Cal Quantrill gets major-league call like his dad

Cal Quantrill was selected by the San Diego Padres in the first round of the 2016 MLB Draft, following in his father’s footsteps of the professional ranks.  Cal was a standout as a freshman for Stanford University in 2014, after deciding not to sign a pro contract out of high school.  However, he wound up pitching only 18 more innings with Stanford before requiring Tommy John surgery.  Admittedly, the Padres are taking a gamble on Cal.

Cal’s father, Paul, pitched in the major-leagues for 14 seasons during 1992 to 2005.  He played for seven different clubs, including an all-star season with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2001.
