Quintana signed a major league contract with the White Sox on November 10, 2011. Quintana was sent to the Birmingham Barons of the Class AA Southern League by the White Sox.

Quintana was promoted to the majors on May 7, 2012, after starting the season with a 1–2 record, a 3.06 ERA, and 26 strikeouts in 35 innings pitched for Birmingham, thanks to a new MLB rule that enabled teams to carry a 26th member on their 25-man roster during the day of a doubleheader.

In the first game of the doubleheader, he made his MLB debut, pitching 5+23 innings in relief, allowing no runs, one hit, and two walks while striking out three batters.

Quintana was optioned back to Birmingham the next day, where he remained until May 24, when he was promoted to the Class AAA International League’s Charlotte Knights.

He didn’t pitch there, though, as he was promoted to Chicago the next day after John Danks was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Quintana earned his first Major League victory on May 25 against the Cleveland Indians, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on four hits while walking three batters and striking out four.

Quintana was ejected by umpire Mark Wegner on May 30, 2012, after throwing a pitch behind Ben Zobrist during a game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Quintana pitched in 25 games and made 22 starts in 2012, finishing 6–6 with a 3.76 ERA.
