Description: Astros C Humberto Quintero left the game with a right ankle sprain after a collision at home plate and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: This injury is not nearly as serious as Buster Posey's so look for Quintero to miss just 2-3 weeks.

Description: The Houston Chronicle reports Quintero (head) expects to be ready on Tuesday.
Insight: Quintero was struck in the head by Ranger's SS Andres Blanco's backswing on Sunday, but reported no immediate concussion-like symptoms. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Quintero went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI against Colorado on Thursday.
Insight: Quintero is hitting .268 with three home runs and nine RBU this season. It goes without saying he is not a good fantasy option. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Quintero (left elbow) was hit by a pitch on the left elbow on Sunday against the Reds, but stayed in the game.
Insight: Since Quintero is only hitting .242 with one home run and five RBI this season, hopefully this news is not important to your fantasy team. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The Houston Chronicle reports that, with J.R. Towles being demoted to Double-A, Quintero will become the Astros' starting catcher.
Insight: Quintero seems to work well with the Astros' pitching staff, but a .214 batting average so far this season does not make him fantasy-worthy. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/22/2010 11:22:00 AM
Description: The Houston Chronicle reports Quintero may be on his way to becoming Bud Norris' personal catcher.
Insight: Norris has thrown well with Quintero behind the plate, so this appears to be likely to happen. If Quintero sees more playing time, the fantasy value of J.R. Towles takes a hit. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/20/2010 8:47:00 AM
Description: The Astros avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year, $750,000 contract with Quintero on Tuesday.
Insight: Quintero hit .236 with four home runs and 14 RBI last season as the Astros' backup catcher. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Quintero, Ivan Rodriguez's backup, hit his first homer of the season. That was all the runs his battery mate, Wandy Rodriguez, needed.
Insight: Quintero calls a good game, apparently, but he has very little fantasy value. If something were to happen to Rodriguez, Quintero would not be someone to get because he will drag your team's average down. (SportsBuff.com)
