Quintanilla Given Another Shot at Majors with Rangers

Former Socorro Bulldog and Texas Longhorn Omar Quintanilla signed a Triple-A contract with the Texas Rangers, resuming his career in the State of Texas.  A longtime Colorado Rockie, Omar is excited to get back into baseball after injury and suspension with a new team.

"It's really exciting, you know, after the season they had last year, going to the world series, it's an exciting team to go to. Great organization and a lot of talent. I am leaving a good team in Colorado, and my respects to them, great ballclub, and I thank them for everything. This is a business, and I'm moving on to the Rangers now."

Quintanilla, who joined the Rockies organization in 2005, had spent most of last season at Triple-A Colorado Springs and was most recently at Tri-City on a rehab assignment, had been suspended for 50 games after testing positive for Methylhexaneamine, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment.

After testing positive, the Rockies released this statement: "We were very disappointed to learn that Omar Quintanilla has been suspended after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.  The Colorado Rockies have long been committed to eliminating the use of performance-enhancing substances from the game of baseball. We have fully supported the adoption and implementation of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Player’s Association Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program."

Quintanilla still said he has two weeks left on the suspension, but he is putting it behind him, hoping an offseason rehabbing injury and getting stronger will help him with the Rangers.

"It's something you have to keep in mind, steroids is such a big deal now, that they are banning a lot of things now, a lot of substances. It was a tough deal, it came as a surprise and I am dealing with it now, and I am just putting it behind, it's just making me work harder and get back on the right track."

Omar had offseason surgery to remove bone spurs from his throwing elbow, and will report to the Rangers next week in Surprise, Arizona.
