GLENDALE, Ariz. – White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana was hit in the shin by a line drive Saturday and removed from the Sox’s 6-4 loss to an Arizona Diamondbacks split squad after only two batters.

The left-hander gave up a leadoff single to A.J. Pollock, then Gerardo Parra lined one off Quintana’s left leg. The Sox said Quintana was diagnosed with a bruised shin and is day to day.

Quintana, who walked off the field, said he does not expect to miss a spring start.

Pollock later homered and Brandon McCarthy went five innings for the Diamondbacks, giving up two runs and six hits.

Tuffy Gosewisch’s two-run double in the ninth off Deunte Heath broke a 4-all tie.
