REPORTS: Cubs Expected to Name Jose Quintana as Game One Starter

Chicago Cubs News

As expected/hoped, all signs point to Jose Quintana being ready to go this evening to face the Dodgers in Game One of the NLCS.


It’s not official yet, but:

Given Kyle Hendricks’ start on Thursday, even with his relief appearance later in the game, Quintana made the most sense for this start (if available). John Lackey was the other realistic option.

The rest of the Cubs’ NLCS roster should come out this afternoon, and you shouldn’t expect dramatic changes – perhaps just a switcharoo or two in the bullpen.
