The Los Angeles Angels, desperate to add pitching, agreed to a one-year, $ 8 million contract with veteran left-hander Jose Quintana confirmed by ESPN on Tuesday.
Quintana, previously with the Chicago Angels under current Angels manager Joe Maddon, was limited to only 10 innings in 2020 because of thumb surgery. Earlier, the 31-year average was 32 starts from 2013 to 2019, with a 3.23 ERA with a 3.23 strike-to-walk ratio.
Quintana joins a rotation that includes Andrew Henney, Dylan Bundy, Griffin Canning and potential Shohe Ohtani, slotting somewhere near the top.
Quintana stands as the fifth one-year addition made by first-year general manager Perry Minassian, followed by shortstop Jose Iglesias, Raisel Iglesias, close Kurt Suzuki and lefty reliever Alex Claudio. They will combine to make $ 23.25 million in 2021.
