Quintana was handed his ninth loss of the season Sunday against the Cubs, allowing three runs on eight hits in 7.1 innings. He struck out nine and did not walk a batter.

The quality start was the lefty's eighth in a row, but it was not enough on the day, as the White Sox scored just once on opposing starter Jake Arrieta. Quintana has a solid 3.69 ERA despite his 4-9 record and is scheduled to start Saturday against the Royals.

Quintana gave up two runs on four hits and zero walks while striking out eight over eight innings Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

This was Quintana's eighth straight start allowing three runs or fewer while pitching at least six innings, but he is just 2-3 during that stretch. Run support, or lack thereof, has contributed to Quintana being one of the more underrated starting pitchers in both real life and fantasy. At one point in the fourth and fifth inning he struck out five straight and retired 10 straight over one stretch. Quintana will take the ball Sunday against the Cubs in the final game of the first half.

Quintana (4-7) gave up a run on six hits and struck out eight in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Cardinals.

Quintana won for the first time in four starts. With Wednesday's win, the lefty has now worked at least six innings for the 10th straight time, none of the starts lasting longer than seven innings. He'll look to make it two in a row when he next takes the mound Tuesday against Toronto.

Quintana allowed three runs on 11 hits, he did not walk a batter, and struck out three over six innings, but was left with a no-decision against Detroit on Friday night.

Quintana (3-7, 3.95) has three no-decisions in five June starts as he generally continues to log modest outings, while receiving some of the worst run support in the American League. The White Sox haven't been an offensive force despite playing their home games in a hitter's haven, and Quintana has allowed more than a hit an inning which could be very problematic when the ball starts flying.

Quintana was solid Sunday against the Rangers, allowing just two runs while striking out five and walking two in seven innings. He did not factor in the decision as the game was decided in extra innings.

The lefty allowed both runs via solo home run, but was otherwise very effective and limited the Texas offense, lowering his season ERA to 3.92. Quintana has now thrown five consecutive quality starts and will look to extend his streak Friday against the Tigers.

Quintana gave up three runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six in six innings in Tuesday's 0-3 loss to the Pirates.

After getting some run support en route to wins in his last two starts, Quintana's teammates went back to being cold on days where he takes the ball. In April and May the White Sox scored one run or less six times when Quintana's spot in the rotation was up, and Tuesday's start added a seventh such start to the mix this season. While he does not have the ceiling of a No. 1 or No. 2 starter, Quintana might be a solid buy-low candidate, as he has pitched better over the last couple months than his numbers indicate, and he does not carry much name value so the price could be low in a trade.

Quintana (3-6) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings Wednesday against the Astros. He walked two and struck out three.

Entering Wednesday, Quintana was getting 2.67 runs of support per game from the Chicago offense and had not won since May 13. The White Sox scored four runs Wednesday and helped Quintana win for the first time in his last five starts. He'll try to make it two in a row in his next scheduled start Tuesday at Pittsburgh.

Quintana struck out four and walked two while giving up three runs on nine hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday night.

The White Sox went on to win the game in extra frames, so the quality start certainly helped matters on a night where the wind was blowing out at U.S. Cellular Field. Quintana has almost completely maintained the increased strikeout rate that he delivered a year ago, having struck out 20.7% of the batters he's faced in 2015. Thanks to a slightly elevated BABIP (.345 this season, career .305), and the second straight season with a LOB% below 70.0%, he's pitched to an ERA (4.28) than is more than a run above his FIP (3.25). Quintana gets a strikeout-friendly matchup against the Astros at home Wednesday for his next scheduled start.

Quintana was the hard-luck loser Saturday, giving up just one run on five hits and four walks over 6.1 innings, striking out seven.

Unfortunately for him and for the White Sox, Dallas Keuchel was busy spinning an 11-K shutout for the Astros, so even one run was one too many for Quintana to allow. He's recorded a quality start in three of his last four outings, and the lefty will look for a better outcome in his next trip to the mound, at home on Friday against the Tigers.

Quintana was rocked in a loss on Sunday, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk in six innings against the Twins. His record fell to 2-5 on the season.

The lefty simply made too many mistakes on the day, as he gave up a total of four runs via two Brian Dozier home runs and got into trouble in the fourth inning, when he allowed three more runs after Minnesota scored on an error. Quintana had delivered quality starts in four of his previous five outings, and will have a decent chance to rebound in a matchup with the Astros on Friday.
