ALEJANDRO QUEZADA
Signed by Cincinnati Reds
Posting fee: $400,001
Quezada (now known as Alejandro Diaz), the first player posted in the MLB posting system, never made it to the majors. A quick outfielder, Quezada stole 34 bases his first season between Cincinnati’s Single-A and Double-A affiliates, but never made it to Triple-A.
Verdict: MISS
