  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Struggles against White Sox

    Quantrill (2-3) took the loss Wednesday, allowing six runs on four hits and three walks over four innings against the White Sox. He struck out two.

    Quantrill was solid through his first three innings, holding Chicago to just one run on one hit. However, he unraveled in the fourth, allowing the first three baserunners to reach, eventually surrendering five more runs. The six earned runs was a season high. Quantrill's ERA is up to 4.75 with a 1.35 WHIP and 31:18 K:BB. He's a risky fantasy option heading into his next start, tentatively lined up for next week in Baltimore.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Coughs up two homers

    Quantrill allowed three runs on six hits over 5.2 innings during Friday's loss to the Mets. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    Quantrill rolled through four shutout frames before allowing two runs in the fifth inning, including Francisco Alvarez's solo shot. Brett Baty then drilled a solo homer in the sixth. Quantrill failed to complete six innings for the first time since April 24 and gave up multiple home runs for the first time in 2023. He's now sporting a 4.06 ERA across 51 frames. Quantrill is projected for a home matchup against the White Sox next week.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Posts third straight quality start

    Quantrill did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over six innings against the Angels. He struck out two.

    Quantrill came back to earth after throwing seven innings of one-hit baseball in his last start, giving up three runs and earning yet another quality start. The Angels got to Quantrill early, with Mickey Moniak slugging a solo homer to lead off the first inning before a two-run, one-hit, two-walk third frame brought the advantage to 3-0 in favor of LAA. Though Quantrill is known for his ability to limit damage and generate ground balls, his 1.53 K/BB rate this season makes it difficult for the 28-year-old to climb the fantasy ranks. Quantrill is in line for a meeting with the Mets next week, who strike out the third-fewest times per game in MLB (7.53).

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Flirts with no-hitter

    Quantrill (2-2) earned the win Sunday, tossing seven scoreless innings in which he allowed one hit and three walks during a 2-0 victory over the Twins. He struck out four.

    Quantrill took a no-hit bid into the seventh but surrendered a two-out single to Alex Kirilloff. The right-hander has completed at least seven innings in back-to-back starts and notched his second scoreless outing of the season, lowering his ERA from 4.73 to 3.89. Quantrill has a few bumpy appearances so far and isn't striking many batters out (21:12 K:BB through 39.1 innings), but he appears to be on the right track recently and will look to make it three straight quality starts next time out, which is tentatively scheduled for a three-game weekend set versus the Angels.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Quality start in win

    Quantrill did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk over 7.1 innings in a 3-2 win over the Yankees. He struck out two.

    Quantrill surrendered a solo home run to Jose Trevino and an RBI single to DJ LeMahieu in the third, but other than that, the right-hander was sharp through a season-high 7.1 innings. It was a strong bounce-back performance for Quantrill, who was coming off his worst outing of the season (five earned runs over 3.1 innings versus Colorado). Despite the quality start Monday, he's still struggling with the long ball (four homers allowed over six starts) and isn't striking many batters out (17:9 K:BB through 32.1 innings).

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Early exit against Rockies

    Quantrill (1-2) took the loss Monday, coughing up five runs on eight hits and two walks over 3.1 innings as the Guardians fell 6-0 to the Rockies. He struck out two.

    A Jurickson Profar solo shot in the first inning set the tone for the evening, and Quantrill got chased in the fourth after giving up four singles and two walks to the first seven hitters he faced in the frame. It's not clear if the leg bruise he suffered in his prior start after a line drive comebacker had any impact on his poor performance, but the right-hander will take a 5.40 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 15:8 K:BB through 25 innings into his next outing, likely to come this weekend in Boston.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: In clear to start Monday

    Quantrill (leg) is listed as the Guardians' probable starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Rockies at Progressive Field.

    Quantrill was lifted after tossing a season-low 83 pitches in his last outing Wednesday against the Tigers when he was struck on the leg by a line drive while recording the final out of the bottom of the sixth inning, but his early exit looks to have been mostly precautionary. While the Guardians haven't formally confirmed that the right-hander completed a between-starts bullpen session without issue, Quantrill's inclusion on the pitching schedule for the series with the Rockies suggests he's good to go. He'll tentatively line up for a two-start week, with his second turn expected to come next Sunday in Boston.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Smoked by line drive in win

    Quantrill moved to 1-1 after striking out four over six scoreless innings in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Tigers, but he exited the game after being hit in the leg by a line drive, the Associated Press reports. He scattered four hits and one walk in the 83-pitch outing.

    With two outs and runners on first and third base in the bottom of the sixth, Tigers right fielder Kerry Carpenter sent a line drive back up the middle right at Quantrill, but the pitcher was able to field the ball off his leg and throw to first to record the final out of the inning. Quantrill's knee appeared to buckle when he attempted to stand up after making the play, but he was ultimately able to walk off the field under his own power. However, given that Quantrill had thrown no fewer than 89 pitches in any of his prior three starts and was working on a shutout, the Guardians evidently had some level of concern about his injury. Until Cleveland provides another update on his condition, Quantrill should be considered day-to-day ahead of his next scheduled start, which will likely fall next week versus the Rockies at Progressive Field.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Quality start in no-decision

    Quantrill gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three in six innings Friday against the Nationals. He did not factor in the decision.

    This was Quantrill's best start of the season, but he's still searching for his first win and he has not fanned more than three batters in a start yet. His 12 percent strikeout rate on the year would be easily a career worst -- his previous low mark was a 16.6 percent rate in 2022.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Stuck with loss Saturday

    Quantrill (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Guardians were downed 3-2 by the Mariners. He gave up three runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings and struck out three.

    All the damage off Quantrill came in the first two innings, and while he settled down after that, Cleveland's bats couldn't climb out of the hole. The right-hander threw 59 of 93 pitches for strikes before exiting, and he'll look to get in the win column in his next outing, likely to come next weekend on the road against the Nationals.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Settles for no-decision

    Quantrill did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings during a win over the Mariners. He struck out three.

    Quantrill worked exclusively as a starter last season for the first time in his career, and he posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 32 starts. He had a 16.6 percent strikeout rate that ranked second-worst among qualified pitchers, but it was encouraging to see him limit runs while generating a 15-5 record. Although Quantrill gave up five runs Sunday, he was able to settle for a no-decision in a game that lasted 10 innings. Following Sunday's lackluster outing, the right-hander tentatively lines up for a rematch against the Mariners at home Saturday.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Dominant in Thursday's win

    Quantrill threw 5.2 hitless innings in Thursday's Cactus League win over the Giants, allowing one walk and striking out five.

    Quantrill set down 17 straight Giants to start the game, then walked the last batter he faced. This was a new level of dominance for the right-hander in what's been a challenging spring -- he has a 5.25 ERA and 10:3 K:BB across 12 innings over four starts. Despite the struggles, he's a lock for the Guardians' rotation to open the season, and Quantrill's ability to maintain a good ERA and absorb innings gives him some appeal in fantasy.

  • Guardians' Cal Quantrill: Tinkering with pitch mix

    Quantrill worked to refine his curveball and add a splitter to his arsenal during the offseason, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Quantrill's search for new and revised pitches comes from the fact that he doesn't often boast swing-and-miss stuff. His 6.2 K/9 last season was the lowest of his career, though his 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP were perfectly fine as a middle-of-the-rotation starter. It's unclear how much the right-hander will bump up his curveball usage -- he threw it around four percent of the time in 2022, and he's still workshopping the splitter in spring training. In fantasy, Quantrill will again likely stabilize ratios without adding much to the strikeout total.
