He went 7 for 31 (.226), with 3 doubles in those games. The bulk of his playing career was spent in the minor leagues from 1993-2005. Mosquera played in the Toronto Blue Jays system for seven years before starting to move from organization to organization.
After completing his playing career, Mosquera joined the New York Yankees player development team. He was a coach for the Staten Island Yankees in 2006-2007. Simultaneously he worked as the Yankees minor league catching coordinator, a role that he retained through the 2014 season. Since 2015 Mosquera has been a manager in the Yankees organization.
