Quintana (5-3) surrendered eight hits and four earned runs over 6.1 innings in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Royals. He struck out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The talented southpaw ran into some difficulties as the game went on, and received precious little run support from his offense. Quintana wasn't bad overall-- throwing 63 of 91 pitches for strikes and securing first-pitch strikes on 18 of 26 hitters-- but the third inning was his undoing. The White Sox starter surrendered RBI doubles to Paulo Orlando and Lorenzo Cain, along with a run-scoring single to Kendrys Morales during the frame. The 27-year-old has seen his ERA rise after his last two starts, during which he's surrendered 13 hits and six earned runs over 13.1 innings. However, Quintana has also notably received only two runs combined from Chicago bats during that span. He'll face off with Corey Kluber and the Indians in his next start on Wednesday.

Quintana (5-2) (finger) surrendered five hits, two earned runs and two walks over seven innings in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees. He struck out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The crafty southpaw got into some early trouble, allowing an RBI double to Aaron Hicks and RBI single to Didi Gregorius. However, he was sharp otherwise, throwing 70 of 100 pitches for strikes, and recording first-pitch strikes on 20 of 27 batters. He completed seven innings for the third straight start, and is still sporting a stellar 1.54 ERA. Quintana has certainly pitched well enough to win every start this season, and has notably received only three total runs of support over his two defeats.

Quintana twirled seven innings of one-run ball Sunday, giving up six hits and one walk to go with five strikeouts during a 3-1 win against the Twins. In the aftermath of the game, though, he relayed that he dealt with a finger cramp, Scot Gregor of of the Daily Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The performance whittled down Quintana's ERA on the season to 1.38, which he's supplemented with a 5-1 record, 0.99 WHIP, and 42:9 K:BB in 45.2 innings through seven starts. While the injury scare isn't expected to affect his next nod Saturday against the Yankees in New York, it'll be something to keep in eye on as the game approaches.

Quintana allowed just one run on four hits with five strikeouts over eight innings in a win Tuesday over the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Quintana had faced the minimum until Hanley Ramirez took him deep in the fifth inning. Ramirez would be the only runner to get past first base against Quintana. Nearly two-thirds of Quintana's strike zones went for a strike not in play (called strike, swinging strike or foul ball). That meant Quintana was pitching ahead in the count almost the whole night, and as a result he was able to quiet the Red Sox despite inducing just four swinging strikes.

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.

His next start will come Sunday against the Rays.

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.
