First pitcher off the board: Cubs acquire Jose Quintana

Share

This is the first trade between the cross-town rivals since the White Sox sent Neal Cotts to the Southside in exchange for David Aardsma and Carlos Vasquez on November 16, 2006.

The Chicago White Sox announced today that they have traded 28-year-old ace pitcher José Quintana to the fucking Chicago Cubs, who are basically worse than the St. Louis Cardinals at this point.

However, such a deal comes as no surprise as Quintana has served as one of the more notable trade chips from around the league this season.

Jimenez and Cease - as well as other acquisitions in this deal, first baseman Matt Rose and infielder Bryant Flete - accomplished White Sox general manager Rick Hahn's goal of replenishing the farm system by trading one of his team's top assets.

The 28-year-old is the first big name off the market in July, as the Major League Baseball trading deadline is just over two weeks away.

The White Sox have been trying to trade Quintana since the trade deadline previous year, but were in "no rush" to trade him as they wanted to wait for someone to meet their asking price. Jiménez was recently ranked fifth in the sport by Baseball America while Cease was considered second-best in the Cubs' organization. Quintana has scuffled with a 4.49 ERA with only four wins but has struck out 109 and walked 40 in 104.1 innings. Quintana has recorded four straight seasons of 200-plus innings and carries a career 3.51 ERA.

This might have been a high price for the Cubs to pay, but they definitely felt like they needed an upgrade in the rotation. Jimenez, 20, is batting.271 (42-for-155) with six doubles, eight home runs and 32 RBI in 42 games with Single-A Myrtle Beach this season.

The 22-year-old Rose is hitting.227 with 14 homers and 38 RBIs in 65 games at Class-A Myrtle Beach this season.
