BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2016 Entering 2015, Quintana didn't have a lot of hurdles left to clear in his quest to establish himself as a no. 2 starter. He needed mostly to be more consistent from one start to the next, and to get ahead of opposing hitters a bit more often. He went out and did both, posting just one Game Score south of 32 (and none south of 34 after April), turning in 25 Quality Starts, and throwing a strike on the first pitch against 68.9 percent of batters he faced. He threw his curveball at a career-high rate, and batters showed no sign of warming to it with the increased exposure. Quintana might be the best recovering minor-league free agent in baseball history.
2015 Teams spend millions and millions of dollars on efforts to scout, draft, acquire, develop and protect starting pitchers. Yet aside from the White Sox, it seems the entire baseball industry, fans and insiders alike, missed the boat on Quintana, who has gone from anonymous to one of the game's best left-handed starters in just three seasons. Thanks to the five-year, $21 million extension (with two very affordable option years) that he signed last offseason, he's one of the game's best bargains, too.

Quintana posted career-best marks in strikeout, walk and home run percentage in 2014 while a modest uptick in velocity across the board. He also further improved upon the success he had against right-handed hitters in 2013, holding them to a .243 TAv. Quintana threw his cutter and sinker less often and his changeup and curveball more often, and White Sox fan, BP scout and handsome man Mauricio Rubio refers to him as a "sequencing savant." We probably can't expect Quintana to limit hitters to just 10 bombs again, but even if regression strikes, the rest of his performance appears sustainable.

Look at Quintana's similarity scores, and you see names like Jon Lester, Matt Garza, David Price, Anibal Sanchez and whoa okay now let's just ignore Tom Gorzelanny. Does he have the raw talent of Lester or Price? No. But Quintana isn't the back-end starter many believed he'd be after his promising 2012 debut. He's a legitimate middle-of-the-rotation guy, and, as we saw in 2014, in his best years he's a strong no. 2. That's not bad for a minor-league free agent, especially if, unlike Ernie Johnson, you actually know what that term means.

2014 Common Wisdom held that big-league hitters had solved Quintana’s tricks down the stretch in 2012 and they would soon launch him back into the celestial miasma from which he had so suddenly appeared. However, an unfazed Quintana spent last season quietly telling Common Wisdom to get stuffed, working 200 solid innings and ranking among the most valuable pitchers in the American League. Quintana’s fastball clocked in a tick higher last year, his curveball had more bite and his changeup become a viable weapon against righties—all of which contributed to a much-improved strikeout rate. The young left-hander will never compete for Cy Young Awards, but as a viable third starter who won’t reach free agency until 2019 Quintana is a certifiable building block.
2013 Bursting onto the scene from nowhere, Quintana posted a 2.04 ERA through July 5, baffling hitters who saw his fastball, cutter, and curve combination for the first time. After the All-Star game, he had a 5.01 ERA as he allowed too many hits and homers, and even his previously great control slipped to merely average. It's his turn to make adjustments, and as he lacks the raw stuff to blow hitters away, his best chance to return to adequacy will be to find another trick to add to his bag. To that end, it's important to remember that he didn't get promoted to Double-A until 2012, so he may be more likely than most to find such useful tricks as he makes up some of the courses he skipped. Meanwhile, he has the confidence that comes from a string of successful outings, something many young pitchers never acquire.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-10-12 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is it Jose Quintana time?
(cowhitchurch from Austin, TX)
I guess you try to let Hendricks muddle through with the bases empty (now that Taylor killed that rally, am I right?) and if he gets out maybe give him another clean slate next inning, especially if you score some runs.

