Dud: Cal Quantrill

Cal Quantrill looks like he falls into the category of several other Guardians pitchers, the category of non-rotation arm. Quantrill may be better suited as a multi-inning reliever rather than a member of Cleveland's rotation. More often than not, Quantrill has an inning where nothing goes his way resulting in a rather ugly pitching line. It is the inning which Quantrill allows multiple runs to score which always appears to be his undoing and that is a major problem.

Excluding his 6 innings against Detroit in which Quantrill held the lowly Tigers scoreless, the 28-year old right-hander has allowed 15 runs on 29 hits in 19 innings, not exactly what the Guardians are looking for. Perhaps Quantrill can get back to where he was the previous two seasons, 118 runs allowed in 336 innings. A 3.16 ERA and 1.194 WHIP is a lot more tolerable than the current 5.40 and 1.640 that his first five starts have produced.
