as mentioned in As the Chicago White Sox continue to rebuild their roster, starting pitcher Jose Quintana might be the next player on his way out of the Windy City.
Quintana is owed $14.35 million over the next two seasons, and the White Sox hold $10.5 million team options for 2019 and 2020.
Texas inquired about Quintana at last year’s trade deadline, per Grant, discussing Joey Gallo and Jurickson Profar as potential trade chips.
The Houston Astros and Pittsburgh Pirates have also reportedly shown interest in Quintana this winter.
But Chicago demanded that the Rangers include Rougned Odor and Nomar Mazara, effectively ending those talks.

MLB Hot Stove Rumors: Rangers reportedly upping pursuit of Jose Quintana
The Texas Rangers have spent the winter trying to improve their rotation.
Adding Quintana to the mix would give the Rangers another well-above-average starter — and a second well-above-average southpaw — to throw at the opposition.
We’ll see if the Rangers can get a deal hammered out, but you can understand why they’re interested.
Hence signing Andrew Cashner; hence pursuing Tyson Ross; hence rumors connecting them to various trade targets.
the Rangers have a formidable one-two punch, in Yu Darvish and Cole Hamels, then a bunch of question marks.

It is Grant’s belief that the White Sox stand the most to gain from this news being leaked.
There are lots of teams looking to add pitching, and it seems to depend on the White Sox getting fair value for their remaining ace.
While the White Sox do appear to be going through a rebuild, there isn’t necessarily a dire need to sell on Quintana.
According to a report from Bob Nightengale though, the Rangers have “suddenly[…] increased their pursuit” of the White Sox’s left-hander.
Grant explains that the White Sox could be using the Rangers’ rumored involvement in Quintana discussions to coerce the Astros into making a better offer.
