He remains the sports anchor for the Telemundo affiliate in Phoenix, and in addition to working D'backs games has broadcast Mexican Pacific League baseball games as well as Arizona Sandsharks indoor soccer and Arizona Rattlers arena football.
Swamped by messages on his cellular phone seeking D'backs updates from friends in the southern part of the state, Quintana would like to return to the Tucson audience.
"That is a large market right there we are missing," he said.

Quintana and Soria have developed a bond not only with Hermosillo native and fan favorite Erubiel Durazo, but also with many in the D'backs clubhouse.
