News surfaced a few days ago from some “random sources” in the Lakeview area that Jose Quintana was walking around with a splint on his throwing hand. It seems that someone beat the Cubs to the punch for disclosing the news.

It has been reported today that Jose Quintana underwent hand surgery for a laceration suffered while hand washing dishes at his home in Miami, per

The surgery recovery time, per Quintana, is about two weeks, which is when he expects to resume his throwing program. That is good news, but depending how his hand reacts to the stress of throwing a baseball, his return for the Cubs’ 60-game season, slated to start at the end of July, is very much up in the air.

This could potentially be hazardous for the Cubs. Quintana, although not an elite pitcher, is a stable 3-4-5 pitcher in the rotation. With his absence, the Cubs will likely turn to either Alec Mills or Adbert Alzolay to make a few starts in his place until he is ready to pitch again.
