RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Quintana delivered another strong season of 200-plus innings, his fourth in a row. This time it finally resulted in more than nine wins -- a mark he'd been stuck on for three years running. He saw his home run rate inch upward, but maintained his solid strikeout and walk rates over a career-high 208 innings. He probably deserved even more than 13 wins, but he suffered an 0-7 record in a nine-start run from mid-May through June, during which he had five quality starts and only two real blowups. The only major change in approach from previous seasons was that he leaned on his fastball a career-high 66.5 percent of the time. Despite career bests in ERA and WHIP, there weren't enough gains from Quintana to believe it's some new level. He is a mid-3.00s ERA, 1.20s-WHIP pitcher, who is about as bankable of a 200-inning arm as is available.
Quintana is one of the more underrated pitchers in the American League. For the third consecutive season, he made more than 30 starts, threw more than 200 innings, and posted an ERA in the mid-3.00s. Most importantly for his home park, he keeps the ball out of the bleachers. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he failed to reach double-digit wins, and he failed to strike out a batter per inning. He should serve as the rotation’s No. 2 starter (behind Chris Sale) to open the season. And at age 27, his best years may lie ahead.
Quintana had the best season of his three-year career in 2014 even though he failed to get to a double-digit win total. He served as a capable No. 2 in the rotation behind Chris Sale for the entire season, and was the only member of the staff to go over 200 innings. One point of concern; his 5.1% HR/FB rate was about half of his 10.3% mark from the previous two seasons, so his ERA could be on the move in 2015 if the rate reverts. He should serve as the team's No. 3 starter in the upcoming year, with Jeff Samardzija coming aboard in the offseason.
One season removed from signing with the White Sox as a minor league free agent, Quintana became a 200-inning horse in 2013. His 33 starts ranked fourth in the American League, but a lousy White Sox offense supported him to all of nine wins even though he struck out nearly three times as many batters as he walked. His repertoire primarily consists of a fastball, curveball, cutter and changeup, and he can throw those pitches equally effectively against right- and left-handed batters. None of his pitches are dominant offerings, but he was able to keep his ERA below 4.00 from his second start until the end of the season, and that is good enough to place him as the White Sox's No. 2 or 3 starter as 2014 opens.
The White Sox quietly stole Quintana away from the Yankees' organization in November, and he was in the White Sox's rotation by late May. He posted a 2.04 ERA over his first 10 appearances, but a failure to miss bats resulted in a .317 BAA and 5.32 ERA over his final 66 frames. He should have the inside track for a spot toward the back of the White Sox's rotation to open 2013, although his job security may lessen if John Danks returns healthy and Gavin Floyd remains in the organization.
The White Sox added Quintana to their 40-man roster in November after he had spent five seasons in the Mets and Yankees organizations. He has a career 1.166 WHIP in 251.1 career minor league innings, which is more impressive when you consider he posted a 4.11 BB/9IP over that stretch. He possesses some deceptive secondary pitches, which could make him effective as a starter or left-handed specialist in the majors. He should start 2012 at Double-A Birmingham, with the potential to make the 25-man roster in 2013.
