The San Francisco Giants claimed veteran left-hander Jose Quintana off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.
Quintana, 32, signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Angels in January and went 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA in 24 appearances (10 starts). He struck out 73 batters and walked 29 in 53 1/3 innings.
An All-Star in 2016, Quintana is 83-80 lifetime with a 3.83 ERA in 278 games (257 starts) with the Chicago White Sox (2012-17), Cubs (2017-20) and Angels.
The Giants, who have the best record in the majors, open a four-game home series with the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.