If he lets a few more guys on base though that has to be it, right? (Nick Schaefer)
2017-10-12 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can we confidently conclude Jose Quintana is great and very lovable as a player?
(Mike Musary from Illinois)
If anybody disagrees, not only should you dislike and distrust them, I think you can report them to the police for suspicious behavior. (Nick Schaefer)
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)I've been offered Jose Quintana in my fantasy league, but haven't been impressed thusfar. Would you buy low on him, or am I right to be concerned?
(Charles in Charge from Mom's Basement)
I'd buy. I've always liked Quintana, and you could get a sneaky wins bump if he gets traded (disregard if your league is smarter than most of mine and doesn't use wins). (Mike Gianella)
2017-04-05 23:00:00 (link to chat)Besides Tim Anderson, is there anyone on the Sox Opening Day roster than you think they will refuse to trade? I think it's a lock that Todd Frazier, Jose Quintana, Nate Jones, and David Robertson will all be dealt. I was on the fence about Abreu, thinking they want one vet to build the offense around + the Cuban connection with Moncada, but after the Anderson extension, I think Abreu might be shopped as well. What say you?
(Jonah from Redwood)
I think there's a pretty decent chance he's among that list of on-the-block players, yeah. It's an awfully tantalizing contract for a win-now team in need of some pop, and from Chicago's side he's a 30-year-old whose offensive output has declined each year he's been in the league and who isn't likely to be part of their next core. Kinda too balanced a situation to the interests on both sides for him to NOT get traded, yunno? (Wilson Karaman)
2017-04-11 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be the White Sox All-Star rep in 2017 and why will it be Leury Garcia?
(Beeps Lover from Manhattan)
The White Sox are the weirdest rebuilding team ever because they haven't finished selling and they're still littered with All Star-type guys. Given that a ton of pitchers initially selected back out and need replacement due to injury or timing of the game, pretty much any plus pitcher on the team is a candidate to go--Nate Jones, David Robertson, Jose Quintana if he's still on the team. Rodon starting on the DL probably rules him out.

Position player wise, 1B is stacked, but Jose Abreu should be a worthy candidate. Anderson could break out, Frazier has done it before...

So what I'm trying to say is Avisail Garcia. (Nick Schaefer)
2017-02-06 23:00:00 (link to chat)Eloy Jimenez+Jeimar Candelario for Jose Quintana -- who says no? (Frazier to a third-team to get the cubbies some sweeteners, if necessary). I assume it would be the cubs who'd keep this from happening, but would that be stupid of them? I get that eloy is a potential superstar, but the cubs have dynasty potential and Q seems like an ideal addition... Am I nuts?
(nkunke1 from wherever)
I don't think the Cubs would make that deal, no. From their standpoint they enter the year sitting on four very high-quality starters already, and with okay options between Montgomery and Anderson vying for the 5 slot. Eddie Butler was a nice little pickup for depth. I think they roll as-is and adjust accordingly in-season if and when need arises.

Dubwise time! Lee Perry, at the height of early Black Ark experimentation, working over a peak Wailers cut, because the world is a dark place right now, and we need light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH111yTNRTQ (Wilson Karaman)
2017-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)The top 2 SP mentioned on the market currently appear to be Chris Archer and Jose Quintana. What kind of production do you project for these 2 currently? And, how do you feel this could change with relocation to a stronger team, NL team, and/or better park? (In other words, do all arrows point up if they are traded?) Cheers...
(LoyalRoyal from Favorite Pizza Place)
Archer had a rough start, but he's basically Chris Archer. He's pretty great. The thing is, and I know this is a dangerous thing for a Serious Baseball Intellectual to say... I kind of like the Rays. I know PECOTA is biased in their favor, but I look at the lineup and especially the rotation and I can actually see a winning season.

As for Jose Quintana, there is probably no easier pitcher in baseball to project. He will do exactly as well as he did last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. Saying otherwise would be madness. Though given his recent flyball proclivities, and the current White Sox outfield defense, a move to any other team would probably be good for him. (Patrick Dubuque)
2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)On opening day Jose Quintana is playing for [blank] and he was traded for [blank].
(nschaef from Office)
On Opening Day Jose Quintana is playing for the White Sox and he was traded for no one.

...

On August 1, Jose Quintana is playing for the Astros and he was traded for Francis Martes and other pieces. (Bryan Grosnick)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Can you fix my real favorite team too? Seriously though, would you rather pick up Jose Quintana or Alfredo Simon in a 12-team mixed?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I don't have enough money.

