Quezada was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
The Phillies' bullpen had one of the worst seasons of all time in 2020, posting a 7.06 ERA as a unit. Quezada could presumably help his new team, though he hadn't pitched above High-A prior to this season and threw just three innings for the Marlins this year, so he shouldn't be expected to fill a significant role any time soon.
Quezada was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.
The 26-year-old had his contract selected by Miami last week and will return to the alternate site after his first taste of major-league action. Quezada threw two scoreless frames in his first two outings, but in his third appearance he gave up three runs on four hits.
Quezada had his contract selected by the Marlins on Friday.
The 26-year-old will provide some bullpen depth for the Marlins for the final few weeks of the season. Quezada finished 2019 at High-A and had a 3.44 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 49:28 K:BB over 52.1 innings while in the Twins' organization.
