TD's Top Prospects-#17 Pitcher

Posted by Lionel on April 26, 2009.

Andres Quezada

Rank: #17 Pitcher (TD)

Age: 23

Position(s): SP, RP

Team(s): DSL Cubs

Acquired: Signed as a non-drafted free agent (2006)

'08 Key Composite Stats: 0.34 ERA, 37 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings, 1.10 WHIP

Breakdown: If Quezada wasn't 23 and pitching in the DSL, he'd easily be a top 10 pitcher. The reason the 23 year old righthander found himself in the DSL for the third year was that the Cubs decided to move him from a position player to the mound. I think it was a success. His 0.34 ERA was the lowest among all pitchers in the Cubs organization with at least 20 innings pitched. He gave up one earned run. 3 of his 13 appearances were starts, while he finished 5 contests, including 3 saves. His 1.41 K/IP put him fifth in the organization.
