Padres turn to Quantrill to cure pitching ills

Now it's the Padres facing a pitching conundrum.

On Saturday night, the Pirates searched high and low for a starter before opting, successfully, for Montana DuRapau to make his first major league start as an "opener" in Pittsburgh's 7-2 win at Petco Park in San Diego.

On Sunday, Cal Quantrill is scheduled to make his third spot start as the de facto sixth starter in the San Diego rotation. But might Quantrill, the eighth overall pick in the 2016 draft and the Padres' 10th-ranked prospect by, actually be replacing rookie left-hander Nick Margevicius in the rotation?
