Johan Quezada

Marlins Quezada Claimed by Phils

In his debut season, Johan Quezada made just three relief appearances with the Marlins. The first two – including his career debut with one shutout innings against the Phillies – went well. In his third outing, Quezada allowed three earned runs against Boston giving him a season ERA of 9.00 for Miami.

Perhaps it was that first performance that impressed the Phillies, but whatever it was, they claimed Quezada off waivers from the Marlins. The move comes after several moves to remove relievers from the 40-man roster.

The 26-year old was originally signed by the Minnesota Twins as an amateur free agent in 2012 pitching as high as High-A in the Twins organization. Following the 2019 season, Quezada became a minor league free agent and signed with the Marlins as a free agent. As a minor leaguer, Quezada had a mark of 15-8 with a 4.05 ERA in 111 relief appearances and five starts in the Twins organization.
