Drafted in the 7th round (216th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2018 (signed for $175,000)
The Rays drafted Quezada in the 20th round out of Cypress (Calif.) JC a year ago, but he opted to attend Fullerton and became the Titans' Sunday starter. After an up-and-down start, Quezada finished the year strong, allowing one run or less in three of his final five starts. Quezada has more arm strength but less control than the stereotypical Fullerton righthander. He pitches at 92-93 mph, but can reach back for 95-96 and holds his velocity deep into outings. His slider and changeup flash average but aren't consistent. Quezada struggles with his control and his fastball gets squared up more than evaluators would like. He doesn't generate much downhill plane from his 6-foot-1 frame, so when his stuff flattens out it gets hit. Even so, he has a long track record of success. A solid year at the Division I level, combined with his arm strength, has Quezada in consideration in the first five rounds.
