WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Quintanilla, when he signed, had good command of his pitches.  The hope is that he’ll add some muscle.

2021
DSL:  1-0-0, 0.90 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 10.0 IP, 6.3 BB/9, 10.8 K/9

Quintanilla pitched only a little in his debut, all in relief.  The ERA was more impressive than the other numbers, except the K rate.

2022
DSL:  1-2-0, 3.13 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 31.2 IP, 3.7 BB/9, 10.5 K/9

The Pirates sent Quintanilla back to the DSL and he started eight of his ten games.  Despite the higher ERA, he improved a lot over his first season.  He got the walks way down and opponents batted just .210 against him.

Quintanilla should be in the FCL in 2023.
