The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports the Angels are in agreement with free agent LHP Jose Quintana.
No word yet on the financials. Quintana was limited to just 10 innings during the 2020 season and hasn't been much of a fantasy factor for a couple of years. The Angels continue their trend of signing middle-of-the-rotation type arms as opposed to making a big splash with their rotation. Quintana won't enter the 2021 campaign with much fantasy value.
Jose Quintana started Tuesday's game against the Pirates, giving up one run over two innings. He allowed two hits, no walks, and struck out one. The Cubs lost, 3-2, on a walkoff homer by Jacob Stallings.
Quintana only tossed 34 pitches, since he's still ramping back up from his left lat injury. He should get another short stint against the White Sox this weekend, but he won't be fantasy relevant until 2021.
Jose Quintana, who's been on the IL since September 2nd with lat inflammation, will be activated on Tuesday and will start against the Pirates, per manager David Ross.
Ross added that Quintana will have "a little bit of a leash" in regards to his pitch count. The pitch limit caps his upside for streaming purposes, unfortunately. The left-hander has logged only six innings pitched this year with a 6.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a 9:2 K/BB ratio.
Jose Quintana (lat) is scheduled to throw in a simulated game on Saturday.
It sounds as if Quintana could return soon if Saturday's session goes well. He could wind up serving as a reliever during postseason play.
Jose Quintana, who's been on the IL with a lat injury since September 2nd, threw a successful bullpen on Monday and is in line for a simulated game as he works his way back, per Cubs manager David Ross.
Ross mentioned the left-hander should have another bullpen session on Wednesday and the next step after that, barring setbacks, would be a simulated game. He's a candidate to join the Cubs' bullpen once he's healthy enough to return. The 31-year old has a 6.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over six innings this season.
