Indians' Cal Quantrill: Strong outing in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the White Sox, giving up only one hit and one walk over four scoreless innings. He struck out four.

Cleveland went with a bullpen game Tuesday, but the ultra-efficient Quantrill nearly qualified for a win on only 38 pitches (26 strikes) before handing things off to Adam Plutko. Quantrill has been sharp since being acquired from the Padres, posting a 1.54 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB in 11.2 innings over seven appearances, and he could be positioning himself for a chance to win a rotation spot in 2021.

Indians' Cal Quantrill: To open Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill will serve as the opener for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Quantrill figures to work only the first inning or two, considering he hasn't worked more than two frames since Aug. 15 against Arizona. Shane Bieber will have his start moved to Wednesday as a result.

Indians' Cal Quantrill: Traded to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill was traded from San Diego to Cleveland on Monday as part of the package for Mike Clevinger, Jeff Passan of reports.

Quantrill was at least a fairly interesting prospect, but he didn't have a spot in the Padres' rotation and certainly wouldn't after the acquisition of Clevinger. In 120.1 career innings at the big-league level, which includes 19 starts and 14 relief appearances, he owns a 4.79 ERA and a 4.23 FIP, striking out a modest 20.7 percent of opposing batters while walking 6.6 percent. Whether or not he'll immediately enter the rotation for his new team is unclear.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Operating in flex role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill won't start Friday's game against the Astros and will be available out of the bullpen this weekend, 97.3 The Fan reports.

The 25-year-old allowed one run over 3.2 innings during his start last Saturday, but he was twice utilized out of the bullpen this week to record one out -- including his first career save -- and he will continue to be deployed as a reliever. Manager Jayce Tingler said the team values Quantrill's versatility and trusts him in pretty much any spot, so it appears his role will shift as necessary throughout the season. Tingler also indicated the right-hander could make another start if he doesn't make a relief appearance within the next couple days.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Nabs first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill retired the only batter he faced via a flyball to record the save Tuesday at Texas.

The 25-year-old started Saturday's game and covered 3.2 innings, so it was a bit surprising to see him warming up in the ninth inning Tuesday with the Friars leading 6-4. Quantrill had no issues and needed only four pitches, so he could still make his next turn through the rotation Friday.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's contest between the Padres and the Diamondbacks. He allowed one run on five hits and one walk while fanning five across 3.2 innings.

Quantrill's first start of the season was a short-lived appearance, perhaps as expected considering he had come out of the bullpen in his three previous appearances, but he got the job done and kept his team in the game before departing with one out to go in the fourth inning. Quantrill has been effective with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in 12.1 innings this season, but he is expected to return to the bullpen soon.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill will start Saturday's game against Arizona, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Quantrill has been used in relief in his three appearances thus far this season, posting a 3.12 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 8.2 innings of work. He was a starter in 18 of his 23 appearances in his rookie campaign last year, struggling to a 5.16 ERA while striking out a modest 20.1 percent of opposing batters.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Dodgers. He tossed three scoreless innings, allowing two hits while fanning three.

Quantrill came out of the bullpen in the third inning and turned in an impressive outing against one of the best offenses in the National League. He was coming off an appearance where he allowed three runs in 4.1 innings against the Rockies on Aug. 1, but he bounced back admirably here while not issuing a walk for the first time this season.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Candidate for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill is in consideration for a starting assignment against the Dodgers on Monday or Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Quantrill battled Joey Lucchesi for the final rotation spot throughout spring training and summer camp, with Lucchesi ultimately winning the role. However, Lucchesi was sent to the team's alternate training site Thursday, opening the door for Quantrill to step in as a starter. The Padres have other potential options to fill the rotation spot, though, and they could also choose to go with a combination of relievers rather than a traditional starter, so Quantrill is far from guaranteed to be chosen for the role. In two appearances this season, the right-hander has allowed three earned runs while posting a 5:3 K:BB over 5.2 innings.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Iffy in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill pitched 4.1 innings versus the Rockies on Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four. He didn't factor into the decision.

Quantrill entered the game in the second inning after Joey Lucchesi worked himself into a jam. Both of Quantrill's appearances this season have come in relief of Lucchesi -- the duo seems to be working in tandem. The right-handed Quantrill has a 4.76 ERA and five strikeouts in 5.2 innings in 2020. A starter by trade, Quantrill is capable of picking up long assignments in relief. The results so far have been mixed in a small sample.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Vultures win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill (1-0) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one across 1.1 scoreless innings Monday against the Diamondbacks en route to his first win.

