According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Pirates are working hard to try and acquire Jose Quintana. 

Quintana has spent the first five seasons of his big league career pitching for the Chicago White Sox. The 27-year-old left-hander has become one of the most durable pitchers in the game, as he’s made 30 or more starts each of the past four seasons. Quintana had his best season in 2016, posting a 3.20 ERA along with a 125 ERA+, a 5.2 WAR and was named an All-Star for the first time. 

When it comes to potential trade targets for the Pirates rotation, Quintana’s name has consistently come up, and it now appears he’s their top trade target. Quintana is owed $15.85 million over the next two seasons, which includes a pair of club options for 2019 and 2020.
