The Chicago White Sox has announced that they've signed left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana to a five year extension.
Quintana has made a five year extension on his contract, with options to renew in 2019 and 2020.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The deal has a couple of options for the club. If Quintana is eligible for arbitration following the 2014 season, then he would be guaranteed $26.5 million over the five years. The White Sox would be able to extend in 2019 at $10.5 million and 2020 at $11.5 million. If these options are declined, Quintana would then be eligible for a $1.0 million buyout.
However, if Quintana is not eligible for arbitration after 2014 then the price drops a few million down to $21.0 million. Extensions would remain the same for 2019-'20, and the buyout would remain the same.
Quintana, a Colombian ball player was brought into the Major Leagues by the White Sox in 2012, and had his first full season in 2013, but has played in the minors since 2006.
In MLB he is 9-7 with an earned run average of 3.51. He has 165 strikeouts and leads the MLB with 17 no decisions over 33 starts in 2013. He is tied for first among American League left-handers in starts, third in runners per 9.0 innings played, fifth in earned run averages, sixth for strikeouts, and seventh in innings played. He also holds an American League record of 17 no decisions, three of which resulted from 7.0-plus scoreless innings played.
The White Sox locked down another left handed pitcher in 2013, Chris Sale, for $32.5 million for a five year extension with options in 2018-'19. Sale has played with the White Sox since 2010, and is one of five MLB players to play the same year as they were drafted. Sale will also start as pitcher for the White Sox Opening Day on March 31 against Minnesota. He has a 2.97 earned run average
