Earlier this offseason Jon Morosi mentioned how great Quiroz looked in the Premier 12 with Mexico Baseball and thought he was MLB ready.
#Padres infielder Esteban Quiroz has impressed scouts at the @Premier12 while playing for @MexicoBeis. San Diego’s 40-man roster is crowded, but Quiroz can play in @MLB right now. Reminds me of Kole Calhoun at the plate. @MLBNetwork

And then just recently, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune published an article about Quiroz possibly forcing the hand of the Padres with how well he’s played this offseason.
