MLB Rumors: This Under-The-Radar Starting Pitcher Has Plenty Of Interest

The starting pitching market isn't as robust as past years heading up to the trade deadline. There are generally three starters that everyone talks about, Frankie Montas of the Oakland A's, and the Cincinnati Reds' Luis Castillo and Tyler Mahle. 

But the Pittburgh Pirates have a candidate that's drawing plenty of interest as well.

Quintana has a 3.99 ERA, with an 81:29 strikeout to walk ratio, over 18 starts. Things haven't gone quite as well over his last seven starts, however, with a 5.15 ERA over that span and a 1.36 WHIP. But hey, beggars can't be choosers in this market.

The 33-year-old lefty was an All-Star in 2016 with the Chicago White Sox, when he posted a 3.20 ERA and a 181:50 K:BB ratio, with a 1.16 WHIP.  

His former team, the White Sox, along with the Minnesota Twins and the St. Louis Cardinals are among the teams that have shown interest.
