Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Edgar Quero began playing in the Los Angeles Angels organization in 2021, when he appeared in 29 games for the ACL Angels and another 10 with the Inland Empire 66ers. His combined line was was .240/.405/.463 with 5 homers and 30 RBIs. In 2022, he was back with Inland Empire, in the California League where he had an excellent season, batting .312/.435/.530 in 111 games, with 17 homers and 75 RBIs. He was named the circuit's MVP, as well as a league All-Star and an Angels organizational All-Star.

In 2023, he started the season with the Rocket City Trash Pandas of the Southern League, where he hit .246 in 70 games. He was named to the 2023 Futures Game, where one of the opposing catchers was the unrelated Jeferson Quero, who is from Venezuela, then on July 26th he was traded to the Chicago White Sox along with P Ky Bush in return for two major league pitchers, Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez. The trade, one of a number of similar deals made by L.A. around the trading deadline, backfired badly for the Angels, who were trying to finally get Shohei Ohtani into the postseason, as the team played very poorly following the deals and quickly erased any remaining hope of postseason play. Meanwhile, they had parted with a number of top prospects, including Quero, who finished the year with the Birmingham Barons. There, he hit .277 in 31 games to finish with a combined line of .255/.380/.351 with 6 homers and 57 RBIs in 101 games.

Edgar was born and grew up in Cuba, playing with their U15 national team at the 2018 U15 World Cup in Panama. He left the island with his family in 2019, fist settling in Haiti and later in the Dominican Republic. He was signed by the Angels on February 26, 2021 for a bonus of $200,000.
