Noesi continues to dominate in winter ball

Jose Quintana signed a minor league deal with the White Sox. (UPDATE: He’s on their 40-man roster, so apparently it was a big league contract.) The 22-year-old southpaw broke out with High-A Tampa this year (2.96 FIP in 102 IP), but became a free agent after the season. For shame, I was looking forward to seeing the follow-up performance. Oh, and Jeff Marquez signed with the Mariners, but I don’t think anyone will lose any sleep over that one.

By the way, the Arizona Fall League season ends next Thursday, with the Championship Game scheduled for Saturday. Phoenix has the worst record in the league and has already been eliminated from postseason play.

    why didn’t they extend Quintana? Weird.

    Losing Marquez is going to make it a little tougher to steal Danks from the White Sox.

    • http://www.bronxbombersreport.com Craig Maduro

      Good. Move the focus to someone else.

    • jjyank

      I LOL’ed

    • JobaWockeeZ

      Danks isn’t going to be a salary dump like Swish was.

      • jjyank

        Pretty sure he was kidding…nobody actually thinks Marquez would have gotten traded for Danks. Its just supposed to be funny.

  • Paul VuvuZuvella

    Damn Hector…this is a hitters league, no?

    • Paul VuvuZuvella

      Oops my bad. Thought he was in AFL.

  • KeithK

    Saw the Phoenix game Saturday. Phelps pitched fairly well. Showed some poise in getting out of trouble spots. Way too much nibbling though, leading to the high pitch count. And too many base runners, which has been his MO this fall.

  • Brian S.

    Is Noesi facing AA and AAA hitters in DWL?

  • http://www.twitter.com/howienewville Howie

    Believe it or not, the White Sox signed Quintana to a big league contract, not a minor league deal – http://mlb.mlb.com/team/roster_40man.jsp?c_id=cws

  • dean

    They need to keep Noesi unless its a real nice return.

  • BronxBomber98

    Think it’s time to start Noesi in Spring Training, seems like he has the potential for a better rookie campaign than Nova. (Not sure if Noesi had enough innings pitched for 2011 to qualify as his rookie year)

    • Lou

      I don’t think he qualifies as a rookie due to time on the major league roster, but the point is the same, he could be quite effective in the rotation.

  • http://www.licey.com ángel

    Without Noesi team(licey) others notable players in others teams are: erick almonte, wilson valdez, alexis casilla, carlos peguero, bryan pena, brandon belt, brett wallace, felix pie, jake fox, jose conztanza, julio borbon, andy marte, pedro feliz, hector luna, mike rivera, willin rosario, brian bougusevick, etc…
