Kevin Quackenbush Receives The Call 

Kevin Quackenbush, who possesses one of the best names in all of baseball, is getting called up to the big leagues.

Quackenbush has been an outstanding reliever at every level he’s pitched at. The highest ERA he’s posted over a full season was last year’s 1.66 ERA. Prior to last year, Quackenbush never had an ERA over 1.00. Quackenbush is a strikeout machine. The lowest K/9 ratio he’s put up over a full season is 10.1, he owns a career 12.0 K/9 ratio.

Quackenbush has nailed down 66 saves over 74 chances in the minors, including a perfect 4-for-4 this year with El Paso. His single season career high in saves is 27 which he achieved with Lake Elsinore in 2012.

He put up a 4.50 ERA over 8 innings pitched in Spring Training this year, but considering how successful he’s been throughout every level of the minor leagues, it would not be surprising to see him succeed immediately at the major league level.

Over his minor league career, Quackenbush appeared in 153 games. He went 15-5 with a 1.19 ERA and 233 strikeouts over 174.2 innings. Opponents hit just .199 off of him.
