Jose Quintana tossed six strong innings on the mound for the Cardinals Wednesday, allowing two runs on seven hits while also walking two and striking out six in the Cardinals' 9-5 win over the Rockies.
Quintana has been strong on the mound over his last five starts, posting a 3.67 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in that span. The veteran left-hander carries a 3.37 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 102 strikeouts in 22 starts (4-5) on the mound this season.
Jose Quintana lasted six innings on the mound for the Cardinals in the second game of a doubleheader Thursday, allowing one run on one hit while also walking two and striking out seven in the Cardinals' 7-2 win over the Cubs.
Quintana has allowed less than four runs in four of his last six starts, posting a 3.63 K/BB ratio in that span. The left-hander will look to solidify a St. Louis rotation that had many questions prior to the trade deadline, posting a 3.39 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 21 starts (3-5) on the mound this season.
Jose Quintana is set to join the Cardinals in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Quintana will now join the division rival Cardinals and provide them with another veteran option for their rotation. In 20 games (3-5) the 33-year-old has a 3.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, .251 OBA, and a 7.78 K/9 ratio. Quintana is likely set to join the rotation, so fantasy managers will want to await word on when his first start with St. Louis will be.
Jose Quintana allowed no runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 5 2/3 innings during Friday's 4-2 loss in extra innings to the Phillies.
Quintana (3-6) held Philadelphia in check and was in line for the win before the game was tied following the lefty's exit. For the second straight start, Quintana posted no earned, dropping his ERA to 3.50. As the trade deadline nears, the 33-year-old's name has been circulated, though it remains to be seen what Pittsburgh's management will decide.
Jose Quintana is rumored to be receiving trade interest from the Yankees and White Sox, as well as other teams, with the August 2 trade deadline looming according to Fansided's Robert Murray.
The Yankees and White Sox are both dealing with injuries on their respective staffs as both teams try and load up for the stretch run. New York is pacing the Majors at 66-32 and the White Sox are currently 3.0 games out of the third and final Wild Card spot in the American League. The Toronto Blue Jays are rumored to be another team interested in the left-handed services of Quintana. Any of these teams could also use him out of the bullpen as well, especially come playoff time. The Yankees and their potent offense and 66 wins offer the most upside for Quintana's fantasy managers.
