Quintana showing he can handle big league role
CHICAGO -- Even with Jose Quintana's 1.53 ERA produced over 35 1/3 innings pitched, the rookie left-hander hasn't officially secured a rotation spot when John Danks returns healthy. But Quintana has made it easier for the White Sox to take their time with Danks' ongoing recovery from a left shoulder strain.

"We don't want to rush [Danks] back and try to push him in there before he's ready," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. "That's the cushion and the convenience of having a guy pitching as well as 'Q'."

Quintana's success appears to be sustainable, especially with his success coming against frontline teams like the Indians, Rays, Cardinals, Blue Jays and Dodgers.

"Maybe you could still guess about it if he hadn't pitched against some of the teams he has," White Sox general manager Ken Williams said. "But he's been on the stage, and he's had to produce, and he's come through. We're going to try to grind it out, and the best man wins. That's what competition's all about."
