Paul John Quantrill (born November 3, 1968 in London, Ontario, Canada) is a right-handed reliever in Major League Baseball. He has earned a reputation for being very durable and having impeccable control. He regularly appears in 80 or more games a season and has not walked more than 25 batters in a season since 1996. Commentators often joke that he has a "rubber arm".
Paul Quantrill was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 6th round of the 1989 amateur draft and made his Major League debut on July 20, 1992. Originally considered a starter, Paul eventually found consistency as a reliever after several years of splitting time between the bullpen and the starting rotation for several teams. Some of his best years came for the Toronto Blue Jays, a team located close to his Canadian home.
