CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today provided the following update on left-handed pitcher José Quintana.

Last Saturday while washing dishes at his home in Miami, Quintana suffered a laceration on his left thumb that required five stitches.

This morning in Chicago, Quintana underwent microscopic surgery on his left thumb to further determine the extent of his injury. The procedure identified a lacerated digital sensory nerve in his left thumb, which was surgically repaired.

Quintana is expected to resume his throwing program in approximately two weeks, after which time a further determination will be made on expected length of absence.
