Canadian right-hander Cal Quantrill and the Colorado Rockies have avoided arbitration, striking a one-year, $6.55 million deal, according to multiple reports.

The Rockies acquired Quantrill on Nov. 17 after he was designated for assignment by the Cleveland Guardians a couple days earlier.

The 28-year-old from Port Hope, Ont., had a down season in 2023, posting a 5.24 ERA in 19 starts. He allowed 111 hits in 99.2 innings pitched and struck out just 58 hitters. He missed time with a shoulder injury and made just two starts between May 30 and Sept. 1. 

However, Quantrill had a strong end to the season, going 2-1 with a 2.76 ERA in 32.2 innings in six starts in the month of September. 

The 6-foot-3 righty had a strong 2022 season, going 15-5 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. 

His father, Paul Quantrill, pitched 14 MLB seasons, six of which were spent with the Toronto Blue Jays.
