured starter in Tyler Chatwood (forearm) on track to begin a throwing program Monday, Quintana may have to settle for a bullpen role once he's reinstated from the IL for a second time this season.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Out with lat inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with left lat inflammation, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Quintana presumably suffered the injury during Sunday's contest, as he pitched three innings of one-run relief after Tyler Chatwood (forearm) left with an injury. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it's poor timing for the Cubs given Chatwood's injury and the upcoming doubleheader this weekend. Adbert Alzolay is a likely candidate to enter the rotation in the meantime.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Strikes out six in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana pitched three innings of one-run ball in relief in Sunday's 10-1 win against the Reds. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out six.

Quintana has now pitched exactly three innings in each of his two relief appearances this season, and he looked sharper Sunday, particularly with the six strikeouts. The lefty should reenter the rotation at some point, and that could happen Saturday when the Cubs play a doubleheader against the Cardinals. He could have an extended leash as a stater, particularly if the elbow injury Tyler Chatwood sustained while starting Sunday's game results in him getting shut down.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Allows three runs in 2020 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) allowed three earned runs on four hits and a walk across three innings in a relief appearance Tuesday against the Tigers. He struck out three.

Quintana's 2020 debut was delayed due to undergoing microscopic surgery in early July to repair a left thumb laceration, and the lefty looked understandably rusty in this one. He was at least able to log 55 pitches after only throwing 28 in a simulated game Friday. The Cubs are getting him up to speed out of the bullpen initially, but Quintana should be expected to start at some point. When he does move into the rotation, Alec Mills will likely shift to a long-relief role.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Activated, could pitch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Per Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Quintana could piggyback Tyler Chatwood in this start as he works in a long-relief role until he is fully stretched out. Once the Cubs feel he is ready, there should be a spot in the rotation waiting for him.

August 24, 2020 05:08 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Bound for bullpen initially
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) will join the Cubs' bullpen upon activation from the injured list Tuesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The Cubs will welcome Quintana back after a left thumb laceration delayed his start to the season. However, Quintana only threw 28 pitches in his simulated game last Friday and the team will have him contribute out of the bullpen initially, with an eye toward possibly starting one game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds. Alec Mills and Adbert Alzolay will also be candidates for one half of the twin bill, if Quintana needs additional time to build up.

August 23, 2020 08:20 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Ready for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cubs manager David Ross said Saturday that Quintana (thumb) is "pretty much ready to return" and that the team is in the process of figuring out where he fits in, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Quintana has been rehabbing since early July after he underwent microscopic surgery to repair a left thumb laceration. It was originally presumed that he would start out of the bullpen upon being activated after the Cubs' starting rotation got off to a blistering start to the season. However, with Tyler Chatwood (back) still not cleared to return and Alec Mills coming back down to earth (six earned runs in 3.2 innings Wednesday), Quintana may have a shot at returning to the rotation after all. The southpaw is currently one of four options to start Tuesday's game in Detroit as Ross has yet to confirm a starter for that day. If Quintana does receive the starting nod Tuesday, he would likely face a limited workload after tossing only two innings (28 pitches) in his most recent simulated game Friday.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Completes simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) threw a 28-pitch simulated game Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old was already ruled out for the weekend series against the White Sox, but the light simulated game could allow him to rejoin the rotation Tuesday at Detroit. Manager Joe Ross indicated the team will wait to see how Quintana responds after Friday's session before officially determining his next step.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Unavailable for weekend series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) will throw at least one more simulated game and won't be available for the weekend series against the White Sox, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Quintana is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, and pitching coach Tommy Hottovy said that his next appearance could be with the major-league club. However, manager David Ross said Tuesday that the left-hander will require at least one more simulated game, which would make him unavailable for the upcoming series against the White Sox. Quintana could return to the rotation if his sim game goes well.

August 18, 2020 03:44 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Throwing bullpen Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Quintana threw a four-inning simulated game Sunday, and that apparently went well since he's throwing a bullpen session just two days after. The southpaw has progressed smoothly through his rehab process, but it's still unclear when he could return to the major-league club. Assuming his bullpen goes well Tuesday, he could be in line for another sim game, but pitching coach Tommy Hottovy didn't rule out a return to the rotation prior to another sim game, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. If Tyler Chatwood (back) is unable to return from the 10-day injured list in a timely manner, Quintana's 2020 debut could come sooner rather than later.

August 15, 2020 09:52 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Another sim game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) is scheduled to throw a four-inning simulated game Sunday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Quintana played catch prior to Saturday's game against the Brewers, and he'll continue to build his strength back up with a four-inning session at the alternate training site Sunday. The southpaw hasn't had any issues recently. Although no timetable for his return has been announced, he could be back soon if Sunday's sim game goes well.

August 12, 2020 04:32 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Sim game goes well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) didn't have any issues during his three-inning simulated game Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Manager David Ross said Wednesday that Quintana's thumb wasn't an issue during his most recent throwing session. However, Ross said that there still isn't a timeline for the southpaw's return. He's progressed consistently throughout his recovery process, but the team appears to be building his workload back up. While the Cubs haven't revealed how they plan to use Quintana once he joins to the major-league club, the team's commitment to build him up prior to his return suggests that he could rejoin the starting rotation.

Cubs' Jose Quintana: Set for sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) will throw three innings in a simulated game Tuesday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

The southpaw continues to work his way back from thumb surgery. He threw 35 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and should throw roughly 50 on Tuesday. He appears to be preparing to handle a starter's workload, though the Cubs haven't ruled out using him in a relief role, which could potentially see him back in action soon but which would almost certainly hurt his fantasy value.

August 6, 2020 05:52 PM
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Throws 35 pitches Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quintana (thumb) threw a 35-pitch simulated game Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Quintana has been working his way back from thumb surgery, and Thursday's throwing session was an encouraging development as he was able to utilize his entire four-pitch repertoire. The southpaw is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, and he could return to the majors shortly after if all goes well. Quintana's role once he heads back to the big leagues hasn't yet been defined. A bullpen role hasn't been ruled out, but if he indeed claims a spot in the starting rotation, Tyler Chatwood or Alec Mills could serve in a long relief role.
