Report: Prospect-rich Yankees interested in White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana

Share

The White Sox winter trade-off could certainly continue, the team obviously willing to part with its top players for the right return package.

All-Star starting pitcher Jose Quintana could potentially be next to go, and apparently one of the most prospect-rich teams in baseball has interest.

According to Fox Sports' Jon Morosi, the New York Yankees are interested in the White Sox lefty.

Quintana won a career-high 13 games last season and posted a career-low 3.20 ERA, earning a spot on his first All-Star team. He'd figure to fetch quite the haul given his age and remaining team control.

Who knows exactly what general manager Rick Hahn would be looking for, but the Yankees' farm system is stocked with top prospects, including four of the top 22 on MLB.com's top-100 list: outfielder Clint Frazier (No. 15), shortstop Gleyber Torres (No. 17), infielder Jorge Mateo (No. 18) and outfielder Aaron Judge (No. 22).

Hahn has already landed huge returns for pitcher Chris Sale and outfielder Adam Eaton, and the White Sox suddenly have two of the top three on that aforementioned MLB.com prospect list: outfielder Yoan Moncada (No. 1) and pitcher Lucas Giolito (No. 3).
