White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana started this afternoon against the A’s and here’s how things went for him:
That’s nine batters faced, all of whom reached base and, while this part isn’t totally Quintana’s fault, all of whom came around to score. So … nine runs allowed and no outs recorded.
Quintana was really good last season, starting 33 games with a 3.51 ERA, but even before today’s disastrous outing he had a 16.50 ERA in three games this spring. And now his ERA stands at a ridiculous 30.00, which is 20 runs allowed and 18 outs recorded.
These games don’t count for anything, but that’s extreme enough to make the White Sox worried, I’d imagine.
