The White Sox could still trade Jose Quintana. David O’Brien writes the Atlanta Braves are again interested in the lefty.
The Chicago White Sox are still open to trading Jose Quintana. The market for him seemed to have slowed down but a few good starts and that may have changed. David O’Brien writes the Atlanta Braves are again interested in the ace. It’s not surprising considering his team-friendly contract. The Braves showed interest last year.
Rick Hahn told Ken Davidoff he is open to trading his ace and has been in various talks. So far nothing has materialized. But it seems like a really possibly Quintana will no longer be in a White Sox uniform after the trading deadline. It will be interesting to see what names come up in conversations.

Hahn has done a great job retooling this organization with an emphasis on the minor league system. The farm system has a lot of talent. And the pool could get even deeper with a Quintana trade. He may not garner the return Chris Sale did. But his contract and past history show that he can be a solid pitcher for any team.
Quintana struggled to start the season but has strung together some solid appearances. The White Sox hope he can continue that trend because that will help him regain some value he may have lost.
The trump card is definitely his contract. It’s such a good contract from a team’s perspective that could outweigh his slow start. Still, the White Sox need to get some quality prospects for him. They can’t afford to trade him for nothing.
