Quintana is scheduled to make his first appearance Apr. 8 against the Royals, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

With Chris Sale (foot) out for the first portion of the regular season, it was between Jeff Samardzija and Quintana for the Opening Day start. Unfortunately for Quintana that accolade went to Samardzija so Quintana is currently listed as third in the rotation heading into the regular season.

Quintana (9-11) wrapped up his season on a harsh note Thursday, giving up five runs on 11 hits over 7.1 innings against the Royals. He struck out seven without a walk.

Quintana ends his 2014 campaign with strong numbers -- a 3.32 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 178:52 K:BB -- and his second consecutive 200-inning season. He's established himself as a solid No. 2 starter for the White Sox, and if his strikeout rate keeps climbing (as it has the last two years), he could become more than that.

Quintana tossed a strong 7.1 innings in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rays, allowing three runs (one earned) on nine hits while recording six strikeouts.

After a mostly frustrating August, Quintana has been nothing short of dominant this month. So far, through three starts in September, the 25-year-old lefty has put up an outstanding 1.33 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 11.5 K/9. Quintana is scheduled to complete his 2014 campaign Wednesday afternoon in Detroit.

Quintana struck out seven and walked one while giving up one run on seven hits over six innings Saturday against Cleveland.

He did not factor in the decision, however, as the White Sox only managed to plate an unearned run against Corey Kluber. Quintana will take the ball against the Twins at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday in his next scheduled start.

Quintana was charged with six runs on nine hits over five innings but didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 8-6 loss.

Quintana has begun to backslide in his last three outings, giving up at least four runs in each time out. The six runs allowed Tuesday tied his season-high and extended the lefty's winless streak to five games.

Quintana (6-10) lost his third straight start Tuesday vs. the Orioles, giving up four runs on eight hits over six innings. He struck out three batters and didn't walk a batter in the outing.

Quintana deserves a far better fate than the won-loss record would indicate, as his ERA remains a shiny 3.25 (2.84 FIP) on the season, despite three middling outings in a row. With a 21-23 record and sub-3.50 ERA over his 80 career starts, there might not be a pitcher in baseball over the last three seasons who has been more frequently victimized by a lack of run support and his bullpen blowing leads.

Quintana allowed four runs on four hits and two walks in 6.2 innings of work Wednesday to take his ninth loss of the season.

Quintana had actually thrown 6.1 scoreless innings to start the game, but the floodgates opened after a controversial call at the plate resulted in a seven-run seventh (four of which were charged to Quintana). Quintana is enjoying the best season of his three-year career (126 ERA+, 3.14 ERA, 21.2 percent K-rate), but it looks like he will fall short of 10 wins yet again thanks to a creaky bullpen and inconsistent offense.

Quintana will move up in the White Sox's rotation and will make his next start Wednesday in San Francisco,'s Scott Merkin reports.

Quintana was originally slated to pitch Friday at home against the Blue Jays, but he will now go a couple days earlier and still pitch on normal rest. Quintana will still get just one start this week, but moving up a couple days means he will likely throw twice in the next scoring period.

Quintana (6-8) picked up the loss on Friday facing the Mariners as he gave up four runs (two earned) on seven hits in 5.2 innings pitched, while striking out four hitters.

It wasn't a horrible outing by any means for Quintana, but he did miss a quality start by just one out. Since June 19, Quintana has put together an amazing run of starts in which nine of the 10 he allowed only two earned runs or less. Quintana needs to cut down on the walks to take the next step in his development.
