Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 50 | Curveball: 50 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 55 | Overall: 50

The son of former big leaguer Paul Quantrill, Cal made three starts as a Stanford sophomore before undergoing Tommy John surgery, which cost him the remainder of his 2015 season and his pre-Draft '16 season. The Padres, after seeing him throw several bullpen sessions at Petco Park, used the first of their five Day 1 picks on Quantrill, selecting him eighth overall and signing him for above slot value at $3,963,045. The Ontario native reached Double-A in his first full season, then suited up for the World Team in the All-Star Futures Game.

Quantrill's arsenal is deep even if no singular pitch is devastating. It's headlined by two plus pitches -- a low-to-mid 90s fastball and a low-80s changeup that he commands impeccably. His slider and curveball can be inconsistent, but Quantrill seemed to gain a better feel for the two offerings toward the end of his 2018 season. His numbers improved significantly upon his promotion to Triple-A El Paso in August, but he could still do a better job of using his breaking pitches to generate swings and misses.

In his first two full professional seasons, Quantrill reached 116 and 148 innings, respectively, as he put to rest any lingering concerns about his health. The reins will be fully off Quantrill in 2019. His impressive blend of size, stuff and pitchability make him a candidate to join the Padres' rotation at some point midseason.
