Biographical information[edit]

Jackson Quezada was a minor league relief pitcher who played from 2006 to 2008 and in 2010. Though he never reached the major leagues, he made the San Diego Padres 40-man roster at one point.

Quezada began his professional career in 2004 with the DSL Padres after being signed by scout Felix Francisco, going 5-4 with a 1.37 ERA and only walking 13 in 72 1/3 IP. In 2005, he was 6-1 with a 1.97 ERA for the same club.

He came stateside in 2006 with the Eugene Emeralds, going 2-2 with a 4.19 ERA in 18 games (four starts). He tied for the Northwest League lead with three balks. The following year, again with the Emeralds, he went 3-2 with a 3.75 ERA in 21 relief appearances. He also struck out 29 batters in 24 innings. With the Fort Wayne Wizards in 2008, he made 59 relief appearances, going 2-4 with a 2.12 ERA. He had 79 strikeouts in 63 2/3 innings. He led the Midwest League in games pitched and saves (27). He was one of two relievers chosen for the league All-Star team. The Padres added him to their 40-man roster that winter. He did not play in 2009, but returned in 2010 to go 0-0 with two saves and a 3.91 ERA in 21 appearances for the AZL Padres, Fort Wayne TinCaps and Lake Elsinore Storm.

Overall, he was 18-13 with 36 saves and a 2.45 ERA in 143 games (24 starts). He struck out 253 batters in 279 innings.

Quezada was a pitching coach for the DSL Padres in 2012-2016, AZL Padres 2 in 2017, DSL Padres again in 2021-2022, and DSL Padres Brown in 2023-2024.
