José Quintana was washing dishes at his Miami home the day before his flight to Chicago for training camp last summer when a wine glass broke in his hand, cutting his left thumb so severely he needed surgery to repair nerve damage and five stitches to close the wound.
The veteran left-hander missed the first month and a half of the pandemic-shortened 60-game season with the Cubs. When he finally returned and pitched twice in late August, he was sidelined for another two weeks because of inflammation in the back of his throwing shoulder.
Quintana, 32, pitched in only two more games, in the final week of September. One of baseball’s most durable pitchers from 2013 to 2019, when he made at least 32 starts a season for the White Sox and Cubs, the native of Colombia made all of four appearances — and one start — in 2020.
