Scouting Report

Size isn't on Quintana's side but present stuff and athleticism is. Quintana shows off a very fast arm and big fastball life. He's only at about 90-91 mph with his fastball right now, but some of the swings indicate that his velocity is playing up a couple ticks. His fastball command is below average right now, as he tends to miss badly up and away to his arm side.
