Drafted in the 3rd round (122nd overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2012 (signed for $325,000)
Some teams won't have Quintana high on their draft boards simply because of his size: 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds. Teams that look past that will see a pitcher who throws his fastball in the 90-95 mph range with an easy delivery. His stuff has been inconsistent this year, in part because of a heavy workload. After throwing 129 pitches to beat local power Bishop Gorman High, Quintana was asked to start against them again on just two days rest. He has a hard breaking ball that can meander between a curveball and a slider, and a developing changeup. Quintana is a good athlete who plays shortstop when he's not pitching. He is committed to Nevada-Las Vegas, but is expected to sign if he's drafted between the fourth and sixth rounds.
