Chicago Cubs Acquire Jose Quintana — Fantasy Baseball

Should Cubs Consider Making Trades Before Deadline?

The Cubs acquired pitcher Jose Quintana from the White Sox for four prospects in a move that caught people by surprise - including the left-hander's now-former teammates. It has to be comforting for fans to know their front office is always willing to jump on a smart trade when it presents itself.

The deal is one more part of the White Sox huge rebuilding. Talks heated up over the next few days before the teams agreed to the deal on Wednesday night. Still, trading him to a contender may be more realistic. After this trade the Cubs have none of baseball's top 100 prospects.

As the MLB All Star break comes to a close and the league's haves and have nots determine whether they'll be buyers or sellers in the trade market, the rumor mill has been churning out a number of possibilities for several teams and players. We could be seeing an arms race like that shaping up in the NL Central this season. The harsh reality kicked in that the team was losing their best pitcher for players of the future.

Wade Miley will make the start for the Orioles in Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Rated as the No. 5 overall prospect by Baseball America, Jimenez batted.271 with eight home runs and 32 RBIs in 42 games with high Single-A Myrtle Beach this season.

This week's Cubs-White Sox blockbuster could be one that works out well for both teams, but there's no doubt that it was a coup for Sox general manager Rick Hahn, who traded a starter having a decidedly so-so season for the Cubs' top two prospects in Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease.

The Cubs and the Sox have made one other major trade.

The Chicago Cubs will need a strong second half of the season to catch and pass the Milwaukee Brewers.

"With him it's not just about this year". Epstein said he likes the makeup of the club, but not the way the team is playing right now. Thus far in 2017, he has a 4.49 ERA in 18 starts, this after posting a career-best 3.20 ERA a season ago. The only run he allowed came on a Miguel Sano solo shot in the third inning. "However, the Cubs beat us to the punch in getting him done for $1.5 (million signing bonus) when they took him in the sixth round". Since joining the Cubs, Arrieta is 62-28 with a 2.78 ERA in 116 starts. Baltimore scored in double digits twice in the month of June.

On top of his strong statistical performance, Arrieta has also thrown two no-hitters in a Cubs uniform, one against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015 and another against the Cincinnati Reds last year. "A lot of it will depend on how we play". Flete has been in the system since 2012 and is really performing well in advanced A. At 24, he should be in at least AA, but he couldn't hack it there with the bat.
