Paul Quantrill plays for the Cleveland Guardians of Major League Baseball (MLB). He was formerly a member of the San Diego Padres.
Quantrill earned four varsity letters in addition to letters in baseball, volleyball, and hockey at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario.
Despite being selected by the New York Yankees in the 26th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball draft, he decided to enroll at Stanford University instead of signing a contract.
He made 17 starts for Stanford during his rookie season, including in their game on the first day of the season, making him the first freshman to start the first day of the season for Stanford since Mike Mussina in 1988.
During 1102 3 innings thrown, Quantrill had a 7-5 win-loss record, a 2.68 ERA, and 98 strikeouts. Before an arm injury ended Quantrill’s sophomore season, he had a 2-0 record with a 1.93 ERA in 1823 innings pitched.
He had Tommy John surgery, and while he was healing, he missed the rest of the 2015 season and all of 2016.
Quantrill was one of the best available players when the 2016 Major League Baseball draft began.
The San Diego Padres chose him with the eighth overall pick. Quantrill was acquired by the Padres and assigned to the Arizona Padres.
They gave him a promotion to the Tri-City Dust Devils in August then later in the month to the Fort Wayne TinCaps.
In 12 starts for the three teams in 2016, he had a combined 0-5 record and a 5.11 ERA. In the San Diego Padres Futures Game following the season, Quantrill pitched two innings while striking out four batters.
