Jose Quintana Excited to Get Cubs Career Started

The Chicago White Sox dealt pitcher Jose Quintana across town to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for four minor leaguers including Eloy Jimenez, who is considered one of the best hitting prospects in baseball. Additionally, the Cubs have hopes that Gray can help turn their season around and make them a championship caliber team again.

Two of the four players the Sox received in the deal are elite prospects - outfielder Eloy Jimenez and right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease.

With ZiPS projecting every Cubs starter, including Quintana, to perform closer to their established norms, this is the kind of rotation that can match up with any in baseball - including the Clayton Kershaw-led Dodgers and Corey Kluber-fronted Indians.

Jake Arrieta: Won the NL Cy Young in 2015 and led the Majors in hits per nine past year. There is definitely a chance the Cubs catch the Brewers with the addition of Quintana, but he is under club control through 2020.

Parilli was the fourth overall pick by the Green Bay Packers in 1952. He was also named to the All-AFL 10 Year Anniversary Team in 1971.

The Cubs' "core" includes players such as Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber and Ian Happ. "I think we've had two very fine drafts". As the defending World Series champion Cubs pulled off a 9-8 win over the Orioles. You can read into the fact that this trade was made without touching the major-league team at all. The weekend offers an opportunity for Seattle (43-47) to move on from a disappointing end to the first half. The White Sox got Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech in the trade that sent Sale to the Boston Red Sox, and they also got Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez from the Washington Nationals in the Eaton trade. In 36 career minor league games (33 of them as the starter) he has a rock solid 2.54 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP, 12.3 K/9 rate, and he has lowered his walk rate each year to a 4.5 BB/9 rate so far in 2017. He has a career 3.51 ERA and fills an immediate and long-term need for the Cubs as they're short on starting pitching. "There's that little thing going on when you show up for the first time back home".

That's a hard situation, especially considering three of those guys - veterans Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and John Lackey - have been rotation regulars all season. Considering the Brewers were also interested in obtaining Quintana, it would appear the Cubs have already recorded one victory over their rivals. "With him, it's not just about this year".

The White Sox are in last in the AL Central but have now made a series of trades that leave them with one of the best crop of prospects in baseball.

"I'm not surprised that they moved me, but I didn't know where I'd go", Quintana said.

Losing out on guys like Jimenez and Cease is hard for any organization, but the Cubs are loaded with young talent now. They deserved a world of credit.

Why the Cubs make this trade?

The Chicago Cubs picked up a win to start the second half. We've been playing from behind a lot. Flete is a 24-year old that was signed as an amateur out of Venezuela, and is hitting.305/.355/.425 with six homers at high-A.

For the second year in a row, Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs gave up way too much for a pitcher.
