TA 9/12/21: Quezada Off COVID-19 Related IL, Fernandez to 60-day IL

The Cards announced the following transaction this morning:

9/12/21: Activated RHP Johan Quezada from the COVID-19 Related IL. To make room on the 40-man roster, transferred RHP Junior Fernandez from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL. 40-man roster still full.

This transaction is largely a procedural move, since it doesn’t affect the active roster of the big league club, but it is still worth discussing. The Cards acquired Quezada from the Phillies in a straight cash trade one week before pitchers and catchers reported to 2021 spring training. I covered the trade here, and explained that although Quezada has been in organized baseball since the 2013 season, he actually has very little experience.
