Didn’t see this one coming…I guess it will be a depth move.
We have acquired RHP Johan Quezada from the Phillies in exchange for cash considerations.
Quezada, 26, made his Major League debut last season for the Marlins and will be added to our 40-man roster, which now stands at 38. pic.twitter.com/pz6h0TpqpT

We’ve had a lot of these guys over the years, and they are all intriguing, except maybe Rondon, who had the straightest fastball ever and gave up rockets consistently. I never saw Greene before he was released.February 10, 2021 at 6:28 pm #153948kscardfanParticipantFree

Has he had TJ yet?February 10, 2021 at 8:22 pm #153963CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Of course no one hits HR’s against him. No one has the courage to dig in against wild heat like that.February 10, 2021 at 11:12 pm #153969
What’s not to like about young Johan? Rememberances of Randy Johnson anyone? If Kruk would have had to face our new addition here, he never would have left the dugout, let alone stand in vs Johan. Love the addition…. love how the roster is shaping up…..and isn’t Mo on one whale of a roll! Mo’s sizzling streak is nearing Joe Dimaggio’s 56 game consecutive hit territory as far as GM feats are concerned. We have stats for everything else in baseball these days…….why not for managerial and GM’s. Any other Bill James’ out there?February 11, 2021 at 12:02 am #153971mspaidParticipantFree
Take a breath…Arenado was a great addition. This kid may flop like most prospects, Fowler was paid to just go away, no one else wanted Molina or Wainwright so they came crawling back here. Mo is hardly a front office legend for a couple of moves and I don’t see Branch Rickey soiling himself in amazement. Everyone should probably scale back the euphoria a little and play out the season.February 11, 2021 at 12:44 am #153972

Never take your eye off the ball. What we’re witnessing here is a GM coming into his own….in grandiose fashion. Sit back and enjoy the ride, as 2021 is going to be a doozy.February 11, 2021 at 4:38 am #153973blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
With downhill like that he doesn’t need to throw 100. Maybe the Cards can fix him.
I assume an A level guy got a cuppa last year because he was on their alternate site roster and they needed an arm. Also assume TJ at end of 2016, but there could be another explanation for the 2017 gap in his record.
Anyway, it would be fun to see Waino have to look up at someone if they ever cross paths.February 11, 2021 at 6:45 am #153977Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual

Johan is a big guy. His MiLB #s are so-so…. 1K/IP. He should fill-in nicely at Memphis and be ready for a call-up if need be with his 40-man spot. He’ll be 27 in Aug.February 11, 2021 at 12:53 pm #154006
Anyone know how to pronounce Johan’s last name? My many years of speaking the Spanish language tells me it’s “Kay-sada”, but I have a hunch that it just might be spiced up with a little Latin zest, like possibly “Koooo-zaaada”. Regardless, this guy is very very fixable and hopefully very very teachable. With Johan’s physical makeup, if those two things( teachability and fixability ) collide, watch out….here we come CY.February 11, 2021 at 5:28 pm #154033bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Don’t ask me about pronouncing names. When I was a kid way back when and got the 1965 Topps Mike Cuellar card in a pack, I had never heard of him. I wondered who this Mike “Soo-larr” guy was. I would have called Julian Javier “Jew-li-an Jave-yer”, but when I first got his card, a ’62 Topps, and showed it to my dad asking him who he was, he told me and being much more worldly wise correctly pronounced the name as “Who-lee-an Hav-ee-air”.
But I remember reading an article back then where his Cardinals teammates would tease Javier, asking him how he hit against “Hoo-ee Hay” (Reds righthander Joey Jay for our younger readers).
Also my ’63 card of the Braves third string catcher was Bob “Yoo-ecker”. So our new acquisition would be Johan “Kwa-zada”.February 12, 2021 at 9:16 am #154062gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
Anyone who throws 100 mph has potential. If our coaches can work with him on his mechanics to get some control we may have something here.February 12, 2021 at 10:31 am #154082shakenbake McBrideParticipantFree
Randy Johnson didn’t start to get his BB rate under control until he was 30+ years old.