Quantrill, who is a starter by trade but was on the outside looking in on San Diego's rotation, is a logical pitcher to have follow the left-handed Lucchesi. The Padres will likely deploy Quantrill more often than every fifth day, but he could continue to vulture wins in this quasi piggyback role.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Role magnified in short season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill's swingman role will take on extra importance in the 60-game 2020 season, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Though Quantrill is not expected to open the season in the starting rotation, his ability to make spot starts could be critical given the uncertainty of the upcoming campaign. Even if he is used strictly out of the bullpen, the 25-year-old could find himself pitching multiple relief innings if a starter is pulled early, a scenario made more likely by the urgency of each game and the presence of a designated hitter in the National League. Quantrill was used primarily as a starter in his first big-league stint last season, compiling 5.16 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 103 total innings.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Could make squad as reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill could fill a swingman role out of the bullpen this season, AJ Cassavell of reports.

While Quantrill was battling Joey Lucchesi for the fifth spot in the starting rotation before the suspension of spring training, Lucchesi is considered the favorite for the role due to his considerable edge in experience. That could leave Quantrill to fill a role as a long reliever or spot starter as the Padres may be set on keeping him on the big-league roster after a strong spring in which the right-hander allowed only one run across seven Cactus League innings. Quantrill's likelihood of claiming a roster spot was no doubt boosted by the announcement that Andres Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery Friday and will be lost for the entire 2020 campaign.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Remains in mix for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill is battling Joey Lucchesi for the fifth spot in the Padres' rotation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lucchesi was expected to be a lock for a rotation spot entering the season but has struggled mightily in Cactus League play, opening the door for Quantrill to potentially fill the fifth-starter role. Quantrill has done his part to earn that honor, allowing only one run in seven spring innings while striking out nine. In his final start before the suspension of spring training, the right-hander hurled three scoreless and hitless innings and whiffed three batters against the Cubs.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Slated to pitch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill (illness) is scheduled to appear behind starter Dinelson Lamet in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Quantrill will be making his first appearance since covering two innings in the Padres' spring opener back on Feb. 22. After he missed nearly a week's worth of workouts while recovering from the flu, Quantrill resumed playing catch over the weekend and is now ready to test himself against hitters again. The right-hander remains in the mix for a spot in the Padres' Opening Day rotation, though veteran Zach Davies is the most likely candidate to secure the fifth starter's job.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Completes flat-ground session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill (illness) played catch over the weekend and is scheduled to toss a bullpen session Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Quantrill came down with the flu last week, but the illness doesn't look like it'll be anything that dramatically derails his preparation for the regular season. Assuming he comes out of the bullpen session feeling fine, Quantrill should advance to facing hitters in live batting practice before slotting back into the Cactus League rotation by the end of the week.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Battling flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill is out of action while he recovers from the flu, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

Manager Jayce Tingler described the ailment as "a 24-hour deal" and implied that Quantrill could throw again soon. The 24-year-old gave up one run in two innings while striking out four in his initial Cactus League appearance.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Taking hill for spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Jayce Tingler said that Quantrill will start the team's Cactus League opener Saturday versus the Mariners.

With the Padres acquiring Zach Davies in the offseason and Garrett Richards back healthy again after missing most of 2019 while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, Quantrill may find himself on the outside looking in for a spot in San Diego's Opening Day rotation. As AJ Cassavell of notes, Quantrill is a candidate to work as a swingman if he can't secure a rotation spot, so a strong showing in the Cactus League should help him win a spot on the 26-man roster in some capacity. As a rookie in 2019, Quantrill enjoyed a productive stretch in the middle of the season but faded badly in September, finishing his inaugural campaign with a 5.16 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over his 23 appearances (18 starts).

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Won't pitch again this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill will not pitch again this season, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The 24-year-old righty is likely dealing with soreness of some kind, as he logged 148 innings in the minors last year and has only thrown 138.2 innings this year between the majors and the minors. For what it's worth, the team says Quantrill is healthy, according to AJ Cassavell of, and that he will be firmly in the rotation mix next spring after logging a 5.69 ERA in 91.2 innings as a big-league starter in 2019. The Padres were working with a six-man rotation, so this may not result in anyone getting a spot start this weekend against the Diamondbacks.

Padres' Cal Quantrill: Yields one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quantrill did not factor into the decision against Arizona on Saturday, working five innings and giving up one run on two hits and no walks while striking out six.

The 24-year-old surrendered a leadoff triple that was cashed in for a run on a sacrifice fly, but he clamped down to retire 15 of the final 16 batters he faced before departing after the fifth inning. Quantrill entered the game having allowed 28 runs in 16.2 innings over his last four appearances, so Saturday's effective outing was a much-needed return to the form that saw him post a 1.69 ERA across four starts in July. Quantrill will look to end the season on a positive note when he heads to Arizona for a rematch against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
