2016 FANTASY SPORTS BOSS AL DARKHORSE CY YOUNG WINNER: JOSE QUINTANA


While those who play fantasy baseball like to know each and every nugget of information on players, some guys inevitably fall through the cracks in terms of numbers and their overall impact.  Whether a pitcher or a hitter, some guys don’t get the credit or due they deserve despite a string of good to very good campaigns.  That brings us to our pick for the AL Darkhorse Cy Young winner which is none other than the Chicago White Sox’ Jose Quintana.  Now 27-years-old, Quintana is set to launch his fourth straight season of fantasy baseball friendly numbers that don’t get the credit it deserves.  Consider that over the last three seasons, Quintana’s ERA’s and WHIP’s have looked like the following:

2013:  3.51/1.22

2014:  3.32/1.24

2015:  3.36/1.27

Those are very impressive numbers indeed and Quintana was perhaps at his best in 2015 as he pitched to a splendid 2.95 ERA in the second half of the season.  With improving control every step of the way and an increasingly good hit rate to go with solid strikeout stuff, Jose Quintana could put it all together and have big 2016 season that should get him into the Cy Young conversation.
