"It feels really good today. My leg is better," said Quintana, showing no ill effects from the shin contusion. "I'm ready for the next start."
Not only will Quintana stay on turn, but he will probably be pushed a little deeper into this next start. Quintana only lasted two batters after that Parra line drive prematurely ended his day.
"Hopefully get him a few more innings and stretch him out to get him stronger," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura of Quintana, who figures to slot into the No. 3 spot in the rotation. "With him losing a couple of innings the other day, he has to catch back up. He should be fine by then to get him out there to get his innings."