Quintana, and that's a no brainer. Simon's first two starts looks pretty but that K/9 portends that he won't keep it up. (Mike Gianella)
2015-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Harry, I would love your thoughts on the seasons you anticipate from Kevin Gausman and Jose Quintana. I am keeping both in my keeper league as I see them both as strong SP4s, and perhaps a SP3, plus I have them for $4 and $3 (on a $260 budget). Thanks!
(Tony from Meridian)
I think Gausman steps forward, Quintana maybe not so much. Sounds like a good price for both, and Gausman is also 2 yrs younger and possesses some serious stuff. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-10-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a sucker for the boring good pitchers (e.g. Tanner Roark). Whose bandwagon should I hop on for 2015?
(ted from Chicago)
I recommend that you watch some Jose Quintana starts on MLB.tv this winter, while you're keeping warm next to the hot stove. Boring but solid, should be right up your alley. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 10 team mixed league with QS in place of W. Right now my starters are Strasburg, Sonny Gray, and Michael Pineda. I have an open roster spot I want to fill with another starter to give me a shot at competing in QS. I figure I might as well grab another long shot starter to join Gray and Pineda. I have it narrowed down to Danny Salazar, Jose Quintana, Taijuan Walker, or Roenis Elias. Who's my best bet?
(Kyle from Detroit)
Good god man, step away from Roenis Elias. Out of the options you listed, Quintana is the safest bet while Salazar provides the highest upside. If you're truly just going for QS, I guess I'd go Quintana. I like Salazar a bit more overall, though, even if he's overrated. Walker's injury scares me now, so I'm staying away. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Jose Quintana or Travis Wood in a 15 tm redraft with QS in place of W's
(artful dodger from Nice SN)
Give me Quintana at this point. It was the Twins, but 8 k's is a nice step forward for him. Consider this a vote for Don Cooper as much as Jose Quintana. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have I lost it? Or just tommy john rehab in progress!
(Danny duffy from Kc)
I wouldn't get nuts about the ST numbers. Look at Jose Quintana's and he just got a hot new deal (which I really like, btw). (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)16 team dynasty league. My current OF (3) is a combo of Leonys Martin, Wil Myers, BJ Upton, Nick Swisher, Mike Morse. Ive got an offer of George Springer for my Michael Wacha. Im up in the air on it as I think my rotation (Verlander, Teheran, Ian Kennedy, Chris Tillman, Jose Quintana and Ubaldo) can handle the loss but Im wondering how you see a deal like that shaking out long term? Springers hit tool worries me long term as I could see him being a .240 hitter which impacts his counting stats production as well. What do you see he and Wacha turning into?
(dzemens from Adrian, MI)
I think I would make that deal in a dynasty. Springer's average might never be great, but his power/speed combo in fantasy is enticing and a Raul Mondesi type wouldn't surprise me. I like Wacha a lot, but I see him as more of a 2/3 type than an ace. Springer might not be a top real life hitter but he could be in fantasy because of the speed. I'd make the deal. (Mike Gianella)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who from the following list of young 4th/5th starter talent types have the best chances at a solid 2013: Dan Straily, Jose Quintana, Joe Kelly, Drew Smyly, AJ Griffin, David Phelps, Erasmo Ramirez, and Patrick Corbin?
(Paul from DC)
I don't know if Kelly, Smyly, or Corbin will get a full slate of starts, I know Phelps won't. That leaves Griffin, Straily, Quintana, and Ramirez and I'd lean toward one of the first two. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these young starters has the best year in 2013: AJ Griffin, Matt Harvey, Drew Smyly, and Jose Quintana?
(Paul from DC)
I like Matt Harvey by a wide margin. He's easily got the best stuff of the bunch, and his debut was electric. Quintana/Smyly/Griffin are back of the rotation types and they lack the sizzle of Harvey. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)White Sox rookie lefty Jose Quintana pitched a decent 135 innings this year. But with a rate of only 5.3 k per 9, what is there to like about his stuff?
(Paul from DC)
Quintana is the atypical left-hander, as he's a ground ball guy without a changeup to keep RHBs off his fastball. He throws a lot of breaking balls -- about half and half slider and curveballs -- and mixes 2-3 different fastballs; some sink and tail, hence the 47% ground ball rate. He's the perfect back-end guy for the White Sox, but when he struggles with command, his home park is going to bite him. So the answer to the questions is 'not a lot,' as he must rely on his defense, deception and changing location and speeds to have success. (Jason A. Churchill)
