    Jose Quintana turns in stellar outing as White Sox crush Twins in series finale

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Guess who’s back? Jose Quintana turned in the kind of game on early Thursday evening that reminds you why he has been one of baseball’s top pitchers the past few seasons. Working with a swing-and-miss curveball/changeup combo, Quintana waited out a near five-hour delay to produce a stellar outing. Quintana struck out nine batters in 6 2/3 scoreless innings as the White Sox avoided a sweep with a 9-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins in front of 27,684 at Target Field. Jose Abreu, Todd Frazier and Matt Davidson all homered for the White Sox, who finished with 18 hits and a 3-3 mark on their road trip.

    Interview with newest Twins pitcher Trevor Hildenberger

    Have you hear about Twins prospect Trevor Hildenberger? He’s a side-arm reliever who has pitched 30.2 innings this year for the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings. In that time he’s posted a 2.05 ERA, along with 25 strikeouts and only eight walks. That’s pretty darn good! So good, in fact, the Twins just called him up to the Minnesota Twins today. I was very luckily enough to get the chance to talk to Hildenberger just a day or two ago, before his big call-up. Below is our full interview. Twinkie Town: Thank you for talking to me today. Trevor Hildenberger: Yes, of course! TT: I’ll just start off by asking how you’ve been feeling this season? How have things been going from your perspective? Hildenberger:

    NC State’s Joe Dunand and Andy Cosgrove sign MLB contracts

    With the deadline for MLB draftees to sign just a couple of weeks away, we’re getting a better idea of what NC State’s baseball team will look like next season. It won’t have third baseman Evan Mendoza, who signed with St. Louis earlier this week. It also won’t have shortstop Joe Dunand or catcher Andy Cosgrove, both of whom recently signed. I have not been able to find bonus numbers for either of them, but the slot value for Dunand is north of $1.3 million, and it’s certainly possible that the Miami Marlins threw in a few hundred grand on top of that to make sure he didn’t waver. Cosgrove (17th round pick), who is now a Minnesota Twin (gross), probably received a bonus similar to Mendoza’s (11th),
