Quantrill would likely be in the 1-1 (top pick) conversation if he had not blown out his elbow last spring; he had surgery in March. Prior to the injury, Quantrill was working with a deep, advanced repertoire headlined by a potential plus-plus changeup and a fastball that would creep up to 94 mph. He started throwing again in August, and no issues have been reported. If his recovery time mirrors that of most Tommy John recoveries, he’d be on track to make about eight starts next year, still time to show scouts that all is well.
