2020 Fantasy Outlook
Quantrill's rookie season was a mixed bag. Just four of his 18 starts were of the quality variety, but he was pitching quite well for a stretch until he tired late in the season. He had a four-start stretch from Aug. 27 to Sept. 15 in which he allowed 28 earned runs in 16.2 innings, taking his ERA from a strong 3.32 to an ugly 5.33 ERA. The Padres allowed him one more start before shutting him down for the season, and he finished with a 5.16 ERA. He simply ran into a buzzsaw there with starts against the Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Cubs and at Coors Field which ruined what had been a solid statistical rookie season. His limited strikeout production is tough to roster in shallow mixed leagues, but the young man has a solid skills base to be a productive pitcher moving forward and is better than what his ERA showed last year. He will compete for a rotation spot in camp, but will likely open the year at Triple-A. Read Past Outlooks

Earns win in relief
PSan Diego Padres
August 11, 2020
Quantrill (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Dodgers. He tossed three scoreless innings, allowing two hits while fanning three.
ANALYSIS
Quantrill came out of the bullpen in the third inning and turned in an impressive outing against one of the best offenses in the National League. He was coming off an appearance where he allowed three runs in 4.1 innings against the Rockies on Aug. 1, but he bounced back admirably here while not issuing a walk for the first time this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Quantrill's stock may have peaked prior to the 2017 season, when many evaluators projected a future No. 3 starter with a chance to be a No. 2. One can still dream on a potentially plus-plus changeup and a borderline plus fastball, but he was too inconsistent with his mechanics and command last year to flash upper-rotation upside very often. An athletic 6-foot-2 righty, Quantrill underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015, which is why he is heading into his age-23 season with less than 50 innings under his belt at Double-A. If his command were to jump a grade and he added a tick to his fastball, we could still comfortably project a No. 3 starter, but given his age and proximity to the majors, it seems safer to expect a No. 4 starter at this point. There may be outlets that are slower to adjust to this new reality, so he could still fetch a top-100 prospect this offseason. He could make his big-league debut in the second half.
After undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2015, Quantrill fell out of the mix for last year's No. 1 overall pick. The Padres used the situation to their advantage and landed him with a slightly over-slot deal at No. 8. The early returns suggest they got the best college arm in the draft. He has a deadly changeup, but unlike most minor leaguers with plus changeups, his fastball sits in the mid-90s, serving as a second plus pitch. His slider is good enough for him to safely project as a mid-rotation starter, but if it were to jump a grade in the coming years, Quantrill would have the repertoire of a No. 2 starter. It will take him a couple of years to build up his innings to the point that he eases workload concerns, but he has a starter's frame, so his body should hold up. Despite barely getting any work at Low-A Tri-City or Fort Wayne last year, he is advanced enough to get an assignment to High-A Lake Elsinore this year, joining one of the best rotations in the minors.
