Quesada was 0 for 2 as a rookie for Cienfuegos in 2004-2005. He became the team's starting second baseman in 2006-2007; the teenager hit .274/.357/.313 and fielded .977. He improved his batting line to .281/.345/.421 in 2007-2008 but his fielding fell to .965. Moving to third in 2008-2009, he batted .310/.381/.478 and fielded .923. He hit .304/.404/.514 with 20 doubles and 51 runs in 87 games in 2009-2010, fielding .919 and making 24 errors. He was only 3 for 18 with a double and a walk in the postseason.  He tied for 5th in the Serie Nacional with five triples.
After missing a season, he returned to hit .287/.410/.459 with 51 walks and 56 RBI in 96 games in 2011-2012, fielding .913 with a league-high 25 errors. He hit .353/.400/.471 in the postseason this time. He cut his error total all the way down to 12, fielding .951, in 2012-2013 while batting .298/.412/.450 with 28 doubles and 50 walks in 87 games. He was one double behind league leader Andy Ibáñez. He was 0 for 2 for Cuba in the 2013 World Port Tournament.  He hit .322/.434/.443 with 28 walks to 9 whiffs in 43 games in 2013-2014 then defected.  He drew no interest from MLB teams, though. He played briefly for the Águilas Cibaeñas in the 2015-2016 Dominican Winter League, going 1 for 5. He then went to Venezuela for a try-out in their league. 
He returned to Cienfuegos in 2018-2019, part of a trend of defectors returning to Cuba (Yuniesky Betancourt and Erisbel Arruebarruena also returned around this time).  He picked up pretty much where he left off, not showing much rust, at .301/.417/.490 with a .921 fielding percentage.  Like Arruebarruena, he then made the Cuban squad for the 2019 Premier 12. He got into one game, pinch-hitting for Frederich Cepeda in the 9th inning of a 7-0 loss to South Korea and singling off Seung-ho Lee.
