Source: Pirates to sign pitcher Jose Quintana for $2 million, pending physical

With an obvious and immediate need to repair their starting rotation, the Pirates on Sunday acquired a pitcher they hope will help in Jose Quintana, signing the left-hander for around $2 million, a source confirmed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The team has not announced the deal, which is a major league contract and pending a physical.

Quintana, 32, pitched for the Angels and Giants last season and went 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA in 29 games (10 starts), although he did strike out a career-high 12.1 per nine innings.

The native of Arjona, Colombia has also pitched for the White Sox and Cubs during his 10-year career, going 83-80 with a 3.84 ERA in 283 games (257 starts).

Giants add former All-Star Jose Quintana for needed innings

The Giants didn’t wait long to add another veteran arm after parting ways with Tyler Chatwood.T

Veteran lefty José Quintana was claimed from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday morning, adding another potential option to soak up innings during the final month of the season. The front office has been aggressive in pursuing depth options since the trade deadline, with righties Matt Shoemaker and Logan Ondrusek joining Chatwood on the Triple-A staff at one point.

Chatwood was DFA’d on Sunday, but Shoemaker and Ondrusek remain in Triple-A as potential fill-ins. Quintana adds yet another experienced arm as the Giants try to keep their narrow lead in the NL West.

Quintana made 24 appearances for the Angels and didn’t pitch well, posting a 6.75 ERA and 1.781 WHIP. He struck out a career-high 12.3 batters per nine innings, though, and a 4.31 FIP indicates there might have been some bad luck in his outings. He also had some success as a reliever, a role the Giants likely envision for him over the next month. Chatwood essentially served as their long man.
