CARDS I HAVE PLAYER POSITION REMARKS
2 David Qualben Cards Pitcher
# 7 pick in the June 2006 draft was a league All-Star in each of first two seasons, with 2006 at Tri-City, and in 2007 at Lexington, where he was the only Legend selected to the midseason game. Qualben led those Legends in wins, innings pitched and ERA. Didn't pitch particularly well at Salem in 2008, and didn't get a card appearance, either. Lexington Legends logo
33 Chad Qualls Cards
Pitcher
 
Houston Astros logo, 2000 -
Righthanded reliever with a penchant for the double play ball became, on July 22, 2004, the first Houston Astro with the last initial of 'Q' to play in a major league game. As of this writing and perhaps for some time to come, the only Astro pitcher to have given up a Grand Slam in a World Series game. Led the Astros in games pitched each year between 2005 and 2007. Traded with Chris Burke and Juan Gutierrez on December 14, 2007 for closer Jose Valverde. Returned to the Astros in 2014 as he signed a two-year contract with a club option on the third in December
6 Carlos Quevedo Cards Pitcher
2008 Venezuelan Summer League MVP. Came to Greeneville in 2009, and had a nice 55:9 ratio, but gave up 7 homers over 51 or so innings in a league where a home run was hit every 13-1/3 innings. Led the 2010 Tri-City ValleyCats in IP, Wins, and WHIP, and co-led (with Bobby Doran) in starts. July 2010 Pitcher of the Month for the V-Cats, as well. Pitched exclusively at Lexington in 2011, won a Pitcher of the Week award in August, and ended up leading the SAL in BB/9IP. Midseason All-Star for Lexington in 2012, then got a promotion to Lancaster, where he had a very nice 2.03 ERA in 15 games. Decent ratio at Corpus in 2013, and finished fourth on the team in WHIP among those who had at least his 81 IP
Houston Astros logo, 2000 -
4 Euris Quezada Cards Pitcher
6'6" NDFA from Sabana Larga, DR didn't do too well with Gulf Coast in 2009, but led the 2010 Greeneville Astros in IP, and tied for the lead in starts. Only pitched in nine games for Tri-City in 2011, then pitched at three levels in 2012, doing well at Greeneville and Tri-City but struggling a little with the K/BB and ERA at Lexington
Greeneville Astros logo
4 Ed Quijada Cards Pitcher
16th round pick in the June 1988 draft drove in 36 as a third baseman for the 1990 Asheville Tourists, then switched to pitching, and won 8 while losing 10 at Asheville and Burlington in '91 and '92. 1991 - 1992 Burlington Astros logo

Major league veteran signed a minor league contract in March of 1993 and was assinged to Tucson, where he got 136 at bats and hit .221
4 Cesar Quintero Cards Infield
Tri City ValleyCats logoAfter a short, successful tryout stateside with Tri-City in 2006, finished second on the '07 Lexington Legends in average and third in stolen bases. Got most of the starts in left for the 2008 Salem Avs, and led the club in whiffs, too
40 HUMBERTO QUINTERO Cards
Catcher
 
Backup catcher acquired from the Padres straight up for Tim Redding in March of '05 played some excellent D, and threw out 37 of those attempting to steal off him with Houston. Waived at the end of a rather strong Spring '08, Q cleared waivers and ended up playing a career-high 59 games with Houston in between injuries and after JR Towles was found wanting as the heir apparent to Brad Ausmus. The long loving goodbye he gave to his first home run as an Astro, on August 15, 2005, must be mentioned here, and was bush, in the extreme.

1 Rodney Quintero Card Pitcher

One of only eight pitchers (and one of only five homegrown) to have won 100 games in an Astros uniform had uncanny control of his split finger and a predeliction for the long ball.

Five-time Opening Day starter and an All-Star in 2000. Reynolds was surprised to say the least when he was cut at the end of Spring Training '03, but Atlanta and Arizona both concurred that Mr. Reynolds was in fact done

One of five pitchers (with Dierker, Forsch, Wilson and York) for the Astros in 1974 to post an ERA+ above 100, and co-led the team (with Griffin) in Complete Games.

Houston Astros logo, 2000 - logo
Busted for lying about his age (and his name!) midway through a so-so minor league career, Houston's all-time strikeout leader among southpaws had growing pains as he matured, but by the turn of the decade had become one of the major's premier curveball artists. When he was traded to the Pirates on July 24, 2012, Wandy had long been the last link to the World Series team, and had also wrangled the number two spot among Astros lefthanders in Wins, Starts, and Innings Pitched

The all-time whiff king and the first million-dollar free agent is a deity in Texas and the club's all-time leader in strikeouts. Several, however, have bested his 106 wins for Houston, and many his .530 winning percentage. Threw his fifth no-hitter on September 27, 1981 vs. the Dodgers, and had perhaps the greatest 8 - 16 year ever in 1987, when he led the league in ERA and strikeouts. Wished he'd pitched better in Game Two of the '86 LCS, that's for sure
