Sox's Quintana ‘feels great’ despite big workload
CHICAGO – White Sox starting pitcher Jose Quintana is in uncharted territory.
The rookie left-hander, who signed as free agent in the offseason after his release from the New York Yankees, has become one of the Sox’s most reliable starters. However, Quintana, 23, never logged more than 102 innings in any season during his eight years in the minor leagues.
Quintana added to his career-high innings total (110) during Saturday’s 5-4 win against the Seattle Mariners. He tossed 52⁄3 innings, although he was lucky to last that long. The Mariners forced Quintana to throw 42 pitches in the first inning and tagged him for three runs – a three-run homer by Justin Seager – as Seattle batted around. Quintana walked four in the first but limited the damage by forcing Brendan Ryan to fly out to end the inning, leaving the bases loaded.
