Jose Quintana was shelled for five runs in five innings Saturday as the White Sox fell to the Rangers.

The Rangers got to him for nine hits -- including a homer and three doubles -- and gave him his first loss of the season. He will try to bounce back next week in Detroit.

Jose Quintana cruised to his first win of the season Tuesday, holding the Rockies to two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Quintana received more than enough run support to make the effort stand up, as White Sox hitters pounded out 19 hits and 15 runs behind him. Quintana's shaky spring seems to be behind him at this point, as he's got a 2.77 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through two starts. He'll look to keep the ball rolling Sunday against the Indians.

Jose Quintana yielded five runs -- two earned -- in six innings and struck out eight against the Twins on Thursday.

A lackadaisical play from Jose Abreu in a rundown cost Quintana in the third, as the Twins went on to score three times in the inning, with all the runs being unearned. That's not to let Quintana completely off the hook for that inning, but outside of that, he was pretty good. As rough as the beginning of his spring was, it rated as another pretty encouraging showing.

Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that the White Sox have signed Jose Quintana to a five-year extension.

The guaranteed money in the deal is contingent on whether Quintana qualifies for Super Two status. If he does accrue enough service time, the five-year contract will be worth $26.5 million. If he does not, it'll be worth $21.5 million. Quintana, 25, posted a 3.51 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 164 strikeouts in 200 innings last season for the Pale Hose. His new extension also carries a $10.5 million club option for 2019 and an $11.5 million club option for 2020.

Jose Quintana turned in his finest start of the Cactus League season, allowing just one hit over five scoreless innings against the Rockies.

This marked the first time in five spring outings that he survived past the third inning. He insists that he's fine physically and will be ready for the regular season, and Sunday's start was a nice step in that direction.

Jose Quintana said after getting pummeled Tuesday that he feels "real good" and he'll be "ready" once the season begins.

Quintana failed to record an out during his start against the A's, allowing nine runs on seven hits and two walks. He holds a 30.00 ERA over four spring starts but insists that he's fine physically (he was hit on the shin by a liner in his second outing). The White Sox also don't seem to be concerned, as manager Robin Ventura noted that Quintana's "velocity is there," but he appeared to just be "a little flat."

Jose Quintana did not record an out during Tuesday's start against the A's, allowing nine runs on seven hits and two walks before being taken out of the game.

Quintana's day went double, single, three-run home run, walk, walk, double, single, single, triple. CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes says that scouts didn't see anything noticeably wrong with Quintana, other than that he was "a tick jumpy". Chalk it up to a bad day and hope he can turn things around before the end of spring training.

Jose Quintana was diagnosed with a left shin contusion and is considered day-to-day.

He was removed from Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks after just two hitters when he was struck by a line drive off the bat of Gerardo Parra. He appears to have avoided any significant injury though and should be good to go for his next trip through the rotation.
