Phillies Prospect Quinn Tears Achilles – Phillies Nation

Phillies Prospect Quinn Tears Achilles

According to a report from CSN, the Phillies top prospect at shortstop, 20-year-old Roman Quinn, ruptured his right Achilles tendon and will be out indefinitely. He injured the leg doing sprints.

Quinn was a second round pick in the 2011 draft and was heading into the 2014 year as the Phillies fifth best player in the farm system, according to Baseball America.

Quinn, who missed significant time last year with a fractured wrist, hit .238 with 32 steals in 67 games at Single A Lakewood. Clearly, speed is his best attribute and he’ll now be dealing with a major leg injury and could very well miss the entire upcoming season.

CSN also reports Quinn was slated to retreat to the Dominican Republic to the Phillies developmental academy.

    Quinn was insanely fast. I saw him win a game in Williamsport with his speed. I hope he gets through this without much speed lost.

    Hear that? The sound of the future crumbling. Hope Crawford stays healthy.

    Who cares he only hit .230 in Lakewood. Last thing this team needs is another .200 on power hitter. I’m so sick of hearing about this guy, he’s got speed that’s it and nothing more. The phillies need to realize real talent, this guy isn’t it. I also can stand how the phillies shun the talented players they do have. Like Kelly Dugan. Kelly didn’t even make the the top ten prospects list,, I can’t understand why, but Quinn did why .200 batter in single a is poor.

      @Matt, not sure what you mean by the Phillies “shunned” Dugan. It’s not the Phillies who make those top 10 lists, it’s analysts and scouts. Dugan is a pretty good prospect, he may not be a starter but he’ll probably have a decent major league career, and I’m sure he’ll appear on top 20 lists, and maybe even some top 10’s.

      But a few things to consider:
      1) age: Quinn was only 19 last year and 20 this year. Dugan is two years older so he should be more advanced
      2) position: Quinn is a shortstop/CF and Dugan is a corner OF. Dugan is supposed to hit much better, because there are lots more players who can handle the corner OF spots.
      3) you can’t just look at one year. Last year at only 19, Quinn hit .281/.370/.408 (.778 OPS). That is very good for a shortstop.

      My two cents, fwiw.

    “I also can stand how the phillies shun the talented players they do have. Like Kelly Dugan. Kelly didn’t even make the the top ten prospects list.”

    Did the Phils shun Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Cole Hamels, Rollins, etc? Are they shunning Brown, Galvis, or Acshe?

    Also, it’s not the Phils who pick out the top ten prospects, it’s sportswriters, and their lists differ sometimes. They base their reports on who they believe has the most potential, not who mighty finally have a good season after several years of injuries, like Dugan.

      Brown should be traded,,, but yes they do shun galvis and they already have talked about moving Ashe. Ashe is a very good player and has gotten better every time they moved him up. He’s worth keeping.
      I’m sorry but Quinn is not going to be a .300 hitter ever! 238 in Lakewood single A is bad. That doesn’t normally relate into a great major league hitter.

        Brown wasn’t shunned, he was hurt all the time, that’s why he took so long to make it to the majors. So he’s here now and guess what, he got hurt what a surprise. Who the f gets hurt on a buss.really , he banged his chin on the ground diving at a ball he should have gotten to standing up, then went on the dl. Great, lots of upside there first full year and he couldn’t stay off the dl. Awesome just what the teams needs a 27 year old who’s hurt as much as a 40 years old.
