The final player currently playing at the big league level by the Indians in the deal with San Diego is right-handed reliever, Cal Quantrill.
Quantrill is a 25-year-old from Canada who was originally drafted in the 25th round in the 2013 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees but opted to play college baseball at Stanford. That decision paid off as he was selected with the eighth overall selection in the 2016 draft by San Diego.
As a rookie in 2019, Quantrill pitched in 23 games, with 18 being starts. He posted a 6-8 record and 5.16 ERA, but in 2020 has shown signs of significant improvement moving into the bullpen full-time.
In 10 games with nine being relief appearances, Quantrill is 2-0 with a 2.60 ERA and has struck out 18 batters in 17.1 innings of work.
With the Indians, he figures to slide into the sixth inning role or any mid-relief inning to help get the ball to set-up men Nick Wittgren and James Karinchak and then closer Brad Hand. He also could help out to make a spot start if the team still wants to limit Zach Pleseac‘s time in the majors or want to give one of their starters an extra day of rest for the stretch run.
