The Angels have an agreement with the free-agent left-handed Jose Quintana, A physical pending, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic Report. This is a one-year, $ 8MM contract for a Wasserman client Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports.
Quintana was one of the most accomplished innings available in free agency, as the 31-year-old began his career in 2012, throwing 1,495 frames of 3.73 ERA / 3.99 SIERA balls between the White Sox and Cubs. Of course, a good part of Quintana’s career has been spent with Engels manager Joe Madon, who was the Cubs captain when he was the Southeastern pitch for the club from 2017-19. Madon was with the Angels last season, when Quintana missed most of the year with thumb problems. He played just one start and 10 innings in his final season in Chicago.
Last year’s injury issues look like an anomaly for Quintana, who entered the season with seven straight campaigns of 170-plus innings. This is the type of durability the Angels have lacked in recent years. They have struggled with a crown of injuries en route to their rotation en route for six straight seasons without a playoff berth, but a healthy Quintana could help change their fortunes in 2021.
Along with Quintana, the Angels feature Dylan Bundy, Andrew Henny And Griffin canning In the top four of their rotation the following season. Two sided player Shohi Ohtni And Jayam barya Too many starts for the club to take, although new general manager Perry Minassian may not be able to address that part of Engels’ roster.
