Jose Quintana Excited to Get Cubs Career Started

Jose Quintana Excited to Get Cubs Career Started

The 27-year-old Gray has drawn interest from several teams, most recently the Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros.

Flete, Jimenez and Rose may be eligible to play Thursday night for the Winston-Salem Dash, the White Sox's High-A affiliate, when the club takes on the Pelicans in the second of a four-game set.

Wade Miley will make the start for the Orioles in Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana throws in the first inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., on June 6, 2017. Shields is owed $21 million both this season and next (with the San Diego Padres paying a large chunk), but he owns a 4.95 ERA through seven starts this season.

Starting pitching has struggled up and down the staff, from Arrieta to Hendricks.

The Cubs made the deal without moving any of their players on the 25-man current roster, which was their preference, said Epstein. "The overriding consideration was this core that we believe in and what we hope will be a long window of contention". Although Matt Rose and Bryant Flete are lower ranked prospects, the White Sox have successfully dealt Quintana on their terms.

The trade "was a little surprising in the beginning, but like I said at the beginning of the season too, you never know where you are going to find happiness", Jimenez said through a translator. "I think they're all professionals".

A year ago I wrote that I wasn't ready to see a Cubs-Sox World Series until the Cubs won one first. Our goal is to win more. South side management has been public about their disinterest to trade with their Windy City partners in the past, and it is evidenced by the fact that the last trade between those two teams happened in November of 2006. GM Rick Hahn has now turned Quintana, Chris Sale and Adam Eaton into a stable of prospects headlined by Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, Michael Kopech, Lucas Giolito and Reynoldo Lopez. He has a career 3.51 ERA - all achieved in the hitter-friendly American League.

Gray, 27, has started 13 games for the A's this season, posting a 4-4 record with a 4.00 ERA and 74 strikeouts over 78 2/3 innings of work. He hit 17 homers in 101 games last year and has 14 homers in 65 games this year.

The remaining control left on Quintana's contract will also help the Cubs deal with the expected departures of Arrieta and John Lackey this offseason. They deserved a world of credit.

But the truth is, we're three-and-a-half months into the season, and it's pretty clear that, without some sort of unforeseen revival, that rotation wasn't good enough to make the playoffs.

Jon Lester: Went 19-5 with a 2.44 ERA a year ago, and he can even pick off runners now. While Bell helped the White Sox to the 1993 AL West division title, Sosa would, for better or worse, become a big part of Cubs history over the following decade.
