2. Cal Quantrill
There’s still plenty of time for Quantrill to get his stock trending in the right direction, but keep in mind, this is someone the Tribe was hoping would seize a spot in the starting rotation.
And, at this point, it looks like he’s been overtaken by Logan Allen, who was acquired in the Trevor Trade in 2019.
In 8.1 innings, Quantrill’s allowed 11 hits while issuing seven walks. He has a 6.45 ERA. Allen was trying to throw to hard, which led to his fastball being up in the zone, according to Cleveland.com’s Terry Pluto.
Quantrill was acquired in trade that sent Mike Clevinger to San Diego. He pitched for Cleveland last season, but as a reliever.
He still projects as a starter, but he just may need more time under the guidance of the Indians Pitching Factory. Allen’s been at it a little longer, and he’s one of the brightest stars of camp.
