The Chicago White Sox signed starting pitcher Jose Quintana to a new five-year, $26.5 million contract extension on Monday.
The new deal runs through 2018 and buys out Quintana’s remaining years of arbitration eligibility. It also includes a $10.5 million option for the 2019 season and a $11.5 million option for the 2020 season.
A 25-year-old left-hander, Quintana went 9-7 with a 3.51 ERA and a 2.93 strikeouts-to-walks ratio in 200 innings pitched for the White Sox last season.
This deal is a solid move by the White Sox as they continue their rebuilding process.
