BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 A card-carrying member of the international Brotherhood of Back-Up Catchers, Triple-A Division, Guillermo Quiroz has posted positive WARP figures twice in parts of eight seasons in the majors: 0.1 both times.
2011 Thanks to the two hits he managed in his seven September plate appearances, Guillermo Quiroz was the only Mariners catcher to finish with a positive VORP. The seven-year major-league veteran sports a .192 career TAv, so the 40 plate appearances hes averaged per season sounds about right.
2010 Guillermo Quiroz hasn't hit in years, but maybe one day the same capriciousness that favors Koyie Hill or Wil Nieves, or Omir Santos will smile on him.
2009 You don't expect much offense from a backup catcher; it's in the nature of the beast. Oriole fans have gotten to used to an exceptionally uninspiring display, as Quiroz becomes the fourth Oriole backup backstop in five years who failed to deliver even a .200 EqA. It isn't clear whether he'll be an O or an ex-O in 2009, but you can be pretty sure that he'll remain an offensive zero.
2008 Once seen as the Blue Jays' Catcher of the Future, Guillermo Quiroz has struggled through four straight injury-plagued seasons and will try to stick in Baltimore this spring
2007 Picked up on waivers from Toronto, Quiroz saw just how much his stock dropped when the Mariners sent him down to Double-A in July. Still, he showed a little life with the bat at Triple-A, and his defensive reputation remains intact. A free agent, he signed a one-year major league contract with the Rangers. He`ll compete with Miguel Ojeda for the backup job behind Gerald Laird.
2006 Quiroz struggled in his first exposure to Triple-A in 2004, and wasn`t helped any by questions about his conditioning or a broken hand that cost him serious playing time. But things only got worse in 2005: he suffered an upper back/shoulder injury, and also had to deal with a second collapsed lung, the same ailment that afflicted him in 2003. So what was supposed to be a year in which he bounced back instead saw him limited to 177 PAs before heading off to the Arizona Fall League, where he didn`t hit. He still showed good power in his limited time, and will be in the major league mix this year, assuming he can keep both lungs inflated.
2005 Injuries marred Quiroz's progress for a second straight season. A pitched ball broke a bone in his left hand, costing him a couple of months and dampening his output when he came back. He's still regarded as a good defensive catcher, even though his caught-stealing numbers dipped. As a hitter, he'll rely on his extra-base power, putting runs on the board without reaching a .280 average. Likely to be underrated throughout his career, which will begin for real in July.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Only after drafting Ramon Hernandez did it strike me that, if he looks anything like he did in 2006, the O's could move him. What do you think?
(Sully from Los Angeles, CA)
I'd say you're quite right, and it isn't like the difference between Hernandez and Guillermo Quiroz is going to make all the difference between 63 wins and 62. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What will be the sleeper transaction of this offseason?
(Matt from SF, CA)
Off the top of my head, I still really like the Orioles signing Guillermo Quiroz. Given some time, I'm sure there's something better; Quiroz is just one of those guys I haven't given up on long after everyone else has moved to some other flavor of Kool-Aid. (Christina Kahrl)
