Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2020
2019
Quiroz is proof that it's better late than never as a baseball player, as he made his MLB debut in 2022 at the ripe old age of 30. He appeared in 14 games for the Cubs and tallied a .275/.370/.275 slash line across 40 at-bats. Quiroz didn't have any home runs, though he did record three runs, three RBI and a stolen base. The veteran had a productive career in Mexico before joining the Red Sox organization in 2017 and subsequently bouncing around the minors the past few seasons. He's unlikely to become an everyday option for the rebuilding Cubs, though the infielder could stick around as depth behind younger players such as Nick Madrigal and Nico Hoerner. Quiroz's debut was a nice story in 2022, but his fantasy outlook for 2023 isn't particularly inspiring. He'll likely begin the year in the minors and probably won't see enough playing time to make an impact.
Quiroz's emergence had a small part to play in the Padres shipping Luis Urias to the Brewers this offseason. He has been a star in Mexico and has shown well in affiliated ball since signing with the Red Sox in 2017 and subsequently getting traded to the Padres after impressing in the Arizona Fall League in 2018. While he is entering his age-28 season and has not yet made his big-league debut, his exploits in Mexico (at least 17% better than league average from 2014-2017) in his early-20s should not be overlooked. The 5-foot-7 second baseman controls a small strike zone (14.2 BB% at Triple-A) and logged a .299 ISO at Double-A and a .268 ISO at Triple-A. Since he is not yet on the 40-man roster, Jurickson Profar, Ty France, Greg Garcia and Jake Cronenworth may all be ahead of him on the depth chart for 2020, but things could change as the season progresses.
Quiroz joined the Red Sox prior to 2018 after spending the first seven seasons of his professional career in the Mexican League, where he hit a combined .293/.402/.451 across 437 games. The infielder was limited to just 24 games with Double-A Portland due to an abdominal strain that sidelined him for three and a half months, but he impressed when healthy, hitting .299/.413/.598 with seven homers and 24 RBI with the Sea Dogs. Quiroz, who is small at 5-foot-6, is known for his patience at the plate, which has led to OBPs north of .400 in each of the past three seasons. He strictly played second base in 2018 after playing all around the diamond during his time in Mexico. Now with the Padres following a November trade, Quiroz will likely begin his age-27 season back on the farm, though he could be an option for the big club at some point in 2019 if he continues to impress at the highest levels of the minors.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could get September callup
2BSan Diego Padres  
August 10, 2019
Quiroz, who now has a .908 OPS with Triple-A El Paso after hitting a walkoff grand slam Friday, may be in line for a September callup to the Padres.
ANALYSIS
Signed out of the Mexican League by the Red Sox prior to the 2018 season, Quiroz was traded last November to San Diego in exchange for Colten Brewer. He's not really a "prospect" in the traditional sense at 27 years old, but the numbers so far in affiliated ball suggest there may be something there with the diminutive second baseman. Quiroz has posted a 14.7 percent walk rate with El Paso this season and is enjoying the livelier ball at the Triple-A level, hitting 19 homers in 334 plate appearances. He is not currently on San Diego's 40-man roster.
