Jose Quintana had a very bad day

White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana started this afternoon against the A’s and here’s how things went for him:

Double
Single
Homer
Walk

[Mound Visit]
Double
Single
Single
Triple
[Pitching Change]

That’s nine batters faced, all of whom reached base and, while this part isn’t totally Quintana’s fault, all of whom came around to score. So … nine runs allowed and no outs recorded.

Quintana was really good last season, starting 33 games with a 3.51 ERA, but even before today’s disastrous outing he had a 16.50 ERA in three games this spring. And now his ERA stands at a ridiculous 30.00, which is 20 runs allowed and 18 outs recorded.

These games don’t count for anything, but that’s extreme enough to make the White Sox worried, I’d imagine.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.

Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”

Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
