SP Jose Quintana, Chicago White Sox

The White Sox won seven straight games right before the deadline to somewhat stay in the race. The winning streak had a lot to do with their starting pitching and Quintana in particular.

Actually, Quintana pitched well throughout the month of July. Since July 1, he has a 2.63 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 48 innings. In the second half of the season, Quintana has posted a 2.70 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 7.43 K/9 in 26 2/3 innings.

He is still only 6-9 this season, but if fantasy baseball owners need help on their starting staff, Quintana has pitched well over the last month.
