From 1983 through 1992, Quiñones played for the Oakland Athletics (1983), San Francisco Giants (1986), Chicago Cubs (1987), Cincinnati Reds (1988–91) and Minnesota Twins (1992). He was a switch-hitter and threw right-handed.

A favorite of not only his managers in Cincinnati, Pete Rose and Lou Pinella, Luis was also a extremely popular with Reds fans, who loved his hustle and dedication. He drove in what would be the winning run in Game 6 of the 1990 NLCS, a 2-1 Reds victory.
