Chicago Cubs vs. Baltimore Orioles: Odds, Analysis, MLB Betting Pick

Chicago Cubs vs. Baltimore Orioles: Odds, Analysis, MLB Betting Pick

We knew Quintana was going to be traded - just like David Robertson will and likely a few others - it was just a matter of what the White Sox got back.

The Chicago Cubs sent top prospect, OF Eloy Jimenez, along with minor leaguers Dylan Cease, Matt Rose and Bryant Flete to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana. The acquisition of Jimenez now gives the Cubs three of baseball's top 11 prospects (again, per MLB.com), with Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech (both acquired in the Chris Sale trade) joining Jimenez.

As the MLB All Star break comes to a close and the league's haves and have nots determine whether they'll be buyers or sellers in the trade market, the rumor mill has been churning out a number of possibilities for several teams and players.

Cease, 21, was 1-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 13 starts at low Single-A South Bend this season.

Cease has been a dominant pitcher since making his minor league debut, and though most of his work has come as a starter he is only averaging about 3.1 innings pitched per outing.

The Cubs have spotted the surprising Milwaukee Brewers a 5.5-game lead in the NL Central division.

Plus, they unveiled a new teaser poster as Brad Bird explained that Helen Parr (a.k.a Elastigirl) would be taking center stage. The brainchild of Monsters University director Dan Scanlan, the film takes place in a world of "suburban fantasy".

The Chicago Cubs bullpen has been one of the pillars of support in the first half. The Cubs tanked multiple seasons to build a championship roster and their management team won't settle for one-and-done success after all that suffering.

Though at first glance his 4-8 record and 4.49 record may seem alarming, it is not as bad as it seems.

Jose Quintana is headed to the Cubs. "However, the Cubs beat us to the punch in getting him done for $1.5 (million signing bonus) when they took him in the sixth round".

He's a 28-year-old lefty with a career 3.41 ERA entering this season. He's 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA on the season, but has turned things around more recently, which obviously was enough for the Cubs to believe in his bounce back. Adding on, Quintana has had an ERA of over 5 every month this year save for June (which includes July at a 5.59 ERA). And while the addition of Quintana certainly bolsters the Cubbies' rotation, it looks like the team still is looking to load up on arms. "As we've discussed with many of you frequently over the years, we've been trying to add controllable, talented pitching to this core that we have". (It later emerged that Rick Hahn and Theo Epstein ducked backstage at the All-Star FanFest to talk business.) Well, nearly no leaks. At the time nobody had, writing it off as rumor - when wetbutt23 rolled in, the source of the information, other Redditors needled him for extra information.
