Quintana (2-1) pitched seven shutout innings while allowing four hits and two walks while striking out four to earn the win Friday against the Rangers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

For the third time in four starts, the White Sox provided Quintana with at least four runs, which is something that happened infrequently in 2015. He's yet to give up more than two earned runs in any of his starts so far, and he lowered his ERA to 1.82 this month. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Blue Jays.

Quintana (1-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits over six innings Sunday, striking out six, but took the loss as the White Sox fell 3-2 to the Rays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As has been the story of his career, Quintana was effective but didn't get the run support he needed to pick up a win. He now has a 2.55 ERA and strong 18:3 K:BB through 17.2 innings and three starts, but faces a potentially tough matchup Friday at home against the Rangers.

Quintana (1-0) won his first game of the season Monday, holding the Twins to one run on four hits. He struck out five and walked three in the start.

Quintana will make his next start Monday against the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sunday's rainout of the White Sox's series finale witht the Indians resulted in Quintana missing out on a two-start week, but he'll have another one tap with turns lined up against the Twins on Monday and the Rays on either Saturday or next Sunday. The lefty turned in a typical steady, but not spectacular performance in his season debut this past Tuesday against the Athletics, scattering seven hits over 5.2 innings while allowing two runs and striking out seven.

Quintana took a no-decision Tuesday against the Athletics as he allowed two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out seven and didn't walk a batter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Quintana threw first-pitch strikes to 19 of 24 batters and induced 12 swinging strikes. The Athletics weren't hitting him hard, either, as he induced five grounders against five fly balls and allowed just two extra-base hits, both doubles, against five singles. Quintana is rarely overpowering, but when he controls the strike zone, he can be very effective, and he would have taken home the win Tuesday night had the White Sox bullpen held up its end.

Quintana held the Mariners to two runs (one earned) on two hits in six innings Friday, striking out seven.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Quintana has only made three Cactus League starts, but Friday's was the longest and best of the three. He now has a 13:2 K:BB over those three starts, and he looks primed to open the season as Chris Sale's sidekick.

Quintana currently projects as the White Sox's No. 2 starter, the team's official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manager Robin Ventura has yet to officially announce the order of his rotation, but the spring training scheduling suggests Quintana will follow Chris Sale. Quintana has served as a steady hand in the middle of the White Sox's rotation the past few seasons, consistently starting at least 30 games, throwing 200 innings, and posting ERA's in the mid-3.00's. That streak should continue into 2016.

Quintana was fantastic on Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks across nine innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

All three of the runs allowed came in via the long ball and that's a bit strange, as he's allowed just 16 prior to this game all season. The lefty has finished his season incredibly strong, as he gone 36 innings over his last five starts, while allowing just six runs in that span. Quintana always seems to be undervalued in drafts and that may be the case yet again next year, as his season numbers are very good but not spectacular. The southpaw finished with a 3.36 ERA and and 1.27 WHIP in 32 starts this season.

Quintana surrendered eight hits, an earned run and a walk over seven innings on Tuesday against the Tigers. He struck out five but did not factor into the decision.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Quintana continued his outstanding September, although he failed to factor into the decision for a second consecutive quality start. The young southpaw gave up only one earned run for the third consecutive start and once again displayed sharp control, yielding only one free pass for the second straight appearance. Quintana brought his ERA to a new season low of 3.38 and is sporting an impressive 1.67 BB/9 rate in four September starts, a marked improvement over the 1.96 figure in that category he entered the month with.
