Left handed starter José Quintana has reached an agreement with the New York Mets and will join the middle of the team’s rotation.
The deal will be for the span of two season and will cost Steven Cohen and the Mets a total of $26M. Not too shabby, considering that Quintana is coming off of year where he pitched to a 2.93 ERA.
It’s hard to believe that Quintana will be entering his 12th season, however, the veteran journeyman sharp season with both the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals. As I mentioned earlier, Quintana owned a 2.93 ERA with just a 6-7 win/loss record.
While the record might not be an attention grabber, his consistency hitting the mound absolutely is. The Colombian born pitcher started 32 games in 2022, continuing to display his dependability as a theme to his career.
Overall, Quintana owns an 89-87 win/loss record to go alongside his 3.75 ERA, and 1.28 WHIP in over 1723.2 innings pitched.
